CDS, Cardan drive shafts – This is a hydraulic system unit, usually installed on trucks and tractors. Its main function – selection of torque from the motor and its subsequent transfer to attachments, towing devices and other types of mechanisms.
Design features and CDS operation principle
The design of the power take-off shaft of a truck or tractor provides for a key assembly – planetary gearbox, drive mechanism handle and gear change gearbox.
The principle of operation of such equipment is very simple. The shaft lever is moved by the tractor driver to the engagement position. Due to this, the drum tape on the gear is tightened, and on the operator's drum – released, causing the shaft to rotate. To turn off this option, just move the handle to the opposite position.
Power take-off mechanism: 4 main types
There are several varieties of CDS, depending on the type of transport in which it is applicable:
- Dependent – simultaneously starts with the clutch and functions while driving. The maximum number of revolutions is achieved at an equal speed without braking and acceleration. Disabled when the vehicle stops.
- Independent – can work after the machine is stopped, because it is not connected to the clutch. The easiest CDS to use.
- Synchronous – starts when the power unit is activated. The frequency of its rotation is directly related to the speed of the machine.
- Non-synchronous – works on equipment that is not moving. Contribute to the stable operation of the executive equipment.
Based on the location in the tractor, power take-off mechanisms distinguish between rear, front and side. They can also be placed on the gearbox itself or transfer case.
