Transmission Output Retarder - وحدة إبطاء سرعة النقل الحركية

Transmission output speed retarders are non-wearing auxiliary braking devices used in conjunction with a rotatable vehicle transmission output member or driveshaft in order to safely augment the conventional friction-based braking system or service brakes used on certain large vehicles, such as diesel-powered medium and heavy trucks or busses. Such speed retarding devices or retarders are useful in helping to slow or stop a vehicle, particularly under continuous-braking or start-stop conditions and while the vehicle is descending a relatively long, steep slope, such as a descending stretch of mountain highway. Without the use of a transmission output speed retarder, a conventional vehicle braking system operating continuously under such aggressive slope or traffic conditions may tend to wear more rapidly, potentially reducing the working life of the service brake.

Example sentence(s):
  • تستخدم المبطئات لتقليل سرعة المركبة, والمحافظة على سرعتها ثابتة إثناء نزول منحدر. والمبطئات ليس بمقدورها إيقاف المركبة إيقاف تام, حيث تنخفض
