SHOXSDUAL2 - Semi-Active Shock Mitigation Systems

THE WORLD’S FIRST SEMI-ACTIVE MITIGATION SYSTEM IN ACTION

SHOXSDUAL2 is a shock mitigation system which utilizes real Semi-active suspension technology. Ride conditions are analyzed 1000 times per second and the seat’s time response to damping adjustments happens in as fast as 5 milliseconds. Continuously variable, the SHOXSDUAL2 semi-active mitigation system automatically compensates for occupant weight and automatically modifies the seat response to each and every wave, providing operators with the safest, smoothest ride.

SHOXSDUAL2 is the world’s first semi-active seat mitigation system in use, producing real results. Unlike manual damping adjustments which can increase the probability of injury, SHOXSDUAL2 automatically adjusts damping ratios to maximize shock attenuation for any occupant weight and impact severity. SHOXSDUAL2 does not compromise, giving operators the confidence to perform their duties in dangerous and unpredictable conditions more effectively and safely than ever before.

FOR THE SAFEST, SMOOTHEST RIDE AND LOWEST CUMULATIVE SHOCK STRESS

SHOXSDUAL2 is a shock mitigation system which utilizes real semi-active suspension technology. Semi-active suspensions, in response to a wave profile or road surface condition adjust isolator parameters to control seat or wheel movement with an onboard computer. Conversely with passive suspensions these parameters are fixed.

SHOXSDUAL2 uses a solenoid actuated valve to alter the flow of hydraulic fluid inside the damper, therefore changing the damping characteristics of the suspension. The solenoid is wired to an ECU which sends it commands depending on a control algorithm.
No other system utilizes real semi-active suspension technology. Ride conditions are sampled 1000 times per second. Damping ratios are precisely adjusted throughout the suspension stroke, making up to 200 changes per second.
Unlike passive dampers, SHOXSDUAL2 semi-active dampers are computer controlled and are the dominant element in attenuating shocks. This allows for uniquely soft spring rates which accommodate lighter occupants and enhances vibration damping while also providing un-matched bottoming protection for heavier occupants.
SHOXSDUAL2 does not compromise. SHOXSDUAL2 is the world’s first and only commercially available Semi-active seat mitigation system now in use, producing real results, providing operators with the safest, smoothest ride. Unlike manual damping adjustments which can increase the probability of injury, SHOXSDUAL2 automatically adjusts damping ratios to maximize shock attenuation for any occupant weight; any impact severity.
