  • Testing system using external DLC unit:
    • Stall engine status (vehicle not moving).
    • Crank engine status (vehicle engine starts working).
    • Run engine status (vehicle engine running).
  • Testing system behavior under normal and faulty conditions using the provided faults:
    • Torque sensor supply fault.
    • Torque sensor “main” output fault.
    • Torque sensor “sub” output fault.
    • CAN communication fault.
  • Observing electric motor steering system composition and components and the function of each component.
  • Observing the steering ratio, which is the ratio of rotations of the steering wheels and the turning angle of the wheels.
  • Electro-Mechanical Power Steering (BST104)
  • Bedo Software
  • Hard copy user manual

Electric power steering trainer (BST104) features a fully functional real vehicle electric power assisted steering with all its necessary components. The trainer enhances observing and understanding the operation of an electric steering power system and how this system assists the driver to turn the wheels of the vehicle accurately. Additionally , the system is capable of enhancing trainees faults finding skills of the electric power steering using the provided Software Faults to simulate most common system malfunctions.

  • The educational unit features an electric power steering system mounted inside a robust frame.
  • The unit includes all components required for the electric power steering system operation such as:
    • Steering wheel
    • Rack and pinion gear box
    • Electric motor
    • Torque sensor
    • Speed sensor
    • Control unit
    • Crank sensor
    • Two cam sensors,
    • Four anti – lock brake sensors
    • Tie rods of the wheels
  • The system is fully functional and guarantees accurate and effortless steering, where the control unit commands the electric motor attached to the pinion that drives the rack according to the vehicle speed and the amount of torque on the steering wheel feedback by the torque sensor.
  • The trainee can observe clearly the full operation of the vehicle steering and how the simple mechanism of a rack and pinion connected to an electric motor can convert the rotational motion of the steering wheel into linear motion needed to turn the wheels easily.
  • The unit is equipped with a port for DLC unit to connect an external faults diagnosis devices for further experimentation.
  • The unit is equipped with faults to simulate systems most common faults
  • A detailed and colored diagram for the electric steering system construction, printed on the control panel to help the trainee visualize the electric circuit of the system.
  • A dashboard is provided to display both engine speed (RPM) and vehicle speed (Km/H).
  • Two speed control knobs are used in the software to control engine speed and vehicle speed.
  • Operation module is equipped with ON/OFF switch , emergency switch, Circuit Breaker and ignition Switch.
