Johnson Electric announced a Cinching latch motor platform for automotive power tailgate closure. This new motor platform provides the industry’s highest power density in a compact package. Compared with existing motor technology, the new platform is 15% more compact, but can deliver 20% higher torque for fast and reliable cinching actuation. The cinching motor platform has integrated electronics with advanced EMC suppression. The motor designs support the range of power tailgates used in full size SUV, compact SUV and Hatchbacks.
“The convenience provided by power tailgate is driving a large demand for this feature”, said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing.
