7.4.2.2.2 Type values

Type Description
BEND

A fitting that changes the route of the cable carrier.

CONNECTOR

Connector fitting, typically used to join two ports together within a flow distribution system (e.g., a coupling used to join two duct segments).

CROSS

A fitting at which two branches are taken from the main route of the cable carrier simultaneously.

JUNCTION

A fitting with typically more than two ports used to redistribute flow among the ports and/or to change the direction of flow between connected elements (e.g, tee, cross, wye, etc.).

REDUCER

A fitting that changes the physical size of the main route of the cable carrier.

TEE

A fitting at which a branch is taken from the main route of the cable carrier.

TRANSITION

A fitting with typically two ports having different shapes or sizes. Can also be used to change the direction of flow between connected elements.
