Emergency Clutch Release (ECR)

emergency clutch release

Approved by the ACO

The Emergency Clutch Release is designed to work as a standalone installation to enable actuation of a vehicle clutch. It has been approved by FIA and ACO for use in 2015 LMP vehicles as an emergency neutral device.

The unit requires an air supply and a power supply of 9-14v. It will work with either an air supply from an existing air source on the car such as a pneumatic gear shift compressor or can run from a standalone high pressure reservoir. Installation is by plumbing the unit in line with the existing hydraulic clutch line. The driver retains full control over the clutch with the standard clutch pedal. On activation, the ECR applies pressure to the clutch slave cylinder for as long as power is supplied to the unit. It is normally operated with a latching switch working from a 9V PP3 battery. Once power is removed, the unit removes pressure and returns clutch control to the driver.

Due to the standalone nature of the unit it does not influence normal clutch operation. It is supplied with an AP master cylinder. The size of cylinder is calculated based on the release load and travel of the clutch fitted to the car. This needs to be calculated and specified by Shiftec.
