The GP1R Mini Steering Wheel complements your equipment’s original steering
system with a smaller steering wheel. The system is comprised of two units: the
armrest-mounted steering wheel with built-in electronic steering and a hydraulic
valve installed parallel to the equipment’s steering orbital. The GP1R is quite useful
when used on equipment which is quite frequently steered, like forklifts, lawn mowers and tractors, and is used to ease strain on the driver’s shoulders and arms.
With the GP1R’s adjustable steering sensitivity, the driver can customize steering
with a personal sensitivity level.

1.2 Operating an installed
and configured GP1R
To activate the GP1R, hold in the activation button approx. one second. The activation indicator will then beep and light
up. Inactivate by pressing the activation
button again and the system is inactivated immediately.
2. Installation
1.3 Summary of GP1R’s
installation and configuration
1.
Mount the GP1R to the chair and
then install the wheel and pilot
valve hydraulically and electrically.
2.
Select the language on start-up.
(See section 3.1 to change language.)
3.
The GP1R mini steering wheel must never be active while
driving longer distances.
Activate GP1R steering by holding
down the activation button for approx. one second. Make sure the
GP1R steers in the correct direction.
Otherwise switch the direction of
the DIN (Hirshman) contact on the
directional control valve.
4.
Follow the instructions in section 4.1
to set the start level.
5.
Never start a vehicle or mini
steering system without ALL
hydraulic and electronic systems correctly installed.
Follow the instructions in section 4.2
for ”Measure cylinder”.
The GP1R mini steering wheel is now
ready for use!
2.1 Electrical installation
Assembly instructions are not adapted
to any specific equipment or manufacture. The following is a general overview
for the electrical installation of the GP1R
mini steering wheel.
Make sure that all wires are stripped
accordingly and that there is no risk of
the wires getting jammed in foldable
armrests, doors or hatches.
Finish assembly by connecting the
9-30V supply voltage to the brown
wire. The wire must be protected by a
5 A fuse and not exceed 3 meters.
Wire thickness must be at least 2x1
mm. The white wire is grounded to
the equipment chassis. The wire must
not exceed 3 meters. (For electric
trucks an insulated converter should
be used).

?
The GP1R must never be used while
in transport mode.
The activation signal can
be used to prevent this.
The GP1R mini steering wheel has a user interface consisting of a display and three
buttons. These are used during the initial system setup and therefore hidden from view
during normal operation.

To exit the menu, choose Return.
While turning the steering wheel slowly,
a default signal is sent via the pilot valve
to the vehicle’s steering wheel. This signal is called the start level.
If the start level is sufficient, the vehicle’s
wheels will now begin to move at their
lowest velocity.

If start level is too high, then a small turn of the
GP1R makes the vehicle’s wheels start with a jerk.

the steering wheels movement.

Make sure that the vehicle’s steering wheel is in its middle position, that is with approx. the same
distance in both directions.
Select Start level in the main
menu. A warning will be shown that
the system will begin self-operation.
To avoid personal injury or
equipment damage, make
sure that the equipment’s
wheel area is not obstructed!
In the following menus, the GP1R
itself may be used to increase or
decrease levels. If a level is too
high, then the vehicle’s steering
wheel will begin turning immediately after pressing . Be prepared
to decrease the level.
Select Yes with

4.2 Measure cylinder
Tip:
» If the vehicle’s wheels reach their
final position during the setup, but
more adjustment is necessary,
quit with , exit the menu and
turn the steering wheel back to
the middle position again.
» The best way to correctly setup
the start level is by beginning at a
low value and then slowly increasing until the wheels begin to
move (very slowly).
(1).
During ”Measure cylinder” the steering
cylinder is calibrated. If not done correctly, the system may not function correctly in both directions or the number of
steering revolutions may not correspond
with the setup. Therefore it is important that the installation technician is observant and marks the three
steering wheel positions with the
precisely when they occur according
to the following description.
The related steps in this process (1, 2,
3) are shown on the GP1R display.
(2).
Important!
» Because GP1R ”Measure cylinder”
is dependent on the Start Level,
the Start Level must be setup
before ”Measure cylinder”.
to
Increase the level slowly until the
wheels begin to move.
Press
to quit and save.
» If the Start level is changed after
”Measure cylinder”, then a new
”Measure cylinder” must be done.
» To adjust levels the system must
be turned ON with the activation
button.
» The equipment’s wheels should be
jacked up to achieve best results.

to continue.
The wheels will begin to steer themafter the wheels
selves. Press
have reached their first final position (1).
The wheels will first pause, then
steer in the opposite direction.
Again, press
when the wheels
reach the final position (2).
After the last cycle has run, press
when the wheels reach the final
position (3).
The calibration is now completed.
Exit with Return. Check that the
GP1R makes the same number
of revolutions in both directions
and that this corresponds to the
vehicle’s wheel position.
The GP1R’s default is four revolutions
from full right to full left position. If you
would like to change this, continue to the
next section ”4.3 Wheel revolutions”.
If you get an equal number of revolutions in both directions, then ”Measure
cylinder” is completed.
If this is not the case, repeat the ”Measure cylinder” from step 1.
!
4.3 Wheel revolutions
Wheel revolutions is measured as
the number of revolutions or turns
of the steering wheel, which is necessary to move the vehicle’s wheels from full right to full left position.
The default setting is four revolutions
(40). This means that it takes four turns
of the GP1R to move the vehicle’s wheels
from full right to the full left position.
See it as the GP1R’s ”sensitivity”.
4.4 Change direction
The ”Change direction” setup means that
the direction of the mini steering wheel
can be changed if the directional control
valve is connected incorrectly. However,
it is advised to switch the direction of the
DIN (Hirshman) contact instead, so that
in the case of a reset of the preferences, the system will steer in the correct
direction.
The GP1R can, as with the other SVAB GP units, recognize many system errors. When
an error is registered, a four-digit code is displayed.
System error
The system has two microprocessors which monitor one another. Therefore many different
errors can be detected.

4.6 Pump start signal
Pump start signal is an extra output for
vehicles that require an activation signal to start a hydraulic pump, primarily
for electrical vehicles where the pump
only works while the vehicle is active.

4.5 Activation signal
Activation signal is an optional extra
output that is active when the system
is in use, often used to turn on and off a
warning light or to restrict the vehicle’s
