Non-Air Bag Compatible Steering Effort Sensor

This steering effort transducer was designed to evaluate steering torque requirements of non-airbag equipped, new and existing steering systems and components used in automobiles, trucks, buses, and material handling equipment. Quantitative evaluations of steering systems, steering geometries, tire interactions, and safety factors are made using this device. The steering effort sensor is equipped with a 14” steering wheel. This is fastened to the existing steering wheel by means of a fixed or optional adjustable 3 point clamp assembly. For direct steering shaft attachment, a custom adapter plate is available.

Model number: 01027
