Cummins Inc. announced the launch of its free online powertrain spec’ing tool, PowerSpec Web. Like the current and free PC-based PowerSpec application, PowerSpec Web offers users a free way to spec a powertrain based on intended operational objectives and to read feature descriptions in an online electronic feature library.
“Cummins has really focused on making the spec’ing process easy to use, with built in filters to help select the appropriate transmissions and axles based on the equipment customers are considering,” said RaNae Isaak, powertrain and TCO consultancy leader at Cummins. “Additionally, the feature description tool helps inform fleets and drivers of the interaction between features, and the hardware or software requirements needed to enable specific features.”
PowerSpec Web is mobile-friendly and allows users to view the latest information without having to make manual updates, the company noted.
According to Cummins, the PC-based version of PowerSpec is not going away and will continue to be a free tool for connecting to the vehicle, providing users access to ECM data in easy-to-read reports, trip report data, fault code information and duty cycle data insights. When licensed—which requires contacting a local Cummins administrator—equipment owners can adjust engine features related to vehicle operation.
Powerspec web can be accessed here and the PC-based application can be downloaded here.
