ECM Templates on Cummins INSITE Software (CUMMINS Engines)

ECM Templates

Figure 1.1 - Work Orders/ ECM Images

Templates provide a convenient way to configure multiple ECMs using the same engine settings. An ECM can be adjusted to the required specifications for a fleet. An Image of that ECM can be created and converted into a template. The Template is then applied to other ECMs in that fleet, saving the time it would have taken to manually configure each ECM.

Templates are based on an existing ECM image but it contains only the adjustable Features and Parameters that can be modified within INSITE™.

Perform the following steps to create a Template:
1). Open the Work Orders window (refer to Figure 1.1 above). Read More: Work Orders on Cummins INSITE Software (CUMMINS Engines).
2). Expand a Work Order in the upper section of the Work Orders window.
3). Highlight one or more ECM Images. Multiple Images can be selected by holding the CTRL key while selecting the Images to be converted. Read More: ECM Images on Cummins INSITE Software (CUMMINS Engines).

  • Select Convert to Template(s) from the right click menu.
