What Are Magnetic Shocks and Struts?
Magnetic shocks and struts are components in an active suspension system. Rather than pressurized air or coil springs, these systems use magnetic fluids to respond to changes in the road surface and provide damping resistance.
How Do Magnetic Shocks and Struts Work?
MagneRide systems work by using electronic signals to adjust the resistance of a magnetorheological fluid—also commonly known as magnetic oil. This constant, cyclical process process that includes the following steps:
Ride height sensors at each wheel take constant mechanical readings of the height of the body of the car relative to the axel.
The sensors send this information to an electronic control unit (ECU) which calculates whether that corner of the car needs more or less resistance to keep the ride at a constant height. This small computer is also sometimes called an electronic control module (ECM).
The ECU sends signals to the magnetic struts. These struts contain electromagnetic coils that can adjust the viscosity—or thickness and hardness—of the magnetic oil inside. When a strut needs to provide more resistance, such as when the car goes over a dip in the road, the fluid becomes more viscous, and vice-versa.
