SKF Steer-By-Wire Modules are plug-and-play mechatronic components that combine intelligent sensing technology with operational functionality. The module provides an electronic signal that gives information on:
1. the speed and acceleration of steering.
2. the direction of steering.
3. the relative position of the steering wheel.
The plug and play module includes
-an SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearing
-an active sensor
-a steering shaft
which are compactly integrated into a strong steel housing. The exterior surfaces are galvanicly coated for protection against corrosion for severe environments. The modules have a temperature range from -40 to +70 °C. They are sealed and greased for life and maintenance-free, thus relubrication and steering torque adjustments are never needed.
