What is a MANUAL PUSH BRAKE & ELECTRONIC ACCELERATOR?
Developed on the basis of the HT-PUSH vertical brake, the new, electric SPEED&BRAKE - E vertical brake, the new, mechanical SPEED&BRAKE lever combines electronic acceleration and manual braking in a single device.
The braking function, unchanged from the original PUSH vertical brake, is enabled with a natural push forward movement of the lever, while the vehicle is accelerated pressing the button on the handle side, at the thumb level. The acceleration is modulated by a variation of the magnetic field, amplified by an electronic control unit interfaced to the original system of the vehicle. The change in magnetic field generated by a Hall sensor, not being subject to mechanical wear, greatly increases the life of the device.
The electronic accelerator of SPEED&BRAKE - E is activated by pressing a button after starting the vehicle and has been designed to interface with the original acceleration systems of different vehicles, while maintaining the same functional characteristics such as Cruise Control and Kick Down.
For easier acceleration and more complex driving situations a switch will enable the Park function and reduce acceleration by about 50%, optimizing the device control at low speed. The specific focus on ergonomics and design as well as the various device adjustments include the possibility of positioning the horn buttons and the electrified brake block on the right or left of the lever. The device is thus perfectly adapted to meet all user needs and can be easily integrated in the internal compartment.
The single lever SPEED&BRAKE - E, not being tied to the steering column, provides space for transfer from the wheelchair to the seat, while maintaining the safety features of the vehicle, such as knee airbags, steering wheel adjustments and does not require any changes to the plastic parts of the passenger compartment. When purchasing a new vehicle, this standard device will be easily transferred to it, while the previous car be restored to its original conditions
