This new design of electrical R&P steering unit, the ZF-Servoelectric, satisfies the most demanding of economy requirements by delivering an 80 % energy saving relative to conventional power steering units. An electric motor operating independently of the engine is in charge of the servo function. This eliminates the need for an oil reservoir, a steering pump, hoses and hydraulic fluid.
The electric motor can be installed in a wide range of different locations, making it possible to adapt the ZF-Servolectric to suit a tremendous range of vehicle concepts extending from small cars up to light commercial vehicles.
