The Eaton ELocker is a selectable locker, but rather than using a cable or air to actuate it, the locker uses an electromagnet. When activated the magnet forces a ball and ramp system to expand, driving a set of pins into the side gear and locking the spider gears from turning. This in effect spools or locks the two axles together, sending power evenly to both wheels. For a short video of the ELocker technology check out “How Eaton’s ELocker Technology Works” on YouTube.
