What are the definitions of the Caterpillar diesel engine rating?


Explanation of Ratings A, B, C, D, and E: For an exact determination of the appropriate rating.

Installation

Engine rating obtained and presented in accordance with ISO3046/1.


IND-A (Continuous) Continuous heavy-duty service where the engine is operated at maximum power and speed up to 100% of the time without interruption or load cycling.


IND-B For service where power and/or speed are cyclic (time at full load not to exceed 80%).


IND-C (Intermittent) Intermittent service where maximum power and/or speed are cyclic (time at full load not to exceed 50%).


IND-D For service where maximum power is required for periodic overloads (time at full load not to exceed 10% of the duty cycle).


IND-E For service where maximum power is required for a short time for initial starting or sudden overload. For emergency service where standard power is unavailable (time at full load not to exceed 5% of the duty cycle).


Rating Conditions Diesel Engines — up to 7.1 liter All rating conditions are based on ISO/TR14396, inlet air standard conditions with a total barometric pressure of 100 kPa (29.5 in Hg), with a vapor pressure of 1 kPa (.295 in Hg), and 25°C (77°F). Performance measured using fuel to EPA specifications in 40 CFR Part 1065 and EU specifications in Directive 97/68/EC with a density of 0.845-0.850 kg/L @ 15°C (59°F) and fuel inlet temperature 40°C (104°F).


Diesel Engines — greater than 7.1 liter All rating conditions are based on SAE J1995, inlet air standard conditions of 99 kPa (29.31 in Hg) dry barometer and 25°C (77°F) temperature. Performance measured using a standard fuel with fuel gravity of 35° API having a lower heating value of 42,780 kJ/kg (18,390 btu/lb) when used at 29°C (84.2°F) with a density of 838.9 g/L.
