Van Damme brings sound to the motorsport industry

Van Damme and Audiosteps team up to supply cables to automotive driving simulators

VDC Trading today announced that it is providing Van Damme cables to the motorsports industry where they are used in real time professional driving solutions.  These simulation tools accelerate product development and innovation across the motorsports and automotive industries by enabling designers and engineers to experience the full ‘experience’ and performance of the vehicle they are developing without having to build a prototype.

Simulators are vital to the motorsport and automotive industries, as they not only reduce time-to-market for new vehicles but they also ensure they are totally safe when finally on the road.

Naturally, sound also contributes to that as it is a fundamental indicator; it helps drivers to achieve total control over their car and makes passengers feel comfortable.  For this reason, during the development process, engineers and designers have to replicate acoustic conditions that exactly mimic the real ones.

Van Damme cables are integral to this process.  They help to perfectly reproduce the sound information that comes from the engine, road and environmental conditions surrounding the vehicle.

Recently, Van Damme’s German distributor, Audiosteps Commerce, supplied Van Damme Black Series 18×2.5mm Speaker POWER multicore cables to a business in Europe for several simulator projects.

Andre Masterati Freitag at Audiosteps commented: “Audiosteps regularly supplies a specific business with custom cables for projects in the automotive industry.  The most recent job was for a high-profile automotive client with an exciting plans for the future.  These organisations rely on Van Damme cables because they have been proven to be 100% robustly reliable and can be adapted for any particular situation.”

Herpreet Kaur Singh, commercial director at VDC Trading said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Andre and Christian at Audiosteps in providing our first-rate cables for such an interesting business.  We look forward to supporting them in further ventures in the automotive industry.  In today’s competitive business environment, it is very important to work with reliable partners with a range of expertise.”
