Mechanical adjustments


When the device tab is viewed for the very first time, the device configuration window is displayed automatically and calibration is forced. After this, the configuration can be launched from a configure -button on top of the device window.


Follow the setup procedure in the following order.

1 – Set physical configuration

There are two configurations on the configuration panel which need to match the physical ActivePedal configuration:

  1. Force adjustment piece position: High / Low
  2. Rod length (3 positions): Short / Middle / Long

Match the physical configuration and the configuration seen in the software.

2 – Set pedal starting position

Set pedal starting position by moving pedal rest position slider. Pedal moves to the position when mouse button is released. The pedal starting position affects on maximum movement range of the pedal — the more forward the position, the greater the travel range of the pedal. The rest position can also be used to align the pedal plate position.

3 – Set pedal role

Pedal role drop-down menu is used to select the role of the pedal — Brake, Throttle or Clutch. If more than one pedal has the same role or the role has not been selected, a yellow circle will indicate a configuration error.

4 – Perform calibration

The ActivePedal calibration measures forces during calibration to suit a variety of scenarios. Press the “Calibrate force sensor” button to begin the calibration process.

It is recommended to calibrate the force sensor everytime the ActivePedal is moved, reattached or when the physical rod configuration has been changed.


Do not press or move pedal when performing calibration or while saving configuration — wait until the calibration dialog is closed.

Mechanical Adjustments

Pedal face angle, height and travel offset may be mechanically adjusted with the included Torx key.

Pedal face height

To adjust the height of pedal face:

  1. Loosen, don’t remove, the two (2) screws fixing the pedal, one on each side
  2. Adjust the pedal height
  3. Tighten the screws to approximately 3 Nm torque

Pedal face angle

To adjust the angle of the pedal face:

  1. Loosen, don’t remove, the four (4) fixing screws, two on each side
  2. Set the pedal angle
  3. Tighten the screws to approximately 3 Nm torque

Pedal travel offset

The easiest way to change pedal offset is done through Tuner configuration. To extend beyond software configurable travel range:

  1. Loosen the two (2) screws on pedal rod
  2. Move the sliding parts to the desired positions
  3. Tighten screws to approximately 3 Nm torque

Optimizing force vs travel

ActivePedal has two mechanical settings. Choose the mode according to your preferred force and travel range.

To change the mode:

  1. Re-assemble parts as illustrated procedure
  2. Tighten screws to appriximately 3 Nm torque.
  3. Update the setting under ActivePedal hardware configuration dialog in Tuner.


For most users, leaving this setting in default mode (high force & less travel) will be sufficient for all scenarions.
