Cummins is showcasing its latest and most well-known Defence power portfolio at DSEI 2019 in London, England from 10th-13th September. Cummins has been a leader in integrated defence systems for year and is known for its legacy of reliability and commitment to innovation. Our knowledge and product portfolio can tailor powerful solutions for any obstacle.
Below is a preview of what you can see at this year’s show:
The ACE project is an opposed-piston diesel engine, working on a two-stroke combustion cycle eliminating the need for a valvetrain. ACE is projected to deliver a 21 percent reduction in thermal rejection. This is a 50 percent increase in power density and a 13 percent increase in fuel efficiency over engines currently in use.
The BPcE battery, which is generally partnered with a compact generator, uses a high-efficiency traction motor which provides continuous torque, eliminating the need for gear shifting and dramatically reducing powertrain noise. An instant peak torque boost is available when the machine hits difficult working conditions.
Cummins ISL9 is a highly flexible power choice with a light weight, compact size and fuel efficient 9 litre configuration. The ISL9 has been designed with heavy duty structural strength and incorporates design features which are normally associated with larger Cummins engines. An enhanced camshaft and roller cam followers, a viscous damper and high capacity lube system enable Cummins to maintain high durability and reliability with a high power to weight ratio.
The QSB6.7 is one of the most popular and versatile engines ever built by Cummins, which makes it a great addition to the Defence engine catalogue. While other manufacturers outsource their emissions aftertreatment systems, Cummins manufactures our own. This total integration of the engine and the exhaust system allows us to optimize fuel economy above the 5 percent we’ve already achieved with Tier 4 Interim engines, while achieving near-zero emissions at the same time.
On stand, Cummins will also be showcasing the 10kW Rugged Mobile Power (RMP) generator. The RMP series rooted in the success of the AMMPS product line and is ideal for military, defense and disaster relief organizations. The series is proven to perform in extreme physical environments by operating in temperatures from -45°C to 58°C, offering a low noise signature < 68 dB(A) at 7 meters. When compared with other commercial generator sets, the RMP series offers reduced maintenance costs and parts inventory needs due to parts commonality across all power nodes (5kW, 10kW, 15kW, 30kW, 60kW) whilst offering increased fuel efficiency up to 20 percent over other commercial and military generators. The RMP generator is available with a single and three phase voltage configuration and is switchable between 50Hz and 60Hz.
