Rotary haptic solutions
Our InTouch rotary haptic solutions contains a chamber filled with MRF, rollers, and a coil. The MRF changes its state from a liquid to a semisolid when a magnetic field is applied. While the MRF is liquid, the rollers can rotate uninhibited, allowing the InTouch to spin freely. By applying electricity to the coil, we create a magnetic field, which changes the MRFs viscosity and stops rollers’ rotation.
One device - infinite possibilities
By controlling the electricity’s duration and strength on the coil via software, we create our haptic force feedback patterns. The rotation of the device is detected via a magnetic sensor with a finer resolution than 0.1 degrees.

XeelTech brings our InTouch technology to serial production and is your partner for standardized programmable haptic feedback rotary encoders.
Steer by wire
The InTouch D99 brake is our solution for applications such as steer by wire, gaming and simulation, prosthetics, or exoskeletons.
Thanks to our MR technology, the adaptive INVENTUS control lever brings adaptive braking and thus haptic feedback to classic swivel motion devices. This provides an individualized adjustment of the control to various applications, e.g. ships and boats. In addition, advanced functions such as complete lockout of the lever or customized operating profiles provide additional safety and comfort.
The INVENTUS joystick combines two of our MR brakes to provide adaptive control of both the X and Y axes with just a single device through fully programmable haptic feedback. Thereby, the perceptible resistances along both axes can be finely adjusted. Our joystick technology thus makes the control of everything from gaming and simulation to industrial machines and vehicles even more intuitive and safe.
The INVENTUS MR throttle brings full control and adaptive operation to any handlebar-controlled vehicle through fully programmable haptic feedback. Our MR technology brakes the rotational movement of the hand for precise control. And while our current technology relies on a parallelly mounted MR brake connected to a timing belt, our team is already working on a fully integrated solution directly in the handlebar.
The INVENTUS thumbwheel is an extraordinary variant of our smart rotary encoders. Whether it’s a smartphone, camera, gaming hardware, or VR device – the small form factor provides tangible feedback and simplified operation in numerous application areas.
In Touch Disc
With a height of only 6 mm, the INVENTUS In Touch Disc is our shortest rotary haptic device.
Whether it’s a smartphone, camera, gaming hardware, or VR device – the small form factor provides tangible feedback and simplified operation in numerous application areas.
