Columbus, Indiana–(business wire)–Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) will showcase its zero-emission technology platform this week at the world’s largest mobility show, the IAA Transportation Show, in Hannover, Germany. Cummins’ new suite of technologies and its recently acquired Meritor ePowertrain technology have been shown together for the first time. With more than a century of experience as the world’s power leader, Cummins reinforces its commitment to providing comprehensive zero-emissions technology on a global scale.

Amy Davis, Vice President and President, New Power, Cummins, said: “Achieving a net-zero future requires a range of technologies. Our extensive zero-emissions portfolio meets a variety of customer demands across the most challenging industries and how we can enable the energy transition.” is.”

One of Cummins’ major zero-emissions products at the IAA is its fourth generation hydrogen fuel cell engine. Designed to meet the duty cycle, performance and packaging requirements of medium and heavy duty trucks and buses, fuel cell technology is available in 135 kW single module and 270 kW dual module.

Europe’s Scania and Daimler Trucks North America have each announced a collaboration with Cummins to develop these next-generation fuel cell engines and integrate them into their demonstrator vehicles. The system uses 4th generation variable pressure technology to provide higher power densities, power nodes and operating temperatures for easier system integration into vehicles. It also has strong operating cycle efficiency and durability to reduce total cost of ownership.

Amy Adams, Vice President of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies at Cummins, said: “We are developing hydrogen fuel cell technology that will demonstrate the capacity and flexibility needed to meet or exceed the power demands of commercial vehicles on highways, and that hydrogen will decarbonize the economy. It has proven to be a viable solution for

IAA attendees get first glimpse of drivetrain assembled with newly introduced Cummins Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery pack, Meritor’s 17xe ePowertrain and Meritor’s Power Control and Accessories System (PCAS) . Cummins recently added ePowertain and PCAS solutions to its portfolio through its acquisition of Meritor. ePowertrain leverages market leading technology in axles, motors and inverters to deliver performance, efficiency and packaging benefits at a competitive cost. In addition, PCAS delivers power as needed and controls required subsystems while reducing package size and simplifying integration.

Cummins is adding LFP batteries to its Lithium Ion battery product line to expand support for electric commercial vehicle applications. The LFP solution gives customers access to faster charging and longer battery life for the medium-duty truck and school bus markets. Using a multi-chemistry strategy will enable Cummins to further expand its manufacturing capabilities, diversify its supply chain and offer customers more cost-effective electrification solutions.

Brian Wilson, Cummins General Manager of Electrified Components, said: His recent acquisition of Meritor and our new multi-chemistry approach will allow him to tailor solutions and provide a one-stop shop to his customers for their powertrain needs. ”

The Cummins portfolio includes four batteries, each targeting different duty cycles and use cases and complementing each other. In addition to the LFP option, this includes three Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) batteries (BP95E, BP74E, and BP30E). The BP95E is Cummins’ next-generation solution, prioritizing higher energy density in applications for customers requiring a more weight-sensitive solution or with longer range. The BP30E is ideal for limited space applications and to meet the toughest demands, and the BP74E is the cornerstone of Cummins’ BEV innovation and progress.
