Microprocessor Controlled Hydraulic Clutch
The HPTO®12W is a hydraulically applied clutch. Its friction plates operate in an oil (wet) environment. Its hydraulic design eliminates the need to adjust the clutch throughout its wear life. The VG Pump Drive has 2 pump pads available. The FX Pump Drive has 4 pump pads available.
The HPTO® microprocessor-based clutch controller eliminates the typical service problems that are associated with operator abuse. The patented start-up sequence brings the driven load smoothly up to engine speed automatically compensating for the power required, optimizing peak engine torque. This means the HPTO12W can start equipment with significant inertia or even under partially jammed conditions. The HPTO®12W package increases equipment reliability and profitability by preventing operator abuse. The controller is also SAE J1939 capable allowing it to connect into the machine’s CAN BUS system.
