New automotive actuators from TT Electronics deliver significant improvements to next generation haptic accelerator pedals
Compact design offers reduced weight, optimised temperature performance and low power consumption
Weybridge, UK, 14 July 2016 – TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, has introduced new automotive actuators for next-generation of haptic accelerator pedals. The new TT Electronics actuators tackle the weak spots of systems currently available on the market, offering a sub 400 gram total weight, a significant reduction from the total weight of comparable pedals.
The TT Electronics haptic pedal actuators enable power-efficient transmission, consuming less than one watt of energy with an active actuator when it reaches a pedal force increase of at least 10 newtons. The pedal force the driver feels increases when the drivetrain changes from battery to combustion engine. The additional pedal force can be customised according to OEM specification.
The TT Electronics actuator offers a high degree of reliability without long-term degradation across -40°C to 80°C. Offering a substantial improvement on conventional systems which can frequently fail to function after increased or long duty cycles or across wide temperature ranges.
The simple, lightweight, rugged and compact TT Electronics actuator provides optimum design possibilities for customer-specific applications.
