Cummins Highlighting Customer-Inspired Technology At ICUEE 2015.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 29, 2015) – Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) presents its comprehensive engine lineup, technology and customer support for construction and utility customers at the International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) today through Oct. 1 in Louisville. The breadth of items on display demonstrates Cummins commitment to deliver reliable and fuel-efficient solutions through customer-inspired technology and support for construction and utility markets.
In the booth at ICUEE, Cummins will display the 4-cylinder QSF2.8, QSF3.8 and QSB4.5 engines together with the 6-cylinder QSB6.7, spanning a 49 hp-to-310 hp (37-231 kW) power range for equipment meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 Final emissions standards. Also on display will be a TQSF3.8 fully integrated Power Unit, meeting Tier 4 Final with an output range from 85 hp (63 kW) to 132 hp (99 kW). Cummins Tier 4 Final power continues to maximize productivity and reliability across a wide range of machines, rugged duty cycles and tough environments. These engines are totally integrated for optimized performance, from the air intake to the exhaust aftertreatment.
The QSF and QSB engines utilize filter-free, flow-through exhaust aftertreatment systems and a clean-combustion formula focused on fuel efficiency. For construction and utility customers, that means a lower cost of operation and higher uptime availability as they transition their fleets to Tier 4 Final-compliant equipment.
The 2.8-liter, 3.8-liter, 4.5-liter and 6.7-liter engines offer an ideal range of engine displacements and incremental performance to align with construction and utility equipment step-ups in capacity, size and operating weight across a broad product range. The ability to power-match is also realized with the potential for installation downsizing at two pivotal points – with a new, lower 74-hp (55 kW) rating for the QSF3.8 and a higher 173-hp (129 kW) rating for the QSB4.5.
Another leading technology Cummins will highlight at ICUEE is Connected Diagnostics.™ Currently available in on-highway vehicles and soon to be available for off-highway equipment, Connected Diagnostics is a customer’s direct line to Cummins when they need it most. Using a telematics device, a customer’s Cummins-powered equipment wirelessly connects the engine to Cummins for immediate diagnosis of an engine system fault alert, and provides valuable information they need within seconds.
Cummins leadership in technology innovation enables it to be at the forefront of meeting and exceeding customers’ expectations in the field. For example, the Cummins Tier 4 operator app, to be displayed at ICUEE, is the first educational smartphone application designed to help customers understand and get the most out of Cummins Tier 4 Interim/European Union (EU) Stage IIIB and Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV engines and aftertreatment systems. Available for both Google® Android and Apple® iOS users, the app has been designed as a walkthrough operation guide for both the engine and aftertreatment system.
Cummins Power Generation will also have a presence in the booth this year. On display will be the new Cummins Onan® NG 5500. This unit provides 120-/240-volt auxiliary electric power for commercial equipment located at job sites where compressed natural gas (CNG) is readily available. The quietest and lowest-vibration generator set in its class, the NG 5500 is available with an integrated hydraulic pump, and the engine can be equipped with Power Take-Off (PTO) capability. Voltage is digitally regulated, for absolute stability, without surge or variance.
Cummins also hopes to remind construction and utility customers of Cummins Care at ICUEE. Cummins Care complements the relationship between customers and Cummins distributors throughout the United States and Canada, as well as vehicle and equipment dealers. Customers who use Cummins Care can tap into the largest U.S. and Canadian service network in the industry, with over 3,500 locations. As part of the total value that Cummins offers customers, coupled with its strong commitment to customer support, Cummins Care provides a trusted information source for questions regarding the latest engine and product technology.
