Cummins goes wireless with Connected Diagnostics
Following successful integration on over 35,000 on-highway vehicles, Cummins has extended its Connected Diagnostics system to include off-highway equipment.
Using an active telematics connection, it means Cummins-powered equipment can now communicate wirelessly with Cummins for immediate diagnosis of an engine fault alert, allowing valuable information to be delivered back to the customer within seconds, said the engine manufacturer.
Customer communication occurs via e-mail or the firm’s Connected Diagnostics mobile app. Notifications identify and prioritise fault codes with a clear recommendation of the action to be taken. The company said that nearly every Cummins electronic engine is fully compatible with Connected Diagnostics, and needs only an active telematics device installed in the equipment to transmit data.
