State-of-the-art Multi-protocol Technology
Perfect for any vehicle – Analogue, PWM and SENT compatible
The multi-protocol technology developed by DTE Systems can optimise up to 4 channels in real time. The PedalBox drastically improves the standard pre-programmed accelerator characteristics of the manufacturer. Turbo Lag and lethargic Gearbox responses is all but eliminated. The driver gets a vehicle upgrade that is sportier and offer more dynamic response from the engine. Thus, there are no more hesitation moments.
How does the PedalBox work?
Driving pleasure with the right attitude whatever the the driving situation
Modern systems typically suffer from excessive signal and software delay, which is where the PedalBox steps in and is able to unlock the vehicle’s full potential.
What exactly does the PedalBox offer?
The “Throttle Response” curve shows the speed at which an engine responds to the driver’s pressing of the accelerator. Poor response is clearly evident, especially under acceleration.
The curves illustrate how quickly the vehicle responds to the accelerator pedal movement. It’s not about the power that a vehicle has, but how long it takes to release it. Put in another way, how quickly does the vehicle respond to driver input via the throttle pedal.
Even in City mode, the response of the vehicle is clearly improved. At the push of a button, two additional programs are available to the driver: Sport and Sport +. The OFF curve depicts the pre-programmed characteristic curve of the manufacturer. Here the PedalBox is switched off and the vehicle is then in the standard throttle tune.
3 selectable driving modes with 7 optimisation levels each
DTE Systems gives you the freedom to optimise
The PedalBox and PedalBox + provides a choice of three different fully customisable driving modes: City, Sport and Sport +. There are a total of 21 settings that offers optimisation for your specific needs and driving style.
CITY: An improved response especially suitable for urban and bumper to bumper traffic conditions
SPORT: The engine responds more spontaneously for a more dynamic driving experience once the road opens up
SPORT +: An optimal throttle response in the entire rev range suitable for open-road overtaking, towing heavy loads, 4×4 driving and, last but not least, our weekend track racing fraternity.
White: The PedalBox is OFF and the vehicle is in standard production mode
Mode Optimisation: Within each driving program, the response can easily be increased using the (+/_) buttons by up to three further levels (red) or reduced by up to three levels (green) from the middle of the range setting.
Unique adaptation and calibration
Individual individual adaptation and calibration for your specific vehicle in three easy steps
- Install the PedalBox and turn the key to ignition only
