Iris has completed their latest project: force feedback for rudder pedals! We have taken our magnetic linear motor and scaled it to produce high force, high fidelity, and silent actuation for Precision Flight Control’s Dual Professional rudder pedals. The motor can produce up to 45 lbf at 350 W sustained through a mechanical arm advantage. All in all it can generate over 100 lbf at the user’s feet. Additionally, the fast responding air-cored inductors on the actuator are capable of producing vibration effects well beyond 500 Hz.
Check out the system below or at the 2016 I/ITSEC conference in Florida.
