Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate
The Heusinkveld 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.
The brake and the clutch both feature a 2-way damper. This damper adds resistance depending on how fast the pedal is pressed or released. The throttle pedal features a damper which resists speed at the ingoing stroke. This helps with smoothing the throttle application and it is also used on some real race cars for this purpose. The resistance of all dampers can be adjusted.
The hydraulic system of the Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate has proven to be ultra-reliable and does not require periodic maintenance. Even in the unlikely case of a failure, all hydraulic dampers can easily be removed while the pedal still retains its basic functionality as the pedal sensors are separated from the hydraulic circuit.
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 136kg or 300lbs max force, this pedal easily requires 36x 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 Ultimate feature a regressive spring mechanism allowing you to greatly adjust the effort, travel and feel. The maximum pedal effort of 45kg or 100lbs is again far greater than that of regular consumer grade pedals, but lighter settings are easily selected.
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.
As the pedals are a generic USB device this means that nearly every racing title is supported. All major games such as rFactor1 & 2, iRacing, Assetto Corsa, Project CARS, F1 Codemasters, Dirt Rally etc all work without any issues. Professional Pedals are compatible with most racing titles but in the event that your game is incompatible, please get in touch and we’ll find a solution.
