Why Pedal Commander Throttle Controller?
If you are looking to improve your overall driving enjoyment or reduce your eco-footprint, you need a Pedal Commander. Most newer vehicles are manufactured with Electronic Throttle Control (ETC). This means your acceleration is no longer powered with the old school throttle cable that gave you a linear relationship between your foot and the throttle body, but now everything is powered by electronics and your car computer (ECU). The electronic throttle does not provide the same performance as it creates a lag from your initial accelerator push.
Vehicles are changing every year, mostly because of the rate at which technology is developing. The systems that were once mechanically controlled are now controlled by the vehicle computer. One such new system is the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), known as drive-wire-wire, which is an automobile technology that electronically connects the accelerator pedal to the throttle, replacing a mechanical linkage. A typical drive-by-wire system has 3 major components: (1) an accelerator pedal model, (2) a powertrain/engine control system (PCM/ECM), and (3) a throttle valve that opens and closes by the electric motor. It also has several benefits however, it has its limitations.
Pedal Commander solves this problem. The Pedal Commander connects in-line with the ECT system at the Pedal Position Sensors and is designed to take the information at the PPS and compile it in a high-speed control circuit. It also slightly advances that number and sends it directly to the ECU. By sending the information to the computer this way, a couple of checks that the engine computer will make can be bypassed before sending the signal to open the throttle plate. This gives you the ability to eliminate the delay from your accelerator (gas pedal), allowing your engine to respond faster. As a result, your gas pedal becomes more sensitive for a sportier or an old school feel.
The Pedal Commander gives drivers full control of their gas pedal sensitivity. With 36 preset levels, the Pedal Commander has a setting for every driving style. You truly have the ability to make your vehicle response exactly how you want it when you want it.
