  • With maintenance free, increased life, maximum utilization, simple vehicle system integration, TIR reduces the Cost of Ownership to a minimum

Hybrid – regenerative retarders

In the coming years, product innovation and development will lead the market to regenerative braking and ultimately the E-Drive with transmission- or axle- integration of retarders. Telma’s focus is on product Innovation with a goal of establishing a sustainable business model with strong growth for the next 25 years in the commercial vehicle industry.In this regard, the Telma hybrid retarder targetscost-saving through enhanced fuel efficiency, reduced brake wear, less maintenance and repair, better engine performance, availability of extra electric power and lesser VOR time. All theseresultin increased profitabilityand at the same time helps in supports thegreen initiative and environmental responsibility.

Eco-Drive-Assistance (EDA)

The EDA, installed between the electronic throttle and the engine ECU, measures the vehicle speed and the engine rpm, without any vehicle CANBUS connection. It also recognizes the vehicle load, driver rhythm and acceleration cycles.The device helps to keep the engine rpm in the particular ‘Green Zone’ which reflects the optimum running condition, leading to a reduction in fuel consumption by around 5 to 12 per cent. The EDA is most suited for transportation modes which involve frequent stop-start cycles and can be integrated independent of vehicle type, brand, application or size.

Hybrid – regenerative retarders

IRCS is linked into the vehicle CANBUS and replaces the conventional ECU’s and power to the retarder with 1single module. Its state of the art technology brings many advantages and benefits. From increased brake performances, less power consumption, extended retarder durability, highest safety approvals, less installation work, optimum vehicle integration and minimized wire connections, up to a uniform software with parameter setting. The robust design allows a chassis frame installation and uniform use with all Telma retarder types. Optionally iRCS can,via retarder activation, add new functionality to the vehicle brake system, fe. downhill-cruise control or an increased engine brake performance.

iRCS is the answer to multiple control boxes and system integration responsibility that is a key target of the vehicle OEM in India. The brake system is an integral part of the quality and durability of each vehicle on the roads in India which is sooner or later a given standard by legislation in an attempt to make the road safe and reduce the amount of accidents. The end-user will benefit from the efficient life cycle cost without the negative impact of overheating the cooling system or causing fuel consumption due to drag in the transmission oil.
