Retarder system – what is it and what is it used for?
Retarder is a device used for long-term braking the vehicle. We, Auto-CUBY uses retarders made by TELMA. Telma induction brakes, commonly known as electrical or electromagnetic retarders, offer an endurance braking system: they dissipate a large part of the braking energy, thus relieving conventional braking systems. Induction braking systems dissipate the braking energy by generating eddy currents. Telma induction braking systems are made of a fixed stator and a pair of rotors that are attached to the driveshaft to allow it to rotate. With Telma induction braking systems, it is thus possible to effectively slow down a rotating shaft without friction and therefore without wear.
ADVANTAGES OF TELMA RETARDERS:
SAFETY – the electromagnetic technology guarantees unequalled availability and full braking power provided by the Telma retarder, regardless of the vehicle’s speed.
THE SAVINGS – vehicles equipped with a Telma retarder can multiply the lifespan of their service braking system up to ten times.
STOPPING DISTANCE IS REDUCED.
SPEED IS STABILIZED.
EXTRA COMFORT – the complete lack of friction makes Telma retarders totally silent in all conditions of use.
ZERO IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT – Telma induction brakes have no negative impact on the environment : their operation does not generate any pollutant emissions, thus reducing health risks associated with fine particles.
