Allied Motion Introduces SWS Steering Wheel Sensor

Allied Motion Technologies has introduced the SWS Steering Wheel Sensor, a 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. For drivers, the SWS delivers a steering feeling from its no stick-slip, no wear, integrated magnetic friction system.

SWS Steering Wheel Sensor highlights include:

  • The unit mounts directly to most vehicle steering wheels
  • High-resolution sensing (≥16,384 steps/rev)
  • Integrated connector for installation
  • IP67 rated, complies to PL d according to ISO13849
  • CAN communication output

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