Horstman Ride Management – Active Suspension
Reduced vibration shock and increased vehicle speed over terrain
The ride management system provides a more stable platform with better tire-to-ground contact, reduced vibration shock and increased vehicle speed over the terrain.
Horstman provides a suite of adaptive damping solutions that range from driver-selectable settings, automated control of damping and up to full spring force.
This is implemented using sensors to detect suspension movement, vehicle turning, acceleration, and braking and combined with fast-acting valves and suspension elements and/or actuators.
Proven integration on 4×4 (5000-mile durability), and 8×8 vehicle platforms (medium truck and tactical), ranging through Commercial, Agricultural and Military applications.
Selectable and Remote Damping
A best value approach to allow the driver to select firmer or softer rides depending on the terrain and mission.
