Zf 9hp transmission

The meaning of «zf 9hp transmission»

9HP is ZF Friedrichshafen AG's trademark name for its nine-speed automatic transmission models (9-speed transmission with Hydraulic converter and Planetary gearsets) for transverse engine applications, designed by ZF's subsidiary in Saarbrücken and built in Gray Court, South Carolina.[1] It is used in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles.

Land Rover and Jeep demonstrated the world's first nine-speed automatic transmissions for passenger cars at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.[2] The 2014 Jeep Cherokee featured the world's first nine-speed automatic transmission for a passenger vehicle to market.

The 9HP is only 0.24 inches (6mm) longer than, and weighs 16.5 lbs (7.5 kg) less than, the outgoing six-speed transmission. The compact packaging is achieved by using a number of innovative design features: a new compact hydraulic vane-type pump, two patented dog clutches, which replace bulkier conventional clutch packs, and a nested gear set.[2] ZF claims that it is able to save an average of 16% in fuel compared with current 6-speed automatic transmissions. The gear ratio spread is 9.8085:1. The transmission has a torque range between 280 and 480 Nm.[1]

These ordinates are positioned on the abscissa in strict accordance with the proportions of the sun gears' teeth numbers relative to those of their rings. Consequently, the output ratios on the ordinate C4 (carrier of the last planetary gearset RS4) follows closely to those of the actual transmission. Note that elements A and F are labelled interchanged (cf. legend below).

▶️ Interactive Nomogram This interactive nomogram is a real geometric calculator exactly representing the rotational speeds of the transmission's 3x4 = 12 internal shafts for each of its 9 ratios (+ reverse), grouped according to their 5 permanent coupling on 4 joint ordinates and 3 independent ordinates. These ordinates are positioned on the abscissa in strict accordance with the proportions of the sun gears' teeth numbers relative to those of their rings. Consequently, the output ratios on the 6th ordinate (carrier of the fourth planetary gearset) follows closely those of the actual transmission. This advantageous geometric construction sets us free from Willis' famous and tedious formula, because all calculations are exclusively determined by lengths ratios, respectively teeth numbers on the abscissa for the 4 epicyclic ratios, and of rotational speeds on the 6th ordinate for the 10 gear ratios.
