Electronic Control Transmission ECT

The Electronic Control Transmission is an automatic transmission which uses modern electronic control technologies to control the transmission. The transmission itself, except for the valve body and speed sensor, is virtually the same as a full hydraulically controlled transmission, but it also consists of electronic parts, sensors, an electronic control unit and actuators.

The electronic sensors monitor the speed of the vehicle, gear position selection and throttle opening, sending this information to the ECU. The ECU then controls the operation of the clutches and brakes based on this data and controls the timing of shift points and torque converter lock-up.
