Low installation costs

Fully configurable product with factory solutions such as engine mounted aftertreatment and full power units to limit installation complexity.

Global solution

The 2406J will be available in single label certification for EU Stage V, U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, Japan 2014 and Korea Tier 4 Final providing global customers a single source solution that streamlines design, installation and service processes.

2406J-E13TA Industrial Diesel Engine Standard Equipment

  • DOC - Diesel Oxidation Catalyst
  • DPF - Diesel Particulate Filter
  • SCR - Selective Catalytic Reduction
  • SCR Auxiliaries - A range of tanks and heated lines are available

Air inlet system
  • Turbocharged aftercooled

Control system
  • All connectors and wiring looms waterproof and designed to withstand harsh off-highway environments
  • Flexible and configurable software features and well supported SAE J1939 CAN bus enables highly integrated machines
  • Full electronic control system control system with all system functions controlled from a single, engine-mounted electronic control module

Cooling system
  • Detailed guidance on cooling system design and validation available to ensure machine reliability
  • Vertical outlet thermostat housing, centifugal water pump

Flywheels and flywheel housing
  • Wide choice of drivetrain interfaces, SAE1 configurations

Fuel system
  • Mechanical Unit Injector fuel system, controlled electronically
  • Industrial technology requires Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel fuel (ULSD, 15 ppm sulphur), in addition to ultra low sulphur diesel oils, for use in Tier 4 Final/Stage V engines. These cleaner fuels and oils will help reduce ash and maintain service intervals. In addition, B20 biodiesel capability adds even greater sustainability where desired or required
