Electronic Suspended Pedal
By Mike Brezonick21 January 2016
The Industrial division of Curtiss-Wright has launched a new electronic suspended pedal for industrial and commercial on- and off-highway vehicle applications, including medium-duty trucks and vans, buses, recreational ATV’s, military and construction equipment. The Williams Controls WM-554 suspended pedal incorporates a non-contacting Hall-effect sensor that can be factory-programmed for dual analog output (APS). It is engineered to deliver smooth operation and is available with a standard pedal travel of 19°. The lever arm and mounting bracket can be customized to assist installation and optimize ergonomics in the vehicle cab environment.
The WM-554 is rated for a product life of three million travel cycles and is designed to withstand high static loads. Utilizing a corrosion resistant, coated steel mounting bracket and high-strength composite plastics for the body and pedal arm, the WM-554 pedal is rated to IP67, making it is suitable for exposed operator cabs, the company said. The WM-554 launches with a 5 V d.c. supply voltage and incorporates electronics that are fully compliant with industry-standard electro-magnetic emission regulations (SAE J1113).
