Page 11 3 C15 Engine with ACERT™ Technology A combination of innovations working at the point of combustion, ACERT Technology optimizes engine performance while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 3 and European EU Stage IIIa emission regulations for off-road applications. Turbocharged and Air-to-Air Aftercooling (ATAAC) The turbocharged air-to-air aftercooling system provides high horsepower with increased response time while keeping exhaust temperatures low for long hours of continuous operation. Cat® C15 Engine with ACERT Technology The C15 engine provides a full-rated gross power (SAE J1995) of 403 kW (540 hp) at 2000 rpm with a torque of 2356 Nm (1738 lb/ft). The combination of large displacement and high torque allow the RM-500 to propel through the toughest materials. Mechanically Actuated Electronically Controlled Unit Injection (MEUI) The MEUI fuel system is a unique system that combines the technical advancement of an electronic control system with the simplicity of direct mechanically controlled unit fuel injection. The MEUI system excels in its ability to control injection pressure over the entire engine operating speed range. These features allow the C15 to have complete control over injection timing, duration and pressure. Multiple Injection Fuel Delivery Multiple injection fuel delivery involves a high degree of precision. Precisely shaping the combustion cycle lowers combustion chamber temperatures, which generates fewer emissions and optimizes fuel combustion, translating into more work output for your fuel cost. 4 C15 Cylinder Block The cylinder block is a one-piece, grey iron block that features generous ribbing for stiffness and heavy bearing bulkheads for rigidity and strength as the crankshaft turns. This new design supports the engine’s higher compression ratios and increases its power density. The incorporation of straight-thread, o-ring connection points reduces the loss of engine oil and fluids. Air-to-Air Aftercooling Air-to-air aftercooling keeps air intake temperatures down and in concert with the tight tolerance combustion chamber components, maximizes fuel efficiency and minimizes emissions. New turbocharger, unique cross-flow head, single, front driven, overhead cam and a more efficient intake manifold generate significant improvements in air flow. This generates significant improvements in efficiency and reduced emissions. High Cylinder Pressures High cylinder pressures combined with tightly controlled tolerances promote extremely efficient fuel burn, less blow by and lower emissions. Service, Maintenance and Repair Easier service, maintenance and repair is accomplished by monitoring key functions and logging critical indicators. Advanced electronic diagnostic capabilities are possible using Cat Electronic Technician. ADEM™ A4 electronic Control Module The ADEM A4 electronic control module manages fuel delivery, valve timing and airflow to get the most performance per gallon (liter) of fuel used.
