Mechanical Linear Steering Systems

Steering Systems

VARIODRIVE offers linear steering systems for the flexible and scalable steering of traction vehicles and AGVs. Using a linear actuator from PARKER, the steering axle of the vehicle is rotated, which can be achieved through a linkage system or with a direct coupling.

The measurement of the steering position can be directly performed on the steering axle using a rotary sensor. We can also measure quite practically (and economically) on the drive motor mounted on the linear actuator. By converting this indirect position, we can accurately determine the steering angle. An additional advantage is the simple wiring.

The steering force and steering speed required for the vehicle can be determined by choosing the type of actuator and its driving mechanism. VARIODRIVE offers various options for this purpose. The motor control of the steering actuator can be achieved using a battery-powered controller from the mcDSA range by MiControl. The actuator can also be equipped with a motor featuring a built-in controller from JVL. This simplifies the system and makes it robust. The vehicle control can be made fully automatic using our advanced BERGHOF controllers, which can be controlled and monitored remotely.
