First single-cylinder engine with electronic control receives Tier 4 final certificate

First single-cylinder engine with electronic control receives Tier 4 final certificate

This makes engines with E1 technology from Hatz pioneers in the industry

At the beginning of January, Hatz's latest generation of engines with E1 technology received their first emission certificates. This is an important milestone for the development and future of "light equipment", especially for mechanical engineering companies whose target market is North America. This is the first time that single-cylinder industrial diesel engines with electronic injection and control have been certified according to the currently valid US standard EPA Tier 4 final. The Hatz 1D90E engine is the peak performer of the range. At almost eleven kilowatts (14 horsepower), it is the most powerful single-cylinder diesel in the world. Hatz 1B50E, 1B30E and 1B30VE cover the output ranges up to around eight (11 horsepower) and five kilowatts (6 horsepower) respectively with extremely compact dimensions. 

A networked future

The E1 technology from the Lower Bavarian engine specialist Hatz is where the digitisation of compact engines begins. It paves the way for a networked future, for example, for hand-guided machines, mobile light masts or power generators. It will also provide availability of data on all engine performance characteristics, the possibility of round-the-clock localisation, evaluation of equipment utilisation or the ability to perform remote diagnostics and maintenance. With all this, Hatz bridges the gap between engines that were once mechanically controlled and the requirements of modern, digitised companies.

Award winning technology

The E1 technology has also been honoured in the USA for the 2019 achievement with the Diesel Progress Award. The jury primarily based its decision on the groundbreaking development of new technologies: "Hatz impresses with the electronic injection and control of compact, powerful engines, as well as the accompanying connectivity for the Internet of Things."
