Mechanical Rotary Steering System

Steering Systems


AMER has developed advanced steering systems for controlling modern AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) and traction vehicles. The AMER steer-by-wire systems are rotating mechanical systems. One side can be mounted to the machine frame, while the other side supports the steered wheel. The steering systems can be equipped with both PMDC and BLDC motors. The steering angle is read through an encoder mounted directly on the steering shaft (i.e., the wheel plate). Furthermore, the rotary steering systems can be equipped with a controller to control the steering motor. The steering system can be further integrated into the vehicle automation system or used as a manual control system.

Various variants are available in terms of steering speed and steering force: inquire with our application engineers for more information. The AMER steering systems are mechanically directly compatible with the AMER Wheel Hub Motors. If desired, these can be delivered pre-assembled. A steering unit can also be completely customized, both mechanically and electrically, tailored to your specific requirements.
