Eaton Cummins Automated TransmissionEaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies on Tuesday said it has expanded the Endurant automated transmission portfolio to include a new dual Power Takeoff (PTO) version of the 12-speed model.

The new dual PTO option has two mounting locations: an 8-bolt bottom mount and a 4-bolt rear mount with a combined 95 horsepower capability. A single PTO model with an 8-bolt bottom mount location also is available.

Since the launch of the 12-speed overdrive model in late 2017, the Endurant portfolio has expanded to include an 11-speed direct-drive model with calibrations optimized to meet the needs of linehaul and regional fleets typically operating at lower cruise speeds and on flatter terrain.

All Endurant transmissions feature an internal electrical system routing that minimizes exposure and corrosion to wires and connectors for improved reliability; a smart prognostics feature provides clutch replacement notification to better plan maintenance scheduling; an industry-exclusive transmission fluid pressure sensor notifies drivers of low oil levels to provide burn-up warranty coverage; smooth and intuitive shift strategies that enhance the operator’s driving experience; predictive shifting using look-ahead technology to execute shift decisions that improve fuel efficiency and provide additional driver comfort; a maintenance-free 430 mm self-adjust clutch that requires no grease; an industry-leading 750,000-mile lube change interval in linehaul applications; areplaceable input shaft sleeve allows for affordable and quick repair, while competitive transmissions require a costly and time-consuming full teardown; and the capability for a maximum 510 horsepower and 1,850 ft.-lbs. of torque.

Endurant is available with IntelliConnect, a telematics capable system that provides near real-time monitoring of vehicle fault codes, prioritizes critical events and provides accurate and comprehensive action plans by technical experts at Eaton. The primary objective of IntelliConnect is to increase a fleet’s uptime by reducing unplanned downtime and providing quicker repair diagnostics through remote communication with a vehicle’s transmission.
