Cummins showcased its on-highway engines and technology at The Work Truck Show for the first time last week in Indianapolis from March 8-10. A selection of Cummins products for work truck applications were on display in the Cummins booth, including the ISB6.7 diesel engine, the ISL G natural gas engine and the QuickCheck 5200 handheld information tool.

Cummins engines also will be shown in various other displays throughout the show. “Cummins was proud to exhibit, for the first time, at The Work Truck Show 2011 in Indianapolis,” says Lou Wenzler, On-Highway Market communications director.

Cummins full lineup of engines for on-highway truck and vocational applications ranges from its ISX15 and ISX11.9 Heavy-Duty engines to its ISL9, ISC8.3 and ISB6.7 MidRange engines to its 6.7L Turbo Diesel engine for Ram Chassis Cabs, all of which utilize the Cummins Aftertreatment System with selective catalytic reduction technology to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s near-zero emissions standards.

The Cummins ISB6.7 for work trucks incorporates Cummins’ ISB engine with a fully integrated emissions control system. This fully integrated system includes a diesel particulate filter, cooled exhaust gas recirculation and SCR technology. Additionally, the ISB6.7 features the VGT Turbocharger and the High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) fuel system.

The ISL G natural gas engine, designed by Cummins Westport Inc., is designed to deliver optimum reliability and durability by maximizing uptime and minimizing maintenance requirements. Its combination of sophisticated air/fuel handling, ignition and electronic engine controls functions as a fully integrated system designed to deliver optimum efficiency at the lowest cost. The engine eaturing a maintenance-free three-way catalyst and the ability to operate on either liquefied natural gas or compressed natural gas.

Also on display in the Cummins booth was Cummins QuickCheck 5200, the latest version of the handheld information tool used to monitor and edit engine data and feature parameters. The QuickCheck 5200 is designed to allow drivers to adjust engine parameters settings such as road speed governor and idle shutdown without needing a PC. It includes both the QuickCheck CE and PowerSpec CE applications preinstalled.
