Electronically Adaptive Transfer Case, Single Actuator Power Transfer System for Four Wheel Drive 973234
New Venture Gear developed an innovative torque transfer system that simplifies transfer case design. An external single actuator controls an automatic, dual-gear ratio transfer case. This single actuator design provides torque transfer to the front axle when it meets certain conditions. It makes shifting to a different gear ratio possible without the use of an additional actuator or mechanical lever.
