Electrically-assisted Gearshift System
The Zytek EGS (Electrically-assisted Gearshift System) is unique as
the only high-level advanced gearshift system which is purely
Most commercially available automatic and semi-automatic gearshift
systems used in motor racing applications are based on either hydraulic
or pneumatic power sources. The Zytek EGS has been specifically
developed to avoid the installation complexity, maintenance requirements,
and weight associated with pneumatics or hydraulics.
The EGS is capable of individual gearshifts in 25 milliseconds, and up to
5 downshifts in less than a second. Additionally, the precise control of the
electric actuators results in very little wear on the gear selector mechanism
and dog rings, which extends gearbox life, improves reliability and shift
accuracy. Gear ratios are set and stored in Non Volatile memory for
downshift over-rev protection of the engine.
