Cummins has announced it is developing technology designed to simultaneously meet European and Chinese emission regulations.
Meeting both EU Stage V and China Stage IV, the upgraded high-performance engine was unveiled by Cummins at Bauma China and includes the company’s in-house electronic control system and unique air-intake to exhaust-out system.
Visitors to Bauma China in Shanghai were the first to see the 8.9-liter L series engine as it made its debut at the show.
Better than the predecessor
Providing 400hp (298kW) of output, the unit has a peak torque level of 1,800Nm which is an 11% increase over the company’s predecessor engine.
“At Cummins we design our products to deliver the optimum balance of performance, reliability and cost that best fits the customer and market needs. Our significant technology experience has enabled us to select the most appropriate solution for China and the Stage IV emissions regulations,” said Dr Lixin Peng, Cummins vice president for engineering, China ABO.
“Cummins CS IV engines are designed and developed for a wide range of applications. With our upgraded performance systems, we are able to achieve low emissions without compromising the ability of the engines to perform at the highest load factors or in the toughest conditions.”
By meeting both EU and Chinese emissions legislation, Cummins expects the engine’s control system and air-intake to exhaust-out system to simplify future upgrades of machines.
“With the common technology with Cummins EU Stage V, it makes next generation upgrade more flexible and easier, and offers more choices for the customers with full line of Cummins EU Stage V engines that will be dual certified to China Stage IV,” added Peng.
