AEVIT 2.0® Steering Systems When Using the Factory Steering Wheel is not an Option All AEVIT 2.0® systems operating the vehicle steering controls, share the same control module and drive components. The only difference between the systems is the “plug & play” Input Device(s) that you will use. Each of the systems or “Series” listed on this page will contain the standard components… plus one of the Input Options chosen from below.
The W-Series is a Steering only system that utilizes a miniature 5″ diameter wheel input device, and is the favorite amongst 2-handed drivers for ease of use. The total number of rotations from full left steer to full right steer is 5-6.7 turns depending upon the vehicle. This equates to an approximate 2:1 ratio between the W-Series input device and the OEM steering wheel. The input force required to turn the wheel is approx. 0.2 lbs. as measured at the proper orthotic position of 3.4″ from center. The W-Series measures 5.0” x 4.0” x 2.5” and weighs approx. 3 lbs.
Is a Steering only system that utilizes a single axis joystick input device. The exposed height of the joystick is approximately 4.25” and an angular displacement, or range, of only 50 degrees is required to move the input from the full left steer position to full right. The mechanism is extremely low-effort, requiring a maximum input force of only 0.2 lbs, and is internally spring-loaded to return to the center, or null, position. The joystick is coupled internally to 3-independent and redundant electronic devices for unsurpassed safety and reliability.
