ATrAct™ Gear Control Unit
Automated transmission actuation system for next generation transmission
The ATrAct™ Gear Control Unit (GCU) is a top mounted unit that comprises of a full set of extremely compact gear actuators including shift forks, working directly on each gear in the transmission.
The ECU (Electronic Control Unit), as well as all sensors and connectors are included as a part of the unit, making it a highly integrated, efficient, compact and cost optimized solution.
Features & benefits
- Four pneumatic gearshift actuators for synchronized, un-synchronized and planetary gears with integrated position sensors and high performance control valves to obtain optimized shift speed and accuracy
- Extremely compact and includes a highly efficient shift mechanism with a patented unique interlock solution
- The system has a unique set-up with electronics, sensors, connectors and valve interfaces as a fully integrated unit based on lead frame and cluster design
