Single & Dual Pinion Assist EPS

Pinion Assist EPS expands the application range and flexibility compared to Column Assist EPS.

Our PEPS system positions the motor, controller and assist mechanism on the steering gear pinion shaft.

Single Pinion Assist EPS

Single Pinion Assist EPS (SPEPS) integrates the electric assist mechanism into the primary steering gear pinion shaft. Single Pinion EPS has a design range comparable to Column-Assist EPS, but offers OEMs greater packaging flexibility, reduces OEM crossbeam strength/stiffness requirements and reduces torsional compliance of driving torque through the column and intermediate shaft assemblies.

  • Capacity: 90+Nm assist torque (10.5+kN depending upon c-factor)
  • Typical vehicle applications: A-B-C segments
  • Premium steering feel, driver comfort and superior handling
  • Modular design, scalable for global platforms

´╗┐´╗┐Dual Pinion EPS

Dual Pinion EPS allows for the primary pinion to be optimized for vehicle dynamics and performance and a secondary pinion to be optimized for assist. It also provides additional design flexibility to locate the motor, controller and assist mechanism opposite the driver side of the vehicle underhood.

  • Capacity: 100+Nm assist torque ~12.5+ kN rack load (depending on c-factor)
  • Typical vehicle applications: C and D segments
  • Premium steering feel, driver comfort and superior handling
  • Modular design, scalable for global platforms
