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.
|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).|
|This force slows down the vehicle without any friction or wear, the energy is absorbed and dissipated in the atmosphere as heat by the rotors.|
