Why KLAM electromagnetic retarders?
The Klam retarders are lighter, smaller, with a lower power consumption and higher brake torque.
KLAM retarders offer the largest braking torque in the market, as well as competitive dimensions, weights and electrical consumptions. The KLAM product range has systems of 16,8 and even 6 coils and are applicable on the driveline, gearbox and differential.
The Klam retarders are maintenance free.
Due to the closed construction the bearings are greased for life.
The design of the Klam retarder is modular.
This means in case of a repair the parts are easy to exchange and can be handled without special tooling nor training.
The Klam retarder uses isolated ground connections.
The Klam retarder has many applications.
Not only the automotive application is available but also KLAM retarders are installed in a wide range of industrial applications (dynamometers...)
Production under the most demanding Quality standards.
The use of modern production methods and computer aided design resulted in a cast stator, with a higher heat absorption.
More than 50 years of experience.
Learning from the past like the coil fixing system is standard on every Klam retarder (U/L standard).
Research & Development.
From 2002 the Klam product line is available with electronic control systems. These systems give many benefits to the truck & bus OEM and provides the possibility to integrate the retarder into the vehicle management.
All materials used and products aquired for manufacturing the retarder line are according
U/L approval (US Standard / comply EC regulations).
