Steering Wheel System measures data in test applications.
December 2, 2009 -
Instrumented Steering Wheel System, Model 5610-10A, enables true-to-life data measurements in automotive ride and handling tests. With supplied adaptors, telemetry-based system installs in same position as OEM steering wheel for similar ergonomics and driving dynamics. Sensors measure angle, angular rate, and torque, while function keys include autozero for steering angle and steering torque; shunt calibration; and function lock. Vehicle's active ESP is fully supported and not compromised.

PCB Automotive Sensors Introduces their New Instrumented Steering Wheel System
For Automotive Ride and Handling Test Applications
Novi, Michigan, USA - PCB Automotive Sensors, a division of PCB Piezotronics, introduces their new Instrumented Steering Wheel System, Model 5610-10A, for vehicles that enables true-to-life data measurements. The telemetry-based steering wheel with supplied adaptors can be installed in the same position as the OEM steering wheel to provide similar ergonomic feel and driving dynamics. The unit is equipped with integrated sensors to measure angle, angular rate, and torque. The vehicle's active Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is fully supported and not compromised. PCB® Model 5610-10A units provide advanced integrated function keys, which include autozero for both steering angle and steering torque, shunt calibration, and function lock. The four integral switches located on the steering wheel within thumbs reach allow the unit user-programmable controlling options. Equipped with an integrated inductive power supply, Model 5610-10A Instrumented Steering Wheel Systems provide continuous running wireless operation.
The accompanying compact signal conditioning unit is designed for use where space is at a premium. Measured signals are retrieved directly from the signal conditioner via electrically isolated connectors. An optional CAN interface, for integration with data acquisition systems, or a USB interface used with computers, are available for further data recording and analysis.
