Accuforce Wheel

So I get this email yesterday saying the long awaited Accuforce Wheel from Sim Xperience is now available to purchase. Whattttt? Sweet!! Now I need some money for it. Lets see maybe sell my existing setup, work some overtime, sell a kid whatever it takes. lol
As promised Sim Xperience released this sought after wheel in 2014 and it will ship in early 2015. If you signed up for the wait list like me you get an email that says you have 3 weeks to complete the purchase for early access to the wheel. Others will have to wait until Jan.21 before they can purchase it.
The intial release will be the Accuforce Pro with the Momo version at a later time. Either way the Pro kit looks awesome and
you can always add a Momo wheel later.
I’m curious to see what games will be supporting this high end wheel from the start. I’m sure all the sim titles that are already supporting Sim Xperiences software SimVibe will be good to go, but what about new titles like The Crew or F1 2014. I’m really hoping that new titles will support the new Accuforce wheel going forward. I’m also curious if I can make my existing DSD button boxes and Sim Instruments dash fit. Accuforce does show to support many add on accessories so I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
I’m very existed about this new wheel and I can’t wait to see some testing on it. Let me know what you think.
For now check out what SimXperience says about there new awesome wheel below.
The SimXperience AccuForce Pro is a professional racing simulation steering system. When combined with todays best racing simulation games, the AccuForce Pro is as close as you can get to driving the real thing and is delivered in a convenient, ready to run, plug-n-play package.
The key to it’s incredible realism is our groundbreaking direct drive motor control system. We’ve engineered an integrated motor controller / PC interface as opposed to communicating between two different circuit boards as is common in the industry. This allows the AccuForce to provide lower latency, better response and more accurate detail reproduction than competing direct drive systems. Combined with a motor that’s specifically designed for racing simulation, the AccuForce system provides the best possible balance of torque, response and most importantly, fidelity and linearity. The end result: a driving experience that’s second only to the real thing.

Controller & Base Unit Features

  • Unparalleled Steering Feedback Quality & Realism
  • Direct Drive System (Wheel connects directly to motor shaft, there are no belts to slip, wear or absorb critical detail)
  • Powerful, Low Inertia Motor supports up to 13Nm of sustained torque depending on the user selected mode *
  • Easily dial back the forces for safe use by friends and family
  • User selectable modes (similar to those on a stereo) allow easy selection of linear performance, peak performance, soft performance, child mode, etc.
  • Extreme efficiency (13Nm sustained torque at 100% stall for 30 minutes with 2°F temperature rise over ambient with 0% torque loss due to heat fade)
  • Excellent balance of torque and torque resolution results in an extremely refined and realistic feel
  • Torque peaks are removed by default to ensure a truly 1:1 linear experience (option to enable peaks is provided)
  • Up to 2000Hz Communication Rate via SimXperience Dual Stream Technology (1000Hz from Game / 1000Hz from Sim Commander software)
  • Motor updated 50,000 times per second / Realtime encoder processing
  • Lowest possible latency / lag due to integration of controller and motor drive system on a single circuit board and custom motor design
  • Integrated slip rings ensure long life and great electrical contact while providing for infinite wheel rotation
  • 4500 degrees of rotation, configured for 900 degrees by default. User may opt to alter this setting in real-time
  • 16,000 PPR (pulse per revolution) positional feedback
  • Engineered for many years of reliable service in commercial environments. (Critical parts are stress tested for 300lb loads)
  • Includes FREE Sim Commander SimVibe and Steering system tuning / analysis software suite
  • Three force feedback (FFB) options: traditional raw game FFB, SimXperience / user optimized game FFB and completely user definable FFB
  • Robust tuning capability via touchscreen or in game heads up display via included software
  • Easily auto-optimize feedback for your driving style, driving line and a particular car/ track combination
  • Firmware updates are automatically delivered and install in seconds with a single button click. No need to hunt for them on a website
  • 3-Port USB hub on back of base unit enclosure
  • Expansion ports for additional displays, buttons, pedals and rotary encoders
 * – Measurement taken with digital torque wrench at motor stall. Manufacturer stated margin of error is +-5%. When designing mounting systems and evaluating safety concerns, please design for a 16Nm peak torque scenario.
