MANUAL ACCELERATOR
(COD. HT-TOUCH EVO)
COD. COMMUNITY: 25.04 - 25.06

VIDEO | GALLERY | REQUEST INFO | SHARE

The revolutionary design of the HT-TOUCH EVO, the first thumb-operated driver acceleration system, takes advantage of the high sensitivity of the finger on which it is applied. The pressure applied to the lever of the device, using the steering wheel, end of the brake lever or index finger as a counterweight, ensures gradual acceleration in any driving condition. Through a variation in the magnetic field, amplified by an electronic control unit interfaced with the vehicle system, the device allows you to accelerate. The variation of the magnetic field, generated by the non-mechanical controller, significantly increases the lifetime of the device.
Pressing a button, HT-TOUCH EVO switches on the electronic part of the device after ignition. The latter has been designed to interface with the electronic control units of different vehicles without altering any of the functional characteristics, e.g. Cruise Control or Kick Down. To better manage the Touch during the learning stage and in the most complex driving situations, the Parking function can be activated with the help of a switch to reduce acceleration by about 50%, thereby increasing the capacity of the device. When the device is not in use or when the vehicle is used by a driver with no mobility restrictions, the control can be disabled by simply removing the connector from the junction box.
HT-TOUCH EVO was successfully patented as a result of its innovative, functional and technical features, making it an even more distinctive and exclusive product. Similarly to all our acceleration systems, the device can be removed from one vehicle and used on a new one.
