FRENELSA ELECTRIC RETARDERS TO BE SEEN AT BUSWORLD
Hall 8, booth 827
Frenelsa is present at Busworld Brussels with customized electrical retarders. The Spanish company is established in 1974 and produces innovative retarders, and doing so contributes in reducing the emission of dust from the normal service brakes. The Frenelsa retarder works with a magnetic field created by 8 coils that gradually can slow down the vehicle.
The retarder works without friction. The magnetic field does the work. Moreover the Frenelsa retarder is silent. The retarder is fitted within the driveshaft. When operated the magnetic field slows down the discs, surrounding the coils, on which sides the driveshaft is mounted. It can easily be retrofitted in vans, minibuses, buses and trucks, even if they are already a number of years on the road. According to Frenelsa the retarder extends up to 7 times the lifecycle of service brakes, which means a positive result on the TCO.
The Frenelsa retarder range starts with a retarder for 3 tons vans, such as the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, VW Crafter, For Transit, Iveco Daily etc., and delivers 350 Nm of torque. For heavier vehicles such as light duty trucks, buses and heavy duty trucks from 5 tons to 44 tons, Frenelsa offers retarders with a torque from 550 Nm to even 3500 Nm.
