Columbus, Ind., United States:
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) is showcasing its platform of zero-emissions applied sciences this week on the IAA Transportation present, the world’s largest mobility present, in Hannover, Germany. A variety of new Cummins applied sciences and the just lately acquired Meritor ePowerprepare applied sciences can be found publicly collectively for the primary time. With over a century of expertise as a worldwide power chief, Cummins is solidifying its dedication to offering complete zero-emissions technology on a worldwide scale.
“Cummins has deep application expertise, and we are uniquely positioned to deliver solutions that truly fit the needs of commercial applications,” stated Amy Davis, Vice President and President of New Power at Cummins. “Realizing a net-zero future will require a range of technologies. Our extensive zero-emissions portfolio is how we will meet varied customer demands across the hardest-to-abate industries and make the energy transition possible.”
One key zero-emissions product Cummins revealed at IAA is its fourth-generation hydrogen gasoline cell engine. Designed to satisfy the duty-cycle, efficiency and packaging necessities of medium- and heavy-duty vans and buses, the gasoline cell technology is out there in 135 kW single and 270 kW twin modules.
Scania in Europe and Daimler Trucks North America have every introduced collaborations with Cummins to develop and combine these next-generation gasoline cell engines into demonstrator automobiles. The techniques use fourth-generation variable stress technology to supply greater power density, power nodes and working temperatures for simpler system integration into automobiles. They even have robust working cycle effectivity and sturdiness for a decrease complete price of possession.
“We know our customers have diverse needs and complicated duty cycles to support, which is why we focus on continued innovation and improvement,” stated Amy Adams, Vice President of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies at Cummins. “We’re developing hydrogen fuel cell technology that demonstrates the capacity and flexibility required to meet or exceed the power needs for on-highway commercial vehicles – proving hydrogen as a viable solution to decarbonize the economy.”
Attendees at IAA may also get the primary glimpse of a drivetrain assembled with a newly launched Cummins lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery pack, Meritor’s 17xe ePowerprepare and Meritor’s Power Control and Accessory System (PCAS). Cummins just lately added the ePowertain and PCAS solutions to its portfolio via its acquisition of Meritor. The ePowerprepare leverages market-leading applied sciences within the axle, motor and inverter, delivering efficiency, effectivity and packaging benefits at a aggressive price. Additionally, the PCAS offers power the place wanted and management of crucial sub-systems whereas decreasing packaging dimension and simplifying integration.
Cummins is including an LFP battery to its line of lithium-ion battery merchandise to increase help of electrified industrial automobile purposes. The LFP answer offers prospects entry to sooner charging and longer-life batteries, concentrating on the medium-duty truck and college bus markets. By utilizing a multi-chemistry technique, Cummins is positioned to increase its manufacturing capability additional and diversify its provide chain, offering prospects with cheaper electrification solutions.
“We are giving customers options to enable them to adapt to a zero-emissions future faster,” stated Brian Wilson, General Manager of Electrified Components at Cummins. “With the recent acquisition of Meritor and our new multi-chemistry approach, we will be able to tailor our solutions and offer a one-stop-shop for customers’ powertrain needs.”
Cummins’ portfolio contains 4 batteries, every of which targets a distinct responsibility cycle and use case and complement one another. In addition to the LFP choice, this contains three nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) batteries – the BP95E, BP74E and BP30E. The BP95E is Cummins’ next-generation answer that prioritizes larger power density in purposes for prospects who want extra weight-sensitive solutions or have longer ranges. The BP30E is good for assembly limited-space purposes and rugged calls for, and the BP74E is the inspiration for Cummins’ BEV innovation and progress.
