The system consists of actuators and an ECU, which electrically open and close the tailgate.
The electric external clutch actuator is developed for use in AMT applications as well as clutch-by-wire (CbW) solutions. The actuator has fully integrated electronics, only requiring power and position signal to operate.
The ATrAct gear control unit is a top mounted unit that comprises of a full set of extremely compact gear actuators including shift forks, working directly on each gear in the transmission.
The ECU (Electronic Control Unit), as well as all sensors and connectors are included as a part of the unit, making it a highly integrated, efficient, compact and cost optimized solution.

Distributed E/E design
The brushless electric motor, the controller and the planetary spindle drive make up the core of the actuator. The mechanical system is connected via a hydrostatic cylinder, and the data bus is connected via CAN, CAN FD or Flexray.
