Dana Holding updates technology to support the Spicer central tire inflation system (CTIS), optimizing the performance of lower-flow CTIS applications for smaller government defense and vocational vehicles with a mechatronic control unit (MCU) option. This technology identifies and reacts to tire inflation issues by enabling individual wheel control. The MCU is an integrated unit that includes electronic, computer, and mechanical engineering for improved reliability, a smaller footprint, reduced weight, and less wiring complexity. Spicer CTISs with MCU are engineered for ground mobility vehicles, transportable light strike vehicles, and high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles. CTIS allows operators to adjust tire pressure to the optimum footprint from inside the cab to free a stuck vehicle or take on grades and other extreme conditions.
