Heusinkveld Sprint pedals – Clutch Pedal
Every tenth of a second counts! If you’re looking for pedals that help you be fast and consistent, look no further. Years of experience and completely new test methods have been used in the development of this innovative top simulator product: the Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Sprint.
The Sim Pedals Sprint is a strong, compact, and highly customizable design with key parts made from CNC precision laser-cut steel, intended for your home simulator. Mathematical models have been created to accurately calculate pedal stroke and force curves, predicting how each pedal will behave in different configurations. All metal profiles have either a RAL7016 anthracite grey powder coating with a fine structure or a pearl-blasted semi-gloss metallic look.
The pedals feature all new bearing and pivot concepts to minimize unnecessary play. Automated test routines have been used to simulate up to 1 million operating cycles. Durable load cells measure throttle and clutch position and the force applied to the brake. Unlike rotary potentiometer designs, load cells provide true linear output relative to your pedal output. They are impervious to dust and dirt and do not wear out, resulting in unparalleled accuracy and long-term durability.
Custom-engineered and EMC-tested electronics ensure that every pedal responds instantly and accurately in your favorite simulator software. With the included SmartControl software, dead zones and braking power can be easily configured, and (non-linear) pedal output curves can be adjusted.
The clutch features a regressive spring mechanism to simulate a typical concave clutch curve. Furthermore, the clutch has three pedal force curve settings, adjustable spring preload, pedal angle, and pedal height. The graphs below show the effect of the force curve (left) and the preload adjustments (right).
