Overview introduction

What is a XAP Actuator?

XAP is the world leader in electromagnetic actuators for sequential gearboxes. Our technology is the only one proven to rival pneumatic and hydraulic solutions. XAP’s electromagnetic actuators are reliable, consistent and do not need maintenance.

It is a monobloc solution unlike hydraulic and pneumatic solutions which need numerous elements such as pump (air compressor), an accumulator (air tank), electronic valve assembly, air filters, radiators and various hoses.

The electrical consumption of XAP actuators is low.  It is equivalent to a 10 W lamp for a gear change of 40 ms every two second. Our electromagnetic actuators technology, made from permanent magnets, equips over 300 competition vehicles.
