Solenoid Valves for Dual Clutch Technology

Solenoid Valves for DCT (Dual Clutch Technology)
Evolution of drivetrain transmission

A DRIVETRAIN is made up of a combination of parts in a vehicle including:

Transmission
Wheels
Driveshaft
Axels

The  drivetrain shifts the power from the
vehicle’s engine to the wheels
propelling the vehicle forward

Up until recently, the most
common transmissions in
automotive vehicles were
manual and automatic

Introducing
DCT

Dual Clutch Technology
came to prominence in
the 1980’s

DCT differs from manual and automatic
transmissions in that it has two transmissions –
one for even-numbered gears
and one for odd-numbered gears

DCT has several advantages over alternative transmissions:

Quicker
to shift
gears

Improved
driver
experience

Improved
fuel
efficiency

Solenoid valves
are a critical
Component of DCT

The solenoid valve is responsible for
controlling the fingers and synchronizers 
for changing gears and controlling the
engagement and disengagement of the
clutch pack
