What Dose an Electronic Throttle Controller Do?

Up until the late 1980s, most cars had a fairly straightforward throttle control. You stepped on the accelerator pedal, the throttle opened, and air flowed into the engine, where it mixed with gasoline and burned. This burning gas powered the car’s wheels, getting you down the road. If you wanted to go faster, all you had to do was step down harder-- the throttle would open wider, giving the car more power.

But electronic throttle control, which is sometimes called drive-by wire system, uses electronic signals instead of mechanical to control the throttle. That meas that when you step on your car’s gas pedal, instead of opening the throttle, you’re activating an accelerator pedal module, which converts the pressure you put on the pedal into an electric signal. That signal is then sent to an electronic control unit, which takes your inputs into account, as well as outside variables, to open the throttle for optimum efficiency and performance.

With electronic throttle control, electrical signals, rather than manual pressure, carry messages from the gas pedal to the car’s throttle. The “drive-by-wire” system has surpassed the crude accelerator wire in commanding the engine control unit. Commands are performed by engine control unit, which electronically regulates the level of power output desired.

In theory, an electronic throttle controller sounds like and amazing alternative to traditional mechanical throttle control system. However, electronic throttle control system are not without problems. The most serious of these problems is response time. When using an electronic throttle control, throttle response time is considerably slower than it would be with mechanical throttle control. This can drastically increase the amount of time it takes for your vehicle to reach full power output, making your vehicle feel more sluggish, or seem less powerful, as well as slowing its rate of acceleration. This can be a problem if your car’s acceleration rate is already lower than you would like.

If you are always trying to push your car to limits and love cars with fast acceleration, a slow response time can be significant source of frustration, as it drastically increase your car’s acceleration time, making the entire car feel more sluggish. Luckily, there is a solution to this problem.

TROS Drive By Wire Accelerator makes it possible to resolve this natural dynamism, making your car much more reactive and lively. TROS Electronic throttle controller can be adjusted to suit your driving style and will not increment power output of your car but improve throttle response to match your personality.

Our Electronic throttle controller are vehicle specific and not generic/universal, in other words we do not have a “one size fits all”. Our units are specifically designed for different engines and different fuel systems. Select your vehicle brand, model and engine and find the best suitable model.
