New shift force measurement for AUTOPILOT Systems
November 2009 - Release of the new designed shift hand (grabber of shift lever knob) with integrated force measurement.
Due to the mechanical design of the shift actuator with the spherical motion and the special application of the sensors, the forces are measured always as applied orthogonal to the shift knob in the X and Y directions, independent to the angle of the shift lever.
The grabber can be adjusted to the size of the shift lever knob.
