The SimuWHEELgt steering wheel box is designed to be an economical solution to adding a fully functional steering wheel to Direct Drive wheel systems based on the Granite Devices SimuCUBE SC1 control board. This steering wheel box interfaces directly with the SimuCUBE in a plug and play fashion and functions as part of the SimuCUBE when connected.
This wheel box will not work as a direct USB system but can be used in conjunction with the PSUSB_28x for USB functionality. USB functionality is not needed when used with the SimuCUBE or the Sim-Pli.city SM-12 adapter.
The SimuWHEELgt is designed to be compatible with a majority of standard real world steering wheels with 70mm or 74mm PCD. The adjustibility in the paddle switch mount allows for a range of wheel diameters from approx 300 - 350mm. Some flat wheels may need a spacer ( PSW_s ) between the box and the wheel for proper clearance of the wheel grips. PS1004 Spacers are available to move the paddles further from the wheel rim for additional finger space.
The SimuWHEELgt DOES NOT standard come with paddles Switches and Paddles standard. These can be added to your box if you require. The wheelbox does include all of the mounting provisions and plates for the paddles should you chose to purchase them at a later date. If paddles are not used on the SimuWHEELgt the inputs for those inputs can be used for other buttons or switches by wiring them into the box.
The SimuWHEELgt is available in two material choices, Aerospace Grade M2.25 Woven Carbon Fiber Plate or M2.0 Black Surface G10. The Graphite version is stornger and lighter than the G10 version.
