Cummins is the only company that produces all of the critical subsystems required to build an engine or genset in-house. The Company’s experience with making components work together has established Cummins as the industry leader in systems integration.
Unlike its competitors, Cummins can design its components with no proprietary boundaries. Subsystem designers work hand-in-hand with system integrators to ensure customer needs are met.
Electronic Control Modules coordinate engine accessories, ABS brakes, the transmission and more to deliver top performance. The Interact System on most Cummins engines includes advanced prognostics and diagnostics.
Cummins Power Generation develops and manufactures all of the key components for gensets, from the alternator and transfer switches to the controls, turbochargers and paralleling systems. They all communicate via Cummins’ PowerCommand digital controls.
Controls are critical to operate subsystem functions efficiently and to integrate Cummins’ engines and gensets into vehicles, equipment, buildings and power systems. They deliver information and take input from operators, service systems and equipment manufacturers.
The Company’s comprehensive approach enables Cummins to deliver better designs to component customers, too. The Company’s market-leading Variable Geometry Turbochargers, for example, were designed differently from others because the Company understood heavy-duty diesel engines better than anyone else.
