Traction Control: TwinLock™ Hydraulic Antiskid System
The TwinLock™ solution offers a unique anti-skid solution for all-wheel-drive machines. Machines equipped with the TwinLock™ motors and valves solution increase their off-road driving capability in low grip situations, bringing several benefits to the user:
- Higher machine productivity thanks to increased off-road capabilities
- The solution's excellent reactivity (torque is instantaneously transferred from the wheel with the lowest grip to the one with the highest)
- Maintenance is easy as the solution is 100% hydraulic
- Avoids damaging ground surfaces
The TwinLock™ solution transfers torque from the wheels that are slipping to the wheels with the greatest grip. It is the ideal compromise between a parallel circuit and a series circuit.
The system consists of following interacting components:
- Motors with TwinLock™ option
- TwinLock™ hydraulic valves:
- Hydraulic control – PR-TL valve
- Mechanical control – VDP valve
Applicable for all machines with at least three-wheel drive.
