After over a decade of collaboration with MEGA-Line, utilising their Gearchange Control Units (GCUs) and valve block assemblies connected to Xtrac dual acting reciprocal actuators, Xtrac and MEGA-Line have jointly developed an Integrated Valve Actuator (IVA) pneumatic rotary gearchange unit.
The P1254 has many significant advantages over conventional gearchange system which utilise separate valve blocks and actuators.

The Iva Offers The Following Benefits
- Air consumption reduced by up to 80% of conventional systems.
- Reduced overall vehicle weight due to integration of valve block, actuator and ratchet system into a single unit.
- Direct actuation results in faster shifting.
- Direct barrel actuation reduces part count within gearbox.
- Gearshift can be controlled by ECU – Separate GCU is not required.
- Lower servicing costs than conventional systems due to extended service intervals.
- Clockwise and Counter Clockwise rotation versions available.
- MEGA-Line GT μC Compressor.
- MEGA-Line compact shift paddles.
- Internal air feed option
