AccuForce Pro Steering System

AccuForce Pro Product Details

The SimXperience AccuForce Pro is a professional racing simulation steering system. When combined with todays best racing simulation games, the AccuForce Pro is as close as you can get to driving the real thing and is delivered in a convenient, ready to run, plug-n-play package.

The key to it's incredible realism is our groundbreaking direct drive motor control system. We've engineered an integrated motor controller / PC interface as opposed to communicating between two different circuit boards as is common in the industry. This allows the AccuForce to provide lower latency, better response and more accurate detail reproduction than competing direct drive systems. Combined with a motor that's specifically designed for racing simulation, the AccuForce system provides the best possible balance of torque, response and most importantly, fidelity and linearity. The end result: a driving experience that's second only to the real thing.

Controller & Base Unit Features

  • Unparalleled Steering Feedback Quality & Realism
  • Direct Drive Force Feedback System (Wheel connects directly to motor shaft, there are no belts to slip, wear or absorb critical detail)
  • Powerful, Low Inertia Motor supports up to 13Nm of sustained torque depending on the user selected mode *
  • Easily dial back the forces for safe use by friends and family
  • User selectable modes (similar to those on a stereo) allow easy selection of linear performance, peak performance, soft performance, child mode, etc.
  • Extreme efficiency (13Nm sustained torque at 100% stall for 30 minutes with 2°F temperature rise over ambient with 0% torque loss due to heat fade)
  • Excellent balance of torque and torque resolution results in an extremely refined and realistic feel
  • Torque peaks are removed by default to ensure a truly 1:1 linear experience (option to enable peaks is provided)
  • Up to 2000Hz Communication Rate via SimXperience Dual Stream Technology (1000Hz from Game / 1000Hz from Sim Commander software)
  • Motor updated 50,000 times per second / Realtime encoder processing
  • Lowest possible latency / lag due to integration of controller and motor drive system on a single circuit board and custom motor design
  • 4500 degrees of rotation, configured for 900 degrees by default. User may opt to alter this setting in real-time. Coiled cable limit is 1080 degrees.
  • 16,000 PPR (pulse per revolution) positional feedback
  • 16-bit control loop resolution
  • Game provided instruction to movement time of less than 2ms (1ms to instruct + 1ms for game to read back instruction is a round trip 2ms)
  • Engineered for many years of reliable service in commercial environments. (Critical parts are stress tested for 300lb loads)
  • Includes FREE Sim Commander SimVibe and Steering system tuning / analysis software suite
  • Three force feedback (FFB) options: traditional raw game FFB, SimXperience / user optimized game FFB and completely user definable FFB
  • Robust tuning capability via touchscreen or in game heads up display via included software
  • Easily auto-optimize feedback for your driving style, driving line and a particular car/ track combination
  • Firmware updates are automatically delivered and install in seconds with a single button click. No need to hunt for them on a website
  • 3-Port USB hub on back of base unit enclosure
  • Expansion ports for additional displays, buttons, pedals and rotary encoders

 * - Measurement taken with digital torque wrench at motor stall. Torque wrench manufacturer stated margin of error is +-5%. When designing mounting systems and evaluating safety concerns, please design for a 16Nm peak torque scenario.

Immersion is personal. The AccuForce includes our industry leading Sim Commander 4 software suite which provides unmatched tuning capabilitiy. Novice users and professional users alike can easily optimize the AccuForce for their driving style with a particular car/track combination. This functionality has previously been available only to the most well funded race teams.

The included Sim Commander 4 Software provides varying levels of tuning capability to suit both novice and professional simulator users. Novice users can choose to utilize a pre-made setup or simply alter intensity on a per effect basis. For example, if you wish to feel more road bumps or rear traction loss, simply increase the intensity of those sliders.

Team Engineers and other professionals may choose to dig deeper in to the Sim Commanders tuning capabilities. Adjustments are expressed in common terms such as Nm, millimeters per second, etc. Additionally, many effects can be filtered in terms of velocities, accelerations and smoothing.


Tuning a simulation steering system has traditionaly been a daunting task. Our research indicates that more than 80% of sim racers either don't have the knowledge or are not wiling to spend the time necessary to tune their wheel for an optimal experience on a per car/track basis.

The AccuForce and included Sim Commander 4 software provide an easy to use, yet robust tuning wizard. You simply drive a few laps with a particular car/track combination and with just a few clicks, we generate and apply the optimal settings for you!


iRacing users benefit from a special communication feature between the Sim Commander 4 software and iRacing. This allows us to provide a more accurate force feedback meter and automatically configure the in game force feedback settings for optimal results on a per car/track basis!

Force feedback clipping is now a thing of the past. Never before has it been so easy to get a perfectly tuned iRacing steering setup for your driving line and a particular car/track.


Not every game provides realistic force feedback and those that do are not always ideal for sim racers who are looking for every last on-track advantage.

The included Sim Commander 4 software offers a physics based alternative to simulation game provided force feedback. You can simply toggle off game force feedback and toggle on our simulation steering foundation effect, suspension bump effects, etc and craft your own force feedback experience. Our tests show that this helps already fast drivers become even faster by giving them more driving information and better awareness of the edge of traction.


In addition to the features listed above, the free included software offers virtual touch-screen dashboards, telemetry display, telemetry analysis, virtual touch-screen button boxes, wheel button mapping management and in game head up display for quick settings adjustments.

We take quality control VERY seriously. Our manufacturing process is ISO 9000- certified and all our products meet strict UL, CE, ROHS  and Microsoft standards.
