Rack-assisted Electric Power Steering
Nexteer Automotive’s Rack Assist EPS (REPS) is designed for heavier vehicles to handle higher front-axle loads and optimize packaging space.
These systems are capable of steering mid-sized vehicles, all the way up to full size trucks.
System electronics are integrated with the steering rack housing and are designed to withstand the high temperatures and environmental exposure typical in the engine compartment.
In addition to saving valuable space in engine compartments, REPS’ unitized motor-controllers are easily fitted to different vehicle platforms. They reduce assembly costs and increase performance integrity compared to systems employing remote electronic controls.
Nexteer produced the world’s first 12-volt Rack Assist EPS in 2010 and has since captured 90% of North America’s full size truck market.
