Torque feedback device.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

DANAHER MOTION, WOOD DALE, ILL, Danaher's new torque feedback device, or TFD, combines tactile and position or velocity feedback with a steering wheel interface in a compact, IP66 rated package. This allows electronic vehicle system, personal mobility, and related mobile off-highway machine builders to develop robust vehicles and machines that deliver the performance and maintenance benefits of electric or steer-by-wire systems, with the tactile response of a hydraulic system. The torque feedback device conies in five standard configurations, with torque densities ranging from 2.5 Nm to 12 Nm. They are tested to provide long life of more than 10 million revolutions at 120 rpm, and are engineered to operate in ambient temperatures from -35[degrees]C to 60[degrees]C. The TFD has a footprint as small as 3.25 in. (83 mm) x 4.00 in. (102 mm), and is available as a standalone component that can be integrated into nearly any electric or steer-by-wire system, or as part of a larger Danaher Motion vehicle system.
