Sigma Integrale - DK2 3 Actuator Kit Review By The SRG

Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage presents his review of the DK2 3 Actuator Kit by Sigma Intégrale.

US-based Sigma Intégrale is a technology, research, and development company for the automotive and truck markets. The professional DK-2 motion system is a motion solution for sim-racing enthusiasts, racing professionals, and researchers.

The DK2 3DOF system is mechanically and electrically engineered around special software algorithms to provide the most realistic and representative motion feedback. All the elevation changes, vehicle movements, surface change,s, and gear shifts, are captured and reproduced within 2” (50mm) of the available mechanical stroke.

The Sigma Intégrale DK2 3DOF Motion System is available via the official website for $4,095.00 + shipping.
