The all new Heusinkveld Sim Handbrake is a versatile, pressure sensitive USB simulator handbrake using load cell technology. Using Heusinkveld elastomer springs, it has a firm and adjustable progressive feel with up to 22kg of force at the lever (120kg load cell). Complete freedom to create custom output curves with Heusinkveld SmartControl. Adjustable horizontal or vertical lever with fine-tune adjustment. Comes with an optional adapter plate with yaw adjustment for aluminium profiles.
When rallying or drifting, you want full control. The new Heusinkveld Sim Handbrake is a highly adjustable, pressure sensitive USB handbrake using load cell technology. A wide range of options to set your preferred mechanical feel, complete freedom to shape the output curve using Heusinkveld SmartControl. A versatile, high quality handbrake system.
Designed with CAD and FEA, all structural parts are CNC precision laser cut steel with a bead blasted or fine-structured powder coat finish. It is strong, stiff and durable.
Our new Sim Handbrake has retained the overall lever dimensions of its predecessor, yet can handle a higher force and does this with a much more compact base. This makes installation in your simulator much easier.
The Sim Handbrake comes with a powerful configuration tool allowing you to set up your handbrake in ways not previously possible: SmartControl. SmartControl allows for instant mapping of (non-linear) output curves, deadzone and handbrake force.
These adjustments can be made without having to recalibrate the handbrake (including iRacing). All settings can be saved into profiles, which can be loaded again in a few mouse clicks.
There are multiple options to mount the Sim Handbrake to your simulator. The base itself can be mounted in both a horizontal or vertical position. Combined with the option to mount the lever horizontal or vertical you’ll have plenty of options to find a suitable spot for the handbrake in your simulator.
The base of the handbrake itseld can be mounted in 2 ways. The first option is to use the 4 mounting holes on the base itself (2 on each side), which allow you to mount the handbrake to a flat surface. Make sure you have matching mounting holes in the flat surface to which you connect the handbrake base.
The second option is to use the included optional adapter plate. This allows you to easily mount the Sim Handbrake to aluminium profiles (aluminium profiles not included).
An added advantage of this adapter plate is that it allows you to easily adjust the yaw of the handbrake. This allows you offset the yaw of the handbrake base up to 22,5 degrees.
Using the yaw adjustment, you can rotate the base so you can optimize the direction into which you pull the lever. This can vastly improve the ergonomics and integration of the handbrake in your simulator.
A selection of bolts and t-nuts is included with every Sim Handbrake. These should enable you to mount the handbrake to most aluminium profile based rigs using the adapter plate.
Because of the wide variety of rigs present in the market we cannot guarantee that the supplied materials will allow you to mount the Sim Handbrake to every rig. If you for example mount the handbrake to a (drilled) flat surface, you need to source the appropriate length bolts + nuts yourself in order to complete the installation.
You can find the product manual in the Support section of our website. A printed manual is included with every handbrake.
This product is compatible with the PC / Windows platform. It cannot be used on consoles such as Xbox or Playstation.
The handbrake is pre-calibrated (plug-and-play). If you want to use SmartControl to recalibrate or adjust certain handbrake settings, you need to run Windows 10.
