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).
 foto3 This force slows down the vehicle without any friction or wear, the energy is absorbed and dissipated in the.
