As a technological leader for modern driveline technology, ZF guarantees tangible customer value. Noticeable fuel savings, a longer service life, and optimum shift comfort – those are the advantages of the currently most powerful powershift transmission on the rail vehicle driveline technology market: ZF-EcoLife Rail. It was developed based on the ZF-EcoLife bus transmission and adapted for railway traffic. The transmission is customtailored for Diesel Multiple Units with a net engine output torque of up to 2 500 Newtonmeter. The torque converter ensures smooth starting processes and optimal acceleration values. The six mechanical gears keep the engine in an economical speed range. The integrated retarder considerably reduces wear in the mechanical brake system. System safety is ensured by the “Failsafe Principle”.
