Compact tailgate motor

December 04, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Johnson Controls has developed a compact motor for tailgates. The parts are particularly designed for deployment in Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and hatchbacks.

The new tailgate motor offers the best driving and holding torque in the industry, claims Johnson Electric Strategic Marketing Director Jim Dick. At the same time, the motor is very compact at a diameter of 24 mm (less than 1 inch). With its compact size, the motor requires very little installation space.

The drive is equipped with accurate position sensing and offers high electromagnetic compatibility.
