METS 2016: Cummins debuts panel system to European OEMs

Cummins introduced the panel system to European original equipment manufacturers today as the METS Trade Show opened in Amsterdam.

After initially launching C Command Connect last month at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference in the United States, Cummins introduced the panel system to European original equipment manufacturers today as the METS Trade Show opened in Amsterdam.

An extension of the C Command product line, C Command Connect is designed for Cummins Quantum Series QSB6.7, QSC8.3, QSL9 and QSM11 marine engines.

The company said a basic system (C Command Connect) and a premium system (C Command Connect Premiere) will be offered at launch at a lower cost than options currently offered on these engines.

Cummins said the C Command system is a modular selection of instrumentation and control panels engineered to help marine operators protect and enhance engine operation, as well as manage operating costs.

Each element is designed for complete integration with the engine, and for simplified vessel installation, with "plug and play" capability, the company said.

All components of the C Command system are intended for use in rugged marine environments, so enclosures are built to combat vessel vibration, humidity and ambient conditions in the engine room and at the helm.
