Cummins Inc. has made available Clean Idle Certified on-highway engines that meet the new California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) idle reduction regulation. The Cummins full lineup of on-highway engines, including the ISX, ISM, ISL, ISC and ISB, are available to meet this new regulation by generating less than 30-g/hour Nox emissions at idle.
Effective immediately, Cummins customers can now specify a 50-state Clean Idle Certified engine option when ordering a new vehicle. Customers also have the option, through their Cummins distributor, to update existing 2007 engines to meet the regulations.
Cummins also offers other available electronic engine features, such as a programmable idle shutdown timer. Together, these features help reduce a customer’s idle time and fuel consumption, says the company.
