I-Shift software packages

Basic version (TP-BAS)
TP-BAS is the standard software package supplied with the I-Shift and includes the gearbox’s basic functions for allround driving.

I-Shift distribution gear changing software (TP-DIST)
TP-DIST adapts the gearbox’s function to the specific conditions in the distribution segment. The software package includes functions that aid manoeuvrability when starting off from standstill, in manoeuvring and when driving at low speed.

I-Shift construction gear changing software (TP-CON)
TP-CON adapts the gearbox’s function to the specific conditions in the construction segment. The software package includes functions that aid manoeuvrability when starting off from standstill, in manoeuvring and when driving at low speed. This software can also handle tougher road conditions.

I-Shift long haul gear changing software (TP-LONG)
TP-LONG includes intelligent functions that minimise fuel consumption. This software package is ideal for long-haul operations where strong emphasis is placed on fuel economy. This package includes the I-Roll function.

Heavy duty transport (TP-HD)
TP-HD optimises I-Shift for heavy duty transport with high gross combination weights (>85 tonnes). Regardless of the gross combination weight, the driver can always optimise drivability by selecting or deactivating the heavy duty mode, and activating the long haul mode. The functions in the software package also offer benefits for trucks hauling multiple trailers.
