It's basically a differential... there are outputs to each drive axle. In normal operation, it's unlocked, and it allows each output shaft to rotate at a different speed. This is critical if you have tires on one axle more worn than the other. When locked, each output shaft is locked in to rotate at a matching speed.

Power divider and interaxle differential are two names used to describe the same thing. The lock simply ensure that both outputs from the power divider always rotate at the same speed.

This is typical for tandem axle trucks. Two axles are live axles, and the driveshaft goes into a power divider. The power divider supplies power to both axles.

How does a tandem axle power divider operate?

The power divider is essentially a differential. In the unlocked position, it will provide power to both axles.. however, as torque will follow the path of least resistance, if you were to lift a single one of those wheels off the ground, the vehicle would not move. The power divider locks causes the power divider to make the outputs to both axles rotate at the same speed... in normal, on-road operation, this should remain unlocked, as differences in tire wear between the two axles can cause damage to the driveline.

What is voltage divider circuit?

The two resistor voltage divider is used often to supply a voltage different from that of an available battery or power supply. In application the output voltage depends upon the resistance of the load it drives.
