Advanced Productivity Electronic Control System (APECS)
Is a key contributor to improved speed shift performance and quality in the D10T2. The operator will notice enhanced comfort during speed shifting resulting in an increased level of operator productivity. Most importantly, the improved shift quality provided by APECS is a key enabler to obtaining the full benefits of Enhanced Autoshift (EAS).
Enhanced Autoshift (EAS)
A standard feature for the D10T2 is EAS. EAS improves fuel efficiency and productivity by automatically selecting the optimal gear and engine speed combination based upon power train load and desired ground speed. This feature functions similar to an automatic transmission. EAS functionality combined with the increased power in reverse will enhance productivity when backing up on slopes.
This convenience feature helps reduce operator work load during operation. Bi-directional shift allows the operator, by just making a directional change, to automatically select the desired forward and reverse gears or the desired forward and reverse speeds when EAS is activated.
This feature adds value by enhancing safety and productivity during the dozing cycle. When not in EAS mode, Auto downshift can be used to automatically downshift the transmission when significant load increases are detected, but this feature will not automatically up-shift when load is reduced. Auto downshift provides optimal performance with minimal operator effort. Operator may override these automatic shift features at any time.
