Taxi step motors power the actuators used in a wide range of taxi side steps. Electronic side steps reduce the distance a taxi passenger needs to step up to access a taller vehicle. They are ideal for use in taxi applications because they fold neatly away when not in use. The main benefit is providing a pleasant experience for passengers and people with mobility issues.
The nature of a taxi step means that the actuator needs to be underslung on a vehicle. This also means they are subject to the very worst of road conditions. The actuator is exposed to water, mud and road debris. It therefore needs to be durable to ensure total reliability every single time the step is deployed
Parvalux has a vast amount of experience in designing reliable and durable taxi step motors for actuators. We can supply a compact geared motor unit that offers excellent reliability, quiet operation and enough torque to perform the toughest tasks with ease.
We’ll work with you to design and build a drive system that perfectly suits your application. Our design team is also fluent in the latest SolidWorks 3D CAD software.
Parvalux motors and gearboxes are also available through the global maxon distribution network. Your local maxon office can be found here.
