Tech-Info 07: What are the types of rope end connections
Rope end connections and rope ends
For some rope applications, e.g. pendant ropes, the rope length is essential. The following terms are used to describe the points of reference that are important to determine the rope length precisely. Some typical examples are added. By using the terms we want to make sure, that missunderstandings can be avoided. Besides the points of reference, the force under which the length must be correct shall also be determined by you. Without any information about the force, it is automatically assumed, that the length shall be correct at F = 0 kN. More detailed information about rope end connectors can be found here.
