What is a KLAM retarder?



The KLAM retarder technology is based on the Foucault law(Eddy current brake) y its known Braking effect

Basically it is made up of a Stator with coils(fixed part) and vented rotors(moving part.

 foto2 When an electric current is applied to the stator, a magnetic field that passes thru the rotors is created call Foucault current ( this results in a force that goes in the opposite direction of the rotation).
