Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Pro
Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Pro are suitable for serious simracers. A strong, stiff, compact and durable design using custom developed 12bit USB electronics for an instant response.
The pedal geometry and pedal force is fully adjustable. Maximum brake force is 55kg (120lbs), maximum clutch force is 14kg (31lbs). All stainless steel parts are tumbled before assembly. This results in a smooth finish with a minimum of sharp edges.
Designed with CAD and FEA, all structural parts are CNC precision laser cut stainless steel. The pedals are strong, stiff, compact and durable. Mathematical models were made to calculate pedal travel and operating force, predicting with great accuracy how each pedal feels in all of its many different configurations. Design tolerances have been optimized in order to have a minimal amount of unnecessary play.
Load cells are used on all three pedals. On the throttle and clutch they work as positional sensors, on the brake they measure the pressure put on the pedal.
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.
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.
The dual stage brake system consists of an initial coil spring, simulating the pad to disc gap and progressive rubber springs. The pedal firmness is adjusted by selecting from 10 different rubber stack heights.
With 55kg or 120lbs max force, this pedal easily requires 15x more effort than regular consumer grade brake pedals. Braking using muscle memory improves accuracy and consistency.
Clutch pedals often get lighter towards the end of their travel. The Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Pro feature a regressive spring mechanism allowing you to greatly adjust the effort, travel and feel.
The maximum pedal effort of 14kg or 31lbs is again far greater than that of regular consumer grade pedals, but lighter settings are easily selected. There are effectively 15 different feel settings to choose from, 10 are drawn in the chart below.
Every set of Sim Pedals comes with a USB-controller and a USB-cable. The controller has 3 RJ-sockets with a load cell amplifier to which the pedals are connected.
Additionally, the controller features connectors for 12 buttons and 4 regular analogue axes. This means that you can connect additional hardware such as button boxes, shifters and rotaries to the board.
