ELocker locking differential

The Eaton ELocker is an electronic, selectable differential designed for drivers that need traction on-demand. At the flip of a dash switch, drivers can go from open to 100-percent locked. A second flip of the switch deactivates the unit to resume normal driving. The ELocker is the most reliable on-demand differential, featuring selectable operation and net-forged gears for added strength.

Core features

  • Driver selectable operation - full axle lock upon activation
  • Net-forged gears for added strength
  • Works in forward and reverse
  • Front and rear axle applications

On-demand traction

While driving under normal conditions, the ELocker electric locking differential performs as an open differential. If an obstacle is encountered – a rocky trail, muddy ditch or other challenge – the driver turns on a dash switch to activate the unit. The electromagnetic mechanism then locks, capturing 100% of the available torque and sending it equally to both wheels. A second flip of the switch deactivates the unit to resume normal driving.

EV Applications

Easy, push button operation, extremely high torque capacity, and compact designs (including for front wheel drive applications) make the ELocker a natural choice for an EV which needs full axle lock for obstacles and low-traction conditions. It can be easily integrated into the vehicle, with manual control and ECU logic (auto-locking) operation.

Four pinion gear design

The ELocker electric locking differential is designed for high-performance applications including off-roading, trail riding, rock crawling and towing. Four pinion gear design models provide smooth engagement and validated strength, making it an ideal solution for getting maximum traction to overcome challenging terrain.
