Technology

Telma has been a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of electromagnetic retarders. The Global company with industrial footprint in France, China and Portugal showcased its latest technology in the field of auxiliary braking systems through the eco-friendly hybrid retarder, the new-age Telma Input Retarder (TiR), and the next-generation Integrated Retarder Control system (iRCS). Telma has taken up exclusive distribution of Eco-Drive-Assistance (EDA), an electronic support which eliminates ‘aggressive’ throttle behaviour and could prove to be an important product for Indian conditions on new emission standards (EURO IV or higher).

Globally, the retarder market is estimated to be around 280,000 units against any form of primary braking of around 3,250,000 commercial vehicles above 5T GVW category (courtesy: OIAC). The penetration level of the retarder technologyis estimated to grow to 35 per cent in the next five years from the current rate of 8 per cent.Telma is globally recognised through its collaboration with leading component OEMs including ZF, Eaton, Fast Gear, Allison, Qijiang, Dana, Meritor, Kessler, Albion and many others. Emerging markets such as Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia including India, have recognised Telma as a preferred partner owing to the sub-tropical climate conditions in the regions.
