Tyco’s Sensor Integrated Module for Dual Clutch Transmission

Tyco Electronics has introduced the Drive Mode and Speed Sensor module. This module will be used for dual clutch transmission.

Tyco Drive Mode and Speed Sensor Module

Tyco Electronics has collaborated with a leading automotive company for developing a sensor integrated module that detects different wheel speeds and the drive mode.

This sensor module in this particular application is integrated and positioned inside the transmission. The system safety requirements render it mandatory to include fully redundant drive signals. The sensor module incorporates two speed sensors that are hall-based and the permanentmagnetic – linear – contact-less-displacement (PLCD) technology. This technology is suited for transmission generations, such as power shift/dual clutch or automatic transmissions and automatic manual gearboxes.

Tyco Electronics, a specialist in position, speed, temperature, travel, and angle type of non-contact sensors, provides innovative product solutions and technologies for automotive applications such as steering, torque, fuel level management, brake, chassis, and so on.

The legal requirements for the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) and fuel mandate the requisite optimizations as well as new powertrain concepts. To achieve economic targets, various automobile makers have created and implemented double clutch transmissions. The system requirements demand the detection of the drive mode lever position. The system also requires the determination of the different gear speeds related to the two separate clutches, which act as controlling variables.
