Leading European manufacturer KYOCERA AVX Components has launched the latest series of accelerator pedals for trucks – and they’re all set for whatever demands the future may hold.
Electronic accelerator pedals for passenger cars from several well-known car manufacturers were already well established in the market when the first development of an electronic truck pedal went into series production in 2004. Since then, KYOCERA AVX Components has steadily and successfully expanded its portfolio in the truck sector, and today, it is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of truck pedals.
Proven mechanics with state-of-the-art electronics – many of the leading truck manufacturers rely on this, with their vehicles having to withstand the highest loads. In Asia too, especially in India and China, the pedals have conquered a market and in many cases prevailed over the local competition. Optimum fuel efficiency via the driveline is important, as is the ‘feel’ for the driver. After all, the accelerator pedal is the interface between the driver and the machine, often over many thousands of hours and more than a million kilometers.
Accelerator pedals from KYOCERA AVX Components have proven themselves millions of times in the field, and are already used in e-trucks. They combine the advantages of state-of-the-art technology with proven components at low weight, and are proven to be very robust and durable. The latest generation of pedals is able to provide feedback to the driver about their driving behavior, or communicate information from supporting systems via a haptic signal. A suspended pedal variant also offers add-on options for retrofitting the haptic module at a later date. Read more about this pioneering technology here.
