IDEX 2015: ZF - Proven Technology with Reinforced Components

Trend-Setting Driveline Technology for Light Tracked Vehicles - LSG 1000 HD

New components in the mechanics, hydraulics, and electronics make the LSG 1000 HD a state-of-the-art transmission for the integration into powerpacks. Ideal for light, armored tracked vehicles.

Maximum Power Output and Safety

With the ZF-LSG 1000 HD Powershift Steering Transmission, light, front-driven tracked vehicles up to 25t move effectively at the highest level of power and safety.Numerous auxiliary power units and accessories are available upon request: from a hydrostatic fan drive system and oil cooler through to final drive and additional components. The modern transmission electronics are CAN-capable and communicate based on the SAE J1939 standard. The transmission can be shifted under load and features six forward and two reverse gears which can be shifted fully automatically. The large transmission-ratio range allows high speeds on the one hand and provides the vehicle with excellent climbing capabilities on the other.  An integrated lock-up torque converter improves the setting-off and acceleration behavior by hydrodynamically increasing the engine torque. The hydrostatic cross-drive steering transmission provides continuously variable, sensitive steering via a timing gear and allows both forwards and backwards steering in the same direction as well as pivot turning of the vehicle. The safety concept of the LSG 1000 HD powershift transmission ensures that the steering system shuts down automatically when the manual transmission is in the neutral position.
