Eaton has increased the horsepower and gross vehicle weight ratings for the company’s medium-duty Procision 7-speed transmissions. The company announced the expanded capabilities at the NTEA's Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

The new ratings were added to expand the market of potential customers and increase compatibility with a greater number of diesel engines. Horsepower ratings have been increased to 300 horsepower, with maximum GVW ratings increasing to 35,000 pounds on air brake-equipped vehicles and 33,000 pounds on Park Pawl-equipped vehicles.

The Procision is a dual-clutch transmission designed specifically for Class 6 and 7 commercial vehicles. By combining the efficiency of a manual transmission with the smooth shifting of an automatic transmission, Procision offers improvements in safety and low-speed maneuverability when compared to torque converter automatic transmission technology, according to Eaton.

“By extending the horsepower and GVW ratings on Procision, Eaton is providing more customers with the opportunity to spec this transmission to help them achieve better fuel economy and improve driver confidence across applications,” said Jeff Walker, product director, heavy-duty/medium-duty/hybrid transmissions, Eaton’s Vehicle Group. “Fleets that have specified and are running Procision today have seen the benefits, and today’s announcement broadens the range of applications for Procision.”

Eaton ups ratings for Procision AMT

Fleet Owner  /  March 14, 2017

The Procision automated mechanical transmission (AMT) for medium-duty Class 6 and 7 applications has expanded its application coverage with increased horsepower and GVW ratings, according to Eaton Corp.   Maximum horsepower is now 300 HP, up from 260 HP, and maximum GVW ratings have been boosted to 35,000 lbs. for air-braked trucks and 33,000 lbs. for those equipped with Eaton’s Park Pawl.

The 7-speed Procision is the only Class 6/7 AMT using dual clutch technology, which provides the fuel economy of a manual transmission with the smooth shifting of an automatic transmission, according to Eaton.  It was specifically designed for the medium-duty truck and bus markets as an alternative to torque converter automatic transmissions.

“By extending the horsepower and GVW ratings on Procision, Eaton is providing more customers with the opportunity to spec this transmission to help them achieve better fuel economy and improve driver confidence across applications,” said Jeff Walker, product director, heavy-duty/medium-duty/hybrid transmissions, Eaton’s Vehicle Group. “Fleets that have specified and are running Procision today have seen the benefits, and today’s announcement broadens the range of applications for Procision.”
