The Evolution of the Engine Brake
Jacobs’ HPD provides you the lightest, most cost-effective, high power vehicle retarding technology available.
Jacobs’ HPD Technology is the Next Logical Step in Engine Braking
Constant evolution of engine, powertrain, and complete vehicle technology requires an engine brake that can answer increased retarding demands. Developed to complement these technology trends and help further future developments, Jacobs’ HPD delivers the retarding power needed to:
- Compensate for decreased aerodynamic drag and decreased rolling resistance of the latest trucks
- Compensate for the trend toward lower engine speed operation and specification of smaller displacement engines
- Operate at the engine speeds you use, and avoid downshifting during retarding
In addition, HPD is fully integrated into the engine and is completely compatible with the latest developments in cruise and safety features.
