Sim Pedals Ultimate

Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate are suitable for high-end professional motorsport simulators. A strong, stiff, compact and durable design using custom developed 12bit USB electronics for an instant and accurate response. Maximum brake force is 136kg (300lbs), maximum clutch force is 45kg (100lbs). Fully adjustable pedal geometry and pedal force & adjustable hydraulic damping on every individual pedal.

Starting from €250

Race simulations are getting more and more realistic. If you want to up your game, standard pedals won’t do the job. Heusinkveld Engineering presents some of the highest quality, most adjustable and affordable pedals on the market: the Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate. This high-end pedal set can be used in the most demanding environments and is capable of simulating the pedal forces as experienced in F1 and LMP-cars.

Designed with CAD and FEA, all structural parts are CNC precision laser cut stainless steel. The pedals are strong, stiff, compact and durable. Mathematical models were made to calculate pedal travel and operating force, predicting with great accuracy how each pedal feels in all of its many different configurations. Design tolerances have been optimized in order to have a minimal amount of unnecessary play.

All stainless steel metal profiles are bead blasted with glass beads before assembly. This results in a high quality semi-gloss metallic look with a minimum of sharp edges.

Load cells measure throttle and clutch position and brake pressure. Unlike designs with rotary potentiometers, load cells provide true linear output in relation to your pedal input. Their accuracy and durability are unmatched as they do not wear over time.

Custom developed 12bit USB electronics make sure each pedal responds instantly and accurately in your favorite simulator software. Travel is adjustable from 10° to 20° on the throttle and from 14° to 24° on the clutch. All end stops are ‘soft’ for a quality and neighbor friendly sound and feel.

The Sim Pedals Ultimate are a full-hydraulic pedal set: All 3 pedals feature an adjustable hydraulic damper. As pedal assemblies in real cars have hydraulic flow through hoses, tubes and cylinders, we use these to simulate the damping effect that these assemblies normally provide.

The brake and the clutch both feature a 2-way damper. This damper adds resistance depending on how fast the pedal is pressed or released. The throttle pedal features a damper which resists speed at the ingoing stroke. This helps with smoothing the throttle application and it is also used on some real race cars for this purpose. The resistance of all dampers can be adjusted.

The hydraulic system of the Sim Pedals Ultimate has proven to be ultra-reliable and does not require periodic maintenance. Even in the unlikely case of a failure, all hydraulic dampers can easily be removed while the pedal still retains its basic functionality as the pedal sensors are separated from the hydraulic circuit.

Smooth, accurate and greatly adjustable, the throttle pedal gives you excellent control with exactly the travel, pre-load and spring stiffness you prefer. The charts on this page show the various travel and resistance curves for each pedal. The values are measured at the ball of the foot where force is applied.

Brake

The dual stage brake system consists of an initial coil spring, simulating the pad to disc gap and progressive rubber springs. The pedal firmness is adjusted by selecting from 10 different rubber stack heights. With 136kg or 300lbs max force, this pedal easily requires 36x more effort than regular consumer grade brake pedals. Braking using muscle memory improves accuracy and consistency.

Clutch

Clutch pedals often get lighter towards the end of their travel. The Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate feature a regressive spring mechanism allowing you to greatly adjust the effort, travel and feel. The maximum pedal effort of 45kg or 100lbs is again far greater than that of regular consumer grade pedals, but lighter settings are easily selected. Various obtainable feel settings are drawn in the chart below.

Controller

Every set of Sim Pedals comes with a USB-controller and a USB-cable. The controller has 3 RJ-sockets with a load cell amplifier to which the pedals are connected.

Additionally, the controller features connectors for 12 buttons and 4 regular analogue axes. This means that you can connect additional hardware such as button boxes, shifters and rotaries to the board.
