Reinventing User Experience
Our game changing HAPTICORE controller unites all the benefits of a mechanical rotary with a freely programmable haptic device. Thereby it generates real, mechanical haptic feedback.
From now on, everything you do will be much more intuitive. With its products, XeelTech combines the visual, acoustic and haptic senses in a revolutionary way to ensure that your attention is where you need it.
Through a wide range of individual, haptic feedback of the HAPTICORE controller, you can feel which function is currently being performed without having to rely on visual displays. Providing different haptic patterns for different menus, the user can navigate through the system without being distracted from what he is actually doing. The result is a safer, faster and more convenient user experience.
The rotary can be mounted horizontally or vertically, giving you the chance to develop your product exactly how you need it to be designed. The mechanical mounting points of the stator and the surface of the rotary device can be customized towards your needs. The haptic feedback can be freely programmed in our own software.
Customers can configure the HAPTICORE controller according to their needs and wishes. Functions can be switched on and off (e.g. child lock) and the haptic feedback can also be set individually for every person. This configuration can be downloaded or synchronized between different divices.
Small and lightweight
The HAPTICORE control element is designed for efficient energy usage. With its low power consumption it is possible to operate the device fully on a recharcheable battery.
Minimal size, maximum possibilities: The HAPTICORE controller is small and robust while still reacting within a blink of an eye. The total measure is 26mm in length and 12mm in diameter. The total weight is about 12 grams.
For ensuring the highest quality standards, the system is tailored and tested towards your requirements – whether it’s millions of rotations, a wide temperature range, IP-ratings or any other combination of quality criteria.
Feel the difference
All haptic patterns can be adopted towards your needs through software, giving your product a unique and intuitive user experience, while the hardware stays the same. The following basic functions are just examples – you can easily program your own haptic patterns (using C).
You can set different amounts of „ripples“ matching your preferred force. It is also possible to combine different ripple-patterns to generate a truly unique haptic experience.
By choosing the clockwise or counter-clockwise mode, you can turn the HAPTICORE knob in one direction only. The other direction is locked whenever you try to turn it.
The barrier mode enables you to set a rotation rage to the left and right, for example limiting the rotation to +/- 90 degrees. Of course every other angle is also possible and can simply be set via software. In addition you can add “ripples” to the barrier as well.
The interstage mode is designed to be a comfort and safety feature where only a certain range of rotation is possible. Beyond that a barrier gives haptic feedback to ensure the user knows he is over the recommended limit. In increasing-force mode, the torque increases as the HAPTICORE knob is turned.

How it works
Our patented HAPTICORE input controllers are using a ball bearing, filled with MRF – a mixture of a carrier fluid and magnetizable carbonyl iron particles. By applying a magnetic field, the fluid is changing its viscosity within milliseconds. The change of viscosity leads to an increase or decrease of torque.
MRF actuators can be adjusted continuously. If a basic strength is desired, this can be accomplished easily and efficiently by a specific combination of permanent magnets and electromagnets.
Fast reaction times
Resistive forces can be reversibly adjusted and changed within milliseconds. This opens up completely new possibilities for influencing the damping behavior in real time and reacting to changed environmental conditions.
XeelTech GmbH combines the innovation power of MRF technology with know-how in industrialization and mass manufacturing, resulting in next generation haptics. The company is located in St. Anton im Montafon, Austria.
