Boot lids and tailgates that open and close automatically are highly coveted convenience functions in passenger cars. With more demand for these functions, Vehicle Manufacturers are looking at integrating them into more vehicle models in the same way as of electric windows in their early days. POWERISE®, the electromechanical drive from Stabilus, makes this contemporary comfort possible.
Electromechanical Drives – POWERISE® Explained
The electromechanical POWERISE® drives are spindle drives, where electric drive, gears, and spindle gears are connected in series. This translates the drive’s rotary motion into a linear motion. Stabilus POWERISE® spindle drives are suitable for either single or double-sided applications and allow the spindles to operate and stop tailgates in any intermediate position. The drives are managed by the vehicle’s control system, allowing them to automatically open and close the tailgate. They also permit the opening and closing motion with the push of a button or via remote control.
