A clutch feels lighter towards the end of travel. The Sim Pedals Ultimate+ clutch features a regressive spring mechanism simulating this concave force curve and also allows you to greatly adjust the pedal resistance, travel and feel.
The clutch features a 2-way hydraulic damper. This damping resists speed at the ingoing and outgoing stroke just as seen in real clutch assemblies. The amount of damping is adjustable.
A load cell provides a true linear input measurement of the pedal position. Custom non-linear output curves can freely be configured using Heusinkveld SmartControl software.
The brake features a realistic dual-stage brake system with a 200kg load cell, capable of handling actual pedal forces up to 140kg (measured at the pedal footplate). The adjustable coil spring simulates the initial pad-to-disc gap. The main brake springs are all-new custom-made Heusinkveld injection molded thermoset elastomers.
These proprietary elastomers are smooth and responsive and provide an unprecedented progressive brake resistance (concave force curve) just as you would have in a real race car. On the ongoing and outgoing stroke, they have a firm bump and rebound characteristics.
Automated testing shows these elastomers have zero performance degradation even after one million duty cycles. You can choose from a total of 9 possible resistance settings, allowing you set the pedal from very soft to extremely stiff.
The brake features a 2-way hydraulic damper. This damping resists speed at the ingoing and outgoing stroke just as experienced in actual brake assemblies. The amount of damping is adjustable
Smooth, accurate, and greatly adjustable, the throttle pedal gives you excellent control with exactly the travel, pre-load, and spring stiffness you prefer. The charts on this page show the various travel and resistance curves for each pedal. The values are measured at the ball of the foot where force is applied.
Load cells measure throttle and clutch position and brake pressure. Unlike designs with rotary potentiometers, load cells provide true linear output in relation to your pedal input. Their accuracy and durability are unmatched as they do not wear over time.
The Sim Pedals Ultimate are a full-hydraulic pedal set: All 3 pedals feature an adjustable hydraulic damper. As pedal assemblies in real cars have hydraulic flow through hoses, tubes, and cylinders, we use these to simulate the damping effect that these assemblies normally provide.
Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate+ uses a custom-made 12-bit USB controller, which works with Heusinkveld SmartControl software. After calibration every single pedal provides an output signal using the full 12-bit range, providing instant and accurate output to your favorite simulator software.
The controller enclosure is made of steel and is equipped with 4 mounting holes for easy mounting to your simulator. It can also be mounted to the underside of the optional Sim Pedals Ultimate+ Baseplate.
The pedals have passed full EMC compliance testing, guaranteeing a stable output signal regardless of other electronic components used in your simulator.
