CAN Actuator

Originally developed for Allison 1000/2000 transmissions, this next generation technology can be adapted for other OEM’s transmissions.The CAN Actuator receives J1939 CAN messages from a CAN shifter installed in the vehicle and rotates the Allison shift shaft to the requested position. The CAN Actuator is also equipped with PWM input to be used as a secondary shift strategy and I/O to be utilized as necessary depending on the application. 

The Curtiss-Wright Global Strip Switch Shifter, works in combination with the CAN Actuator in automatic transmissions for On- and Off-Highway vehicles. Available in standard design and also custom designs for OEM's.
