Cummins is ahead of the curve in developing technology solutions that are good for the environment – and even better for owners.


The 2013 regulations call for the addition of On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) for on-highway engines. On-Board Diagnostics are designed to monitor the performance of the vehicle’s emission system to help detect issues, recognize faults and ensure optimal performance. Cummins is ready with a proven solution that we’ve used on thousands of on-road vehicles since 2007.


At the same time, new regulations have been enacted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), setting greenhouse gas (GHG) and fuel-efficiency standards. Because lowering fuel use results in less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the main GHG regulated, the standards are equivalent. These regulations are scheduled to take effect in 2014 and 2017.


The good news is that every Cummins on-highway engine from the ISB6.7 to the ISX15 will be fully capable of meeting these GHG emissions and fuel-efficiency standards by utilizing technology that is already in use today. Cummins has the right technology when it comes to delivering fuel economy leadership.


So in addition to equipping vehicles with On-Board Diagnostics, Cummins will be meeting the new GHG emissions and fuel-efficiency standards a year ahead of schedule – in 2013.



Customer Benefits. Every Engine.


Why is Cummins bringing this solution to market a year early? Because we know it works. Because it's best to align with the required OBD standards and make one change instead of two. Because it requires no big changes on the part of OEMs in terms of installation. Because everyone involved benefits – using less fuel lowers costs for customers, lower emissions is good for public health and the environment, and reduced oil consumption is good for the nation.



On-Board Diagnostics. Visible Reminder.


Cummins OBD is a proven system. In fact, many current Cummins engines are already equipped with OBD. The OBD system continuously monitors the engine and aftertreatment system, recognizing the potential for an out-of-range event, thus providing a real-time alert of the entire emissions control system.


Cummins OBD system comes equipped with a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) on the vehicle’s instrument panel. The MIL will illuminate when it detects a malfunction related to the emissions control system, alerting the operator that the engine needs proper troubleshooting and possible repair at the first available opportunity. Our 2013 solution will also feature a higher-capacity Electronic Control Module (ECM) capable of managing all engine, aftertreatment and OBD functions in a single unit for tighter control over emissions.



No Change In Maintenance.


Emissions regulations and engine control features are changing, but the long maintenance intervals associated with Cummins engines won’t be. Oil filter, oil, fuel filter, coolant filter, overhead adjustment, Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) filter and all the other normal maintenance items will have the same intervals as current Cummins engines.
