Clutch-by-Wire

Revolution from ZF

The clutch-by-wire system can even be used with manual transmissions to enable the coasting function or hybridization. These features can contribute to lower fuel consumption and emission levels.

Advantages

  • Coasting function helps reduce fuel consumption and emission levels
  • Hybridization of manual transmission possible
  • Upgrading the manual driveline with possible functions, such as
    • Emergency brake assist
    • Traffic jam assist
  • Optimized clutch pedal forces, as there is no longer a mechanical connection between the diaphragm spring and actuation system
  • Easy integration of clutch-by-wire actuator into an existing manual driveline
