  4. The shift actuator system can be mounted or direct to allow for flexibility in supporting a multitude of vehicles.

Features of the Orscheln Electronic Shift Actuator System

  1. Integrated motor control: The electronic motor actuator features an integrated motor control. This simplifies the electrical connections; DC power and digital communications signal are the only wires that need to be connected. The integrated motor controller increases the actuator reliability by eliminating motor feedback wire connections.
  2. Hall-Effect Sensor: The motor feedback uses a Hall-Effect Sensor. This increases the actuator reliability due to the non-contact technology of the feedback sensor. Next, Orscheln offers a “high output” actuator motor design. It also has a linear shaft output. This allows the actuator to be set up for either a direct connection or a remote connection via a control cable. The Hall-Effect sensor allows for accurate feedback.
  3. Versatile: Our actuator can be located anywhere and is suitable for most heavy duty applications.
