20Nm TFD Steering Units - Features & Specifications
Features & Benefits
- Tunable Steering Settings – an integrated controller uses inputs from the CAN-bus and proprietary algorithms to adjust how the steering system feels to the operator during various operating conditions, giving OEMs and vehicle integrators greater design freedom and reduced development time.
- Improved Operator Ergonomics – LORD patented magnetically-responsive (MR) materials provide smooth consistent resistive steering torque, giving the operator a greater sense of connectedness with the vehicle during steering events.
- Integrated Safety – dual isolated channels with two sensors per channel provides safety redundancy.
- Robust Design – compact, maintenance free, easy-to-install, functional under a broad set of operating conditions and environments.
