Proper damper control is extremely important in regulating the flow of air inside a duct. In many applications, HVAC contractors are able to install an automatic motorized system. Unfortunately, not all installations can accommodate an automatic damper, or, it isn’t the best application. In cases such as these, manual cable drive systems are the perfect solution.
Interest in manual cable drive systems is becoming increasingly popular. During construction, they install quickly and easily reducing time and cost. Manual drive systems work with round, oval, or rectangular shaped components. We can even custom build the damper tube or attach it to your fitting. Unlike motorized control systems, there is no need to build accessibility into the project. Manual control systems won’t ever need replacing.
Featuring a flexible cable and wire that can be routed around electrical conduit, piping, or any other obstruction, the rotary-to-linear mechanical actuator assembly sets the damper in position for preciseness and dependability. The cable can be as long as needed for easy control. We are also working on developing a central control center for the cables where damper adjustment will be as easy as turning a knob!
Manual control is the ideal option for consumers who want to have more control over airflow and a motorized system isn’t practical. Motors are often placed on the outside of the ducts making them inaccessible and difficult to control or replace.
An ALAN Manufacturing Cable Damper System includes:
- An assembled ALAN Actuator and push/pull sleeved cable providing rotary actuation with a simple turning motion
- Standard 42” of sleeved cable with end units for easy attachment to the adjustment lever of the damper blade (can be made available in longer custom lengths)
- Cable mounting support to mount the cable to the casing of the damper
