SWS steering wheel sensor for warehouse trucks

The SWS Steering Wheel Sensor, has been introduced by Allied Motion Technologies, a compact steer-by-wire steering wheel feedback sensor designed specifically for warehouse vehicles like reach, counterbalance, and lift trucks. Steering wheels can be mounted directly to the SWS and connected to a CAN bus.

Without the need for a mechanical connection, truck designers are free to position the steering wheel where it is most suitable from all aspects - ergonomic, practical, and economical. For drivers, the SWS delivers a superior steering feeling from its no stick-slip, no wear, integrated magnetic friction system.

SWS Steering Wheel Sensor highlights include: 

  • Compact and flat, the unit mounts directly to most vehicle steering wheels.
  • High-resolution sensing (≥16,384 steps/rev).
  • Integrated connector for simple installation and high reliability.
  • IP67 rated, complies to PL d according to ISO13849.
  • CAN communication output.
  • Excellent steering feel.

The SWS works seamlessly with Allied Motions’ EPS steering actuator motor for responsive, accurate warehouse and utility vehicle steering.
