 Electric Power Steering

  • Compact design offering all components required for the steering

  • 13 % energy saving in VDI cycle thanks to power-on-demand technology

  • Easy-to-assemble design

  • Omission of all hydraulic components, therefore no assembly costs incur for the currently used hydraulic steering (valves, tubes, hoses)

  • Maintenance free

  • Ease service due to self test routine

  • Harmonized system components (transmission, steering motor and –controller, steering angle sensor)

  • Transmission with automotive gearing guarantees an extremely low noise level

  • Excellent driving ergonomics (e.g. steering ratio adjusted to actual driving situation)

  • Steering parameters matched to customer specifications

  • New features via software modification (e.g. signaling straight-line driving by modifying the steering resistance)

  • ZF-tested interaction of all system modules

  • 100% EOL tested

  • ZF’s system responsibility

  • Certified according to UL583E.

  • Functional system safety approved by the Technical Control Board (TÜV Süd) according to DIN EN 13849,PL d conformity.
