ARC_Team have announced the availability of their premium sim racing pedal set, ARC_Pedals.
ARC_Pedals is a product of excellence, unique in its kind, dedicated to the most demanding sim racers and riders. Treated in design, detail and finishes, ARC_Pedals is the typical expression of Italian craftsmanship, respecting the tradition of “Made in Italy”. Every building step are carefully followed by our staff, as well as the choice of materials which, in addition to being functional for their purpose, give also to the product a sober and elegant look. The flexibility is what featured ARC_Pedals from the other products in the market: the system to set and calibrate it together with the great realism of braking force and feeling.
The pedals settings and the innovative braking system has been patented by ARC_Team, an unique system which allows you to overcome the limitations found on the main existing products on the market. For example, the use of hydraulic or load cells: these architectures have some troubles as an harder maintenance, possible oil leaks, and difficulties to find a good feeeling for the progressive braking force (with the load cells); in add, the use of pins to set every time the pedals, to adjust stroke and position. To avoid these situations, the ARC_Team system uses a screw and sliders mechanism that allows an infinite settings on the three axes while the other part provides to re-charge the air cylinder, working at low pressure; the braking pressure can be adjusted thanks to a depression screw. The tests did on the brake pedal module showed that it is possible to arrive till 85 Kg on the pedal, with the chance to increase the load pressure needed changing the air cylinder size. Each module is equipped with a linear potentiometer that is fitted to avoid any useless movement.
While ARC_Pedals are compatible with both PC and PS3 they are high end sim racing product, designed for hard-core simulation use and hence priced accordingly (from 1148€!). Further information available at the ARC_Team online store.
