Momentum GreenLync 2.0 provides natural gas engine information
 

   Momentum Fuel Technologies has introduced the GreenLync 2.0 electronics communication system for its line of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system solutions for Class 6 to Class 8 trucks.

   GreenLync 2.0 technology provides drivers with information on natural gas engines to driver confidence and providing a more diesel-like experience. Through collaboration with Cummins, the system is designed to reduce false occurrences of engine fault codes. The GreenLync 2.0 technology can integrate with telematics platforms to enable fleet managers to understand their vehicle performance and optimize fuel management.

   The GreenLync 2.0 driver message center displays the live fuel pressure reading, temperature-compensated fuel level and distance-to-empty. GreenLync 2.0 technology calculates a number of factors to deliver a distance-to-empty reading to the driver message center, reducing range anxiety and giving drivers more confidence in the system.

   Real-time fuel pressure and temperature-compensated fuel levels give drivers an even more detailed picture of their system’s performance to help maximize their efficiency.

   “Customers told us they wanted a gauge that was more like they ones in their diesel vehicles,” said Mike Zimmerman, general manager, Momentum Fuel Technologies. “Now, with the distance-to-empty information at their fingertips, drivers can have a diesel-like experience and an easier transition to CNG vehicles.”

   If a vehicle is equipped with a factory-installed in-dash fuel gauge, GreenLync 2.0 technology will drive the gauge as well as its own driver message center. Momentum’s GreenLync 2.0 electronics package has been tested and verified for use on all U.S. truck OEM chassis makes/models with factory gauges and wiring.

   All Momentum CNG fuel systems are designed and built in collaboration with Cummins. Through this development work, Cummins’ diagnostic system can now recognize when a CNG fuel system is low on fuel, which helps to reduce false occurrences of engine faults codes. All Momentum systems are able to integrate with Cummins Westport L9N, B6.7N and the new ISX12N.
