Through this program, Cummins will deliver its most advanced and connected diesel engines to the mining industry. DEMS has proven to be a significant benefit to customers. For one mining customer, Cummins was able to reduce annual unplanned downtime costs by more than $110,000 per truck, and the early issue detection logic used in DEMS pre- vented progressive damage expenses by another $100,000 per truck per year. "These advancements are another step in Cummins' commit- ment to deliver solutions that help miners lower their cost of production," said Zach Gillen, executive director – mining, Cummins Inc. "We have invested more than a half billion dol- lars developing a full line-up of Tier 4 industrial solutions and we are thrilled with the performance. Miners are relentlessly pursing lower cost per ton, and we are confident DEMS and FleetguardFIT will deliver significant value, which is why we are making this available at no cost now. Cummins is commit- ted to delivering new technologies that help our customers be as successful as possible." By combining advanced hardware sensors and expert ana- lytics, DEMS allows Cummins to monitor engine system performance and deliver accurate, real-time operating information. In addition, experts at Cummins Care facilities around the globe analyze the real-time data and provide proactive rec- ommendations that enhance equipment productivity and reduce downtime and maintenance costs. Miners taking advantage of this program will also have visibility into filter life and oil quality. FleetguardFIT is a first- of-kind solution designed for Fleetguard filters. It includes pressure sensors for fuel, lube, air fil- ters and a fluid property sensor that monitors oil quality. Intelligent sensing and advanced data analytics allow Cummins experts to offer site-specific rec- ommendations to optimize filter and oil service intervals.
