Steering Encoder Units


SKF steering encoder units are steering input devices for steer-by-wire systems that combine reliable encoder technology with the simplicity of plug-and-play component packaging. The detailed design of the units is based on well-proven SKF technologies.

The units consist of:

  • A sealed SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearing for long service life and reliable performance
  • Bearing encoder technology for precise monitoring
  • A friction torque device, which provides feedback to the operator by providing ad equate resistance in the steering wheel
  • A mechanical interface for mounting
  • A shaft to connect the steering wheel

The units reliably fulfill the demands of industrial and off-highway vehicle steer-by-wire systems and:

  • Do not require any adjustment
  • Do not require re-lubrication during their expected service life and are virtually maintenance-free
  • Are supplied ready-to-mount (connection to a steer-by-wire system is achieved by plugs)
