Description Technical Specs
 
Feel more connected with the road than ever before with this small yet powerful and responsive servo base. The latest technology in sim steering systems today is direct-drive force feedback and this direct-drive base is part of a complete system we have engineered to be as responsive as possible. We take the benefits of direct-drive a step further by engineering it with the lowest rotating mass possible. This wheel base has a whopping 16Nm of peak torque combined with the lightest internal rotating assembly which enables the driver to feel even the tiniest of details.

In much the same way reducing the mass of an engine's internals improves its responsiveness by allowing it to accelerate and decelerate quicker, the same applies to the force feedback motor assembly. Our design concept of keeping the rotating mass low enables the wheel to accelerate and decelerate quickly when needed thereby resulting in a more responsive wheel. Direct-drive technology has been touted as being the best because there are no gears and belts between the motor and the steering wheel, thereby creating a direct link to the driver's hands. Ricmotech takes this a step further by eliminating excessive mass between the motor and the driver's hands.

We start with a direct-drive motor that has the smallest shaft length and diameter in use today and we created the connection to the wheel to be as lightweight as possible. We fabricate a milled aluminum flange for mounting the wheel and refrain from using overweight extensions and adapters which would create muddy sensations in the force feedback. When this direct-drive motor is combined with one of our lightweight wheel rims the result is a smooth and responsive sensation which makes you feel better connected to the road.

An additional benefit to our design is the slim profile of the direct-drive motor itself. The enables better placement of monitors and gauges by practically eliminating clearance issues.

The wheel base is driven by the powerful SimCommander software which has the greatest amount of adjustability of any direct drive wheel on the market. The software can be used to configure the wheel and then closed which lets the wheel work connected directly to the game software or SimCommander can be left running to tailor the force-feedback effects to enhance the immersion. SimCommander also includes a SimVibe license used to drive vibration transducers such as Earthquake shakers mounted at the wheel or throughout your sim-rig to increase the feedback and immersion of your sim.

Features
  • Unparalleled Steering Feedback Realism
  • Direct Drive System eliminates friction and reduces rotating mass
  • User selectable modes (similar to those on a stereo) allow easy selection of linear performance, peak performance, soft performance, child mode, etc.
  • Extreme efficiency (13Nm sustained torque at 100% stall for 30 minutes with 5°F temperature rise over ambient with 0% torque loss due to heat fade)
  • Excellent balance torque resolution results in an extremely refined and realistic feel.
  • Torque peaks are removed by default to ensure a truly 1:1 linear experience.
  • Up to 2000Hz Communication Rate via SimXperience Dual Stream Technology
  • Lowest possible latency / lag due to integration of controller and motor drive system on a single circuit board and custom motor design.
  • Maximum 6000 degrees of rotation, configured for 900 degrees by default.
  • Includes Steering system tuning / analysis software suite.
  • Includes integrated SimVibe software.
  • Three force feedback (FFB) options: traditional raw game FFB, SimXperience and user optimized game FFB and completely user definable FFB
  • Extreme tuning capability
  • Easily auto-optimize feedback for your driving style, driving line and a particular car/ track combination.
  • Firmware updates are automatically delivered and install in seconds with a single button click. No need to hunt for them on a website.

More Force Feed back the Accu Pro October 28, 2017
Reviewer: Rodney DeFlumeri from Chapin, SC United States  
Excellent feel, easy mount and you have Sim Commander software at you finger tips. I also added a 350 MM MOMO Wheel. You can’t even compare this to the other Thrustmaster Wheel’s or Bases... Again must have for serious Sim Racers, it will take you to the next level...
