Belt drive EPS systems by ZF, offer premium performance power steering solution for C segment vehicles through to full size trucks with up to 18kN rack load. The technology provides CO₂ reduction and fuel economy (compared to hydraulic powered steering) as well as high-availability architectures to support automated driving features.

The Belt Drive System features a fully integrated steering gear with built-in packaging flexibility and option to mount either inboard or outboard configurations.

  • Helps to ensure continuation of operation after failures by adding redundant hardware and software features in line with growth of ADAS and Automated Driving (AD)
  • Hardware redundancy of important elements of the Electrical Power Pack (EPP) such as: torque and motor position sensors, motor winding and driver stage - configurable to meet application needs
  • Helps to reduce occurrence of sudden loss of assist, offering improvements in system availability compared to conventional EPS products (down to 1FIT)
