Automatic Transmission

TraXon

Light. Strong. Intelligent.

Comfort and reduced fuel consumption, less weight and more performance, a longer service life and less maintenance – with the TraXon automated transmission system we are on our way towards achieving a new standard of efficiency.

Advantages

  • High torque range: DD up to 2,800 Nm, OD up to 3,400 Nm
  • Less fuel consumption thanks to maximum transmission spacing
  • Less transmission noise
  • Control electronics with many intelligent additional features
  • Clutch perfectly adapted to the transmission system

Product Details

The answer to increasing fuel prices and more stringent environmental regulations

A compact, robust and versatile basic transmission with the highest efficiency of its class is at the core of the innovation. The transmission can transmit torques considerably higher than 3,000 Nm.

As a transmission platform featuring 12 or 16 forward gears, TraXon is based on a modular design concept and prepared for hybridization. The concept enables both electric vehicle launch and boosting of the diesel engine. Recuperated braking energy can be used to power large auxiliaries such as cooling systems.
The dual-clutch module helps prevent tractive force and speed losses during shifting. This reduces engine speeds and fuel consumption.

The wear-free Intarder provides additional safety, since it reduces the load on the service brakes with up to 4,000 Nm of braking torque.

Specially developed single and twin plate clutches cover all applications, allowing the TraXon transmission system to achieve its full performance.
ConAct replaces the conventional clutch actuation system with a concentric, pneumatic release cylinder. The system automatically determines the optimal release position; the vehicle electronics system smoothly controls the actuation process. This eliminates the risk of a clutch overload caused by the driver.

PreVision GPS is the ideal combination of transmission and GPS. This system makes it possible to factor in uphill and downhill gradients in advance for the selection of shift points.

The comprehensive ZF PTO range is available for the transmission system.
