We have developed a continuous cam phase variable mechanism wherein an electromagnetic clutis is utilized for controlling a helical mechanism “New Technology Variable Cam Phaser (NT-VCP)” for the first time in the world. NT-VCP is called “Electromagnetic Valve Timing Control (eVTC)”, carried Nissan's new “V” type six cylinders engine. NT-VCP has implemented an extensive control range and a fast response. As a result that engine was able to get excelled acceleration performance.
