CURTISS-WRIGHT'S INDUSTRIAL DIVISION LAUNCHES NEW ELECTRONIC SUSPENDED PEDAL

Curtiss Wright Industrial Group News and PR from Curtiss Wright Industrial Group - Published 17 March 2016 Cost-effective pedal optimizes driver ergonomics
Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division today announced it has launched the WM-554, a compact, lightweight and cost-effective electronic suspended pedal from the Corporation’s brand family of Williams Controls.

Featuring a non-contact, Hall-effect sensor that can be factory-programmed for dual analog output (APS), the WM-554 suspended pedal provides smooth driver operation and is available with a standard pedal travel of 19 degrees. The WM-554’s lever arm and mounting bracket can be customized to assist installation and optimize driver ergonomics in the vehicle cab environment.

Key features of the WM-554 include:

A product life of 3 million travel cycles
Operating force between 17N (idle) and 35N (full travel)
Robust, durable design enables high static load capability and environmental protection to IP67 – suitable for exposed operator cabs
Lever arm and bracket can be customized to suit specific vehicle designs
The WM-554 launches with a 5Vdc supply voltage, including electronics that are fully compliant with industry-standard electro-magnetic emission regulations (SAE J1113).

The new pedal assembly uses a corrosion resistant, coated steel mounting bracket and high-strength composite plastics for the body and pedal arm. This creates a highly-ruggedized and lightweight construction, making the WM-554 ideal for all industrial and commercial on- and off-highway vehicle applications, including medium-duty trucks and vans, buses, recreational ATV’s, military and construction vehicles.
