Electro-hydraulic steering system for heavy commercial vehicles
The electro-hydraulic steering system offers speed-dependent steering support with active response and consumes less fuel than purely hydraulic steering
The Servotwin augments the RB-Servocom hydraulic steering gear by one electric servo unit. In addition to the steering wheel actuating torque, the servo unit can increase the torque acting upon the steering gear.
The housing of RB-Servocom comprises steering valve, working cylinder, as well as a complete mechanical steering gear.
The main components of the electric servo unit are the electric motor, helical gear drive, control unit, torsion bar and a torque/steering angle sensor
Thanks to its electronic inter-face, the steering system is simultaneously the basis for driver assistance functions such as a lane-keeping assistant or cross-wind compensation.
