C18 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.

Optimum Power

The C18 engine performs at a full-rated gross power (SAE J1995) of 429 kW (575 hp) at 1900 rpm. The combination of large displacement and high torque allow the PM200 to achieve maximum production. Engine power curve is optimized for milling applications providing optimum power while keeping the engine operating at peak efficiency.

Mechanically-Actuated ElectronicallyControlled 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 C18 to have complete control over injection timing, duration and pressure.

Precise Multiple Injection Fuel Delivery

Combustion chamber temperatures are lowered by precisely shaping the combustion cycle generating fewer emissions and optimizing fuel combustion; translating into more work output for your fuel cost.

C18 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.

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.

Turbocharged and Air-to-AirAftercooling (ATAAC)

High horsepower with increased response time is assured while keeping exhaust temperatures low for long hours of continuous operation.

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 design, single front driven overhead cam and a more efficient intake manifold generate significant improvements in air flow, maximizing efficiency and reduced emissions.

ADEM™ A4 Electronic Control Module

The module manages fuel delivery, valve timing and airflow to get the most performance per liter (gallon) of fuel used. The control module provides flexible fuel mapping, allowing the engine to respond quickly to varying application needs. It keeps track of engine and machine conditions while keeping the engine operating at peak efficiency.
