Auburn Positractions Electric - Locker

Need more traction?  From rain, ice, and snow to muddy trails and back roads, Auburn Positraction units provide a full range of limited-slip differentials.
Improve street performance, these electric positraction units are designed to transfer torque quickly and smoothly in any driving condition. We can supply Auburn Positraction's for Dana, Jeep, AMC, Ford and General Motor'sThe Auburn ECTED locking differential is a SELECTABLE limited slip to a full locking differential.   Don't get stuck again, below you will find a detailed application guide and information on how the Auburn Limited Slip Positractioin works.

Electric - Locker

This positraction enhances the traction required for sever weather conditions, of-road towing and plowing in Jeeps, pickup trucks and SUV's. The ECTED is a selectable traction device; an on/off switch is mounted near the driver.  The Auburn's actuation is an electro-magnetic device that "ramps up" and compresses the clutch pack. The Elocker is an open differential when not engaged. The kit includes a wiring harnes and switch. This positraction is available for the ected_th.jpg Chevrolet GMC 10 Bolt 8.5", 8.6",  Dana 35, Dana 44 and Dana 50 front. Ford 8.8" differential as well as AMC20,

Hot it works

When “off” – the clutch pack (7), which is located behind the side gear (6) provides the limited slip mode. As torque increases, the separating forces within the differential gears increase, causing the clutch pack to be compressed and thereby providing bias torque to the high traction wheel – your performance limited slip differential action. When selected “on”, current is sent to the electromagnetic coil (8). The coil is retained by a clip that fits over one of the bearing cap bolts, making it non-rotational. The coil rides on a ball bearing (9). The ball bearings spin with the differential case (10).

The coil creates a magnetic flux so that the pilot cone (1) is pulled into engagement with the differential case (10). This frictional engagement causes the bearing balls (2) to ride up on a ramp machined into the side gear (3). This radial travel of the balls (2) also causes lateral movement of the side gear (3). The lateral movement of the side gear (3) applies a force onto the center block (4). The center block (4) has an elongated hole that the center pin (5) fits through, allowing it to float. The center block (4) applies force to the opposite side gear (6), compressing the clutch pack (7) giving the user a solid axle assembly – the spool/locker performance you desire at the strip or off-road.  Click image to enlarge.  See installation instructions.
