Cummins (NYSE:CMI) has announced the addition of two new Digital Master Controls (DMC), DMC2000 and 6000 to their suite of PowerCommand® power system paralleling products. The new Master Control products are enhanced to meet market needs while supporting a wide range of configurations suiting various design complexities. The pre-engineered system level controls will enable faster delivery time to customers at an optimized price.

Cummins’s new DMC products are paralleling system designed to directly interface with Cummins Power Generation PowerCommand generator sets and switchgear and ATS to deliver a truly integrated power control solution. This integrated power system solution seamlessly provides reliability and dependability when our customers need it most whether they be in critical applications like hospitals, airports, data centers, telecommunications or high-tech manufacturing facilities.

The new DMC2000 and DMC6000 will complement the already-existing DMC8000 by offering integrated control solutions that meet market demand for a wide range of site designs where the completely customizable DMC8000 exceeds site specifications.

The DMC2000 and DMC6000 are pre-engineered, pre-designed, and scalable and will broaden the scope of Cummins Power Generation’s industry-leading commercial offerings.

“By adding the DMC2000 and DMC6000 to our line of power system controls, we can now offer the proven excellence of the DMC8000 for a wide spectrum of power system applications. For customers designing simple power systems, the DMC2000 and DMC6000 are available with a faster lead-time and are priced competitively compared to the custom-built DMC8000,” said Wissam Balshe, Director of the Cummins Power Generations Systems & Controls Business.

The new products provide comprehensive design flexibility, control modularity, enhanced user interface experience, and more than 1,200 failure scenarios that have been analyzed, tested and mitigated to ensure complete power control. “We performed extensive factory prototype testing to ensure rigorous, failure-mode response DMCs to provide best-in-class performance, resiliency, and system uptime in any potentially disruptive scenario,” continued Balshe.
