Simucube 2 Ultimate Direct Drive force feedback wheelbase puts you in the absolute lead position through its unmatched personalization of force feedback characteristics and unparalleled responsiveness.

Abundant 32 Nm of torque and maxed-out torque response rate is at your disposal at any time. Ultimate is based on Austrian made maximally dynamic industrial motor optimized for simulation. It is equipped with a 24-bit resolution Hiperface angle sensor to be fully utilized by the most advanced signal processing unit seen in simulators.

Includes: SC2 Ultimate wheel base, power supply, cables, EU-power cable, Premium Torque off button.

Torque reconstruction processing

By passing the simulator’s sometimes coarse digitally sampled force commands through Simucube’s world-famous force reconstruction engine, the driver will be able to feel the force feedback like it was intended by the simulator’s physics engine.

Adjustable torque slew rate limit

Limits the rate of change in motor torque measured in Newton-meters per millisecond. May be used to adapt sharpness to the fast torque spikes to driver’s preference. The maximum settable slew rate depends on the DD motor (see the comparison table for details).

Natural damping, inertia and friction filters

In addition to simulator controlled damping, inertia and friction effects, Simucube 2 implements real-time physics modeling based user-controllable versions of them. Thanks to a high precision angle sensor in all Simucube 2 modes, these feel practically indistinguishable from real physical phenomena.

Advanced filter parameters (Ultimate only)

Simucube 2 Ultimate adds more detailed tuning parameters to many of the listed signal processing methods and filters. Adjustable parameters include defining the frequency bandwidth of the signal processing allowing drivers to fine-tune the ultimate optimum setting for their rig and simulator. Ultimate drivers also have access to early access features and filters from SC developer team.

Hot Swap Wheels

Becoming a master of multiple race car classes is finally reality without a single compromise. Different kinds of wheels are rapidly and securely interchangeable thanks to solid-metal Quick Release and low-latency Wireless Wheel connection.

Simucube Quick Release™ (SQR)

Precision machined full-metal Simucube Quick Release guarantees zero-backlash and rock-solid operation even under the extreme torques of direct drive wheelbase. Guided rail design ensures perfect lock-in every time, and the spring preloaded pin mechanism will ensure non-degrading tight coupling over thousands of swap cycles.

Just like the rest of Simucube,  SQR has been built to be virtually immortal. The only theoretically wearing part, spring-loaded pin mechanism, is made out of standard stock parts making it user-serviceable.

Simucube Wireless Wheel™ (SWW)

The built-in wireless wheel receiver in Simucube 2 automatically connects to your Simucube Wireless Wheel just by briefly pressing both paddle shifters simultaneously.

The wireless wheel transmission protocol has been specially engineered to provide consistent and unbreakable millisecond range response times, as well as an extremely long battery life of over 5 years. Swapping of the wheel will also take effect immediately without the need of re-assigning controls in the simulator.

Full metal construction

The body of Simucube 2 is built from precision machined solid metal parts. It’s pretty hard to find a plastic piece in it – pretty much the only non-metallic one is the antenna for the Wireless Wheel Receiver.

Direct Drive brushless torque motor

The motor is an extraordinary one. Simucube developer team compared over 40 motors, hand-tested over ten of them, picked the best three motors, and finally customized them to suit flawlessly in direct drive racing simulation. SC2’s latest generation motor technology delivers unforeseen torque response rate and clarity. FEM optimized motor magnetic design yields practically zero torque ripple and magnetic cogging. Simucube 2 ‘s are also individually tested and verified to exceed inhumanly tight tolerances in production.

Dual CPU architecture

To unleash the full potential of the glorious motor and to process signals at maximum precision, Simucube 2 has been given a dedicated 216 MHz real-time processor in addition to a dedicated 144 MHz PC USB interface CPU. Unique dual CPU architecture ensures zero impact on ultra-low latency performance even when all processing and simulator actions are running simultaneously. The new 216 MHz processor features superscalar ARM architecture, making it effectively four times faster than the 72 MHz processors of IONI drive in Simucube 1.

Oversized rugged power components

All Simucube 2’s electronics have been designed in Finland by Granite Devices. The team that is also known for their reliable industrial motor drives. Simucube is built with the same uncompromising industrial quality principles. This means prioritizing ruggedness and longevity over the cost of the components. Simucube 2 power MOSFETs are rated over 2X their actual need to make them virtually immortal.

Robotics grade angle sensor

Simucube 2 Pro Direct Driver motor comes equipped with precision industrial robotics grade angle sensors with a resolution of 4 Million steps per revolution. The quality of the angle sensor information has paramount importance when calculating natural physics effects and filters. Any imperfection of the sensor signal would feel like a distortion in reality. All Simucube 2’s signal processing units are optimized to take full advantage of the unmatched sensor precision.

Isolated surge protected USB

No Simucube driver shall ever become the victim of an interference-prone USB connection. Thanks to a galvanic isolation layer between the USB and power electronics. This also protects the PC from current spikes. Also, all connectors found on the back of Simucube 2 are ESD protected, exceeding the industrial requirements

Passive Cooling

Thanks to high-efficiency direct-drive operation optimized motors and clever electronics heat guiding; there is no dust collecting nor noisy fans in Simucube 2. A High-efficiency motor puts out less heat and consumes less power.

Remote Torque off button

Because high torque may pose a hazard if the simulator software goes nuts or if the driver becomes careless with the high torque wheel, every SC2 comes with an externally mountable Torque-off button. Optionally the button box may be upgraded to a stylish all-metal version with an additional external power switch.
