Product & Application

The Electromagnetic Retarder can provide up to 85% of the vehicles braking needs. Secondary braking systems become a MUST due to vehicle technical innovations:

  • More powerful engines.
  • Higher gross weights allowed
  • Less driveline losses
  • Better aerodynamics.

Driving a commercial vehicle will cost money; the obvious cost are fuel, insurance, tires, maintenance and the person doing the driving.

Many people forget that stopping or speed reduction is also very expensive... the wear and tear on the braking system (friction).

The Heavy Duty Retarder is a solution for several problems related to brake wear.

  • Heavy Duty provides the highest safety ……..because you will always have a "cool" set of foundation brakes.
  • Heavy Duty provides the highest efficiency ……because the retarder is frictionless and therefore will not cause wear on your foundation brakes.
  • Heavy Duty provides braking power where you need it. Already 80% of the brake power is available at 2mph. It will stop your vehicle without even touching the foundation brakes.
  • Heavy Duty provides the highest level of comfort, a safe feeling for driver, passengers and cargo shippers.

North America has a long lasting tradition of using devices integrated in the engine or mounted on the exhaust system. These systems are noisy, fuel in-efficient and cause reduction of the life of engine components.

Control

The Heavy Duty Electromagnetic Retarder can be controlled with a hand switch or through the brake pedal. For smooth braking, the power is divided in several steps. Compatible with ABS (Antilock Braking System)
