The PowerCommand® B-Series complies with the latest applicable codes and standards, such as NFPA70 (NEC), NFPA110 and NFP99. These compliances and rigorous testing ensure the PowerCommand® B-Series is built to support the performance, connectivity and reliability needs of the market.

“Over the years, we’ve seen increased grid instability and power outages. It’s imperative that life-saving applications are supported by reliable power systems and the transfer of power is quick, efficient and seamless,” Balshe noted.

With more than 80 years of experience, the PowerCommand® B-Series continues Cummins’ rich history in power transfer control. More than a product, it provides access to the company’s expertise, knowledge and network to support users every step of the way in their power journey.
