New SWS Steering Wheel Sensor for Warehouse Trucks Compact, integrated steering wheel sensor with adjustable steering feel (haptic) and CAN bus
Amherst, NY – November 4, 2018 – Allied Motion Technologies has introduced the SWS Steering Wheel Sensor, a compact steer-by-wire steering wheel feedback sensor designed specifically for warehouse vehicles like reach, counterbalance, and lift trucks.
Steering wheels can be mounted directly to the SWS and connected to a CAN bus. Without the need for a mechanical connection, truck designers are free to position the steering wheel where it is most suitable from all aspects - ergonomic, practical, and economical. For drivers, the SWS delivers a superior steering feeling from its no stick-slip, no wear, integrated magnetic friction system.
SWS Steering Wheel Sensor highlights include:
- Compact and flat, the unit mounts directly to most vehicle steering wheels
- High-resolution sensing (≥16,384 steps/rev)
- Integrated connector for simple installation and high reliability
- IP67 rated, complies to PL d according to ISO13849
- CAN communication output
- Excellent steering feel
The SWS works seamlessly with Allied Motions’ EPS steering actuator motor for responsive, accurate warehouse and utility vehicle steering.
