Svend van der Vlugt of Heusinkveld Engineering has published their latest blog post on their website, announcing another product making its way to their lineup. Following the announcement of the Sim Shifter Sequential, the Sim Handbrake has been announced.
The Heusinkveld Engineering Sim Handbrake will feature a load cell pressure-based system, to try to provide a realistic feel, with replaceable rubber bushings to adjust the force required. The handbrake will also feature an overload protection, for increased longevity. Note that this will likely be a standalone unit (not able to plug into the Sim Pedals), due to the fact the H-Engineering’s pedal units only support 3 load cell connections.
More information will be released in the coming months, with the planned release date for the first run of handbrakes to be before the end of this year. Are you looking forward to giving Niels’ handbrake a go? Let us know in the comments!
NOTE: On the sim pedal side of things, a new pedal series is also in the final stages of development, catering to the commercial environments. The Sim Pedals RaceCenter Edition are being constructed with as few moving parts as possible. Intended for heavy use and operators with minimal sim equipment experience, these pedals will be built to last.
Some other developments are a baseplate for the Sim Pedals Pro, to allow for another way to mount the pedals onto simulators. People looking to order the Sim Pedals Ultimate will be in luck! Final parts for the next batch have been received, and orders will continue next month.
