Heusinkveld MagShift is a large, GT-style sequential shifter packed with extra features. The compact base-unit houses the innovative magnetic shift system which simulates the feel of an actual gear clicking into place.
Heusinkveld Magshift with SmartControl
With Heusinkveld SmartControl you have the option to expand the outputs of the lever and the 3 extra buttons to a total of 10 fully customizable outputs. You can configure and customize the outputs using the easy-to-use editor in SmartControl.
For every single input you can configure a primary and secondary output. An output can be a selectable joystick button or any keyboard keystroke (including modifier keys such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt etcetera).
Mounting Heusinkveld Magshift
Every MagShift comes with a U-shaped mounting bracket which makes mounting the shifter to your simulator super easy.
The U-brackets mounts to your simulator with just 2 bolts, ensuring a narrow profile of the overall installation. The MagShift is then attached to the bracket.
When mounted onto aluminium profiles, the MagShift only requires a single profile slot for mounting.
Mounting adjustments & dimensions
The mounting bracket allows for several adjustments to fine-tune the position of your MagShift.
Yaw adjustment: by rotating the U-bracket relative to the mounting platform.
Height adjustment: by choosing any of the 3 horizontal rows of mounting holes in the U-bracket.
Tilt adjustment: by choosing any diagonal combination of the mounting holes in the U-bracket.
The height of the MagShift (from the bottom of the mounting bracket to the top of the lever) is as follows.
36,2 cm (14,25 in) when installed in the lowest position.
37,7 cm (14,84 in) when installed in the highest position.
The full mounting dimensions for MagShift can be seen here (all dimensions in mm).
Mounting materials are supplied in order to attach the MagShift to most common simulator platforms. A selection of bolts (2 lenghts) and nuts (flange nuts and guided I-type slot 8 T-nuts) are included in the package. This makes installing the MagShift, especially onto aluminium profiles, super easy.
The magnetic shift system is 3-way adjustable. The overall force, upshift force and downshift force can all be set individually. This for example allows you to set a firm upshift and soft downshift if you wish to do so. At the firmest setting you’ll be able to simulate the forces as experienced in real race cars.
Sensors & Electronics
Opto-electronic sensors are used to detect shifts. This means that there is no wear on electronic components, ensuring reliable operation for years to come. The system is plug-and-play, after connecting MagShift via USB you can immediately assign functions in your favorite simulator software.
Mini button box
Be in control with the 3 extra buttons in the base of the MagShift. Buttons can be assigned to any available function in your favourite simulator software.
Extra functions can be unlocked when you install Heusinkveld SmartControl software. With SmartControl, you can set up to 10 fully customizable outputs using the lever and the 3 buttons. You can trigger multiple outputs simultaneously, delayed or independently from a single input.
