Allison Transmission’s 5th Generation electronic controls, rolled out in 2013 to all OEM customers, have been designed to match the new generation of global vehicle electrical-electronic architectures and for easy integration during the vehicle assembly process. These innovative electronic controls are flexible, providing optimal shift strategies for industry-leading productivity and efficiency, while still addressing varying OEM and operator requirements.
5th Generation controls feature enhanced programming and a brand new bump lever selector design. Allison engineers also focused on upgrading TCM hardware and software for faster, more precise processing capabilities.
Embedded in the 5th Generation control module is a new inclinometer, which enhances vehicle productivity and efficiency in stop-start operations. The inclinometer’s precision and responsiveness improve Load Based Shift Scheduling (LBSS) performance as the automatic selection between economy and performance shift schedules is faster and more accurate, resulting in further reductions in fuel consumption.
