Modern Diesel Technology: Heavy Equipment Systems is the only textbook on the market that deals exclusively with off-highway mobile equipment systems. Designed to meet the specific needs of technicians in the specialty areas of heavy equipment, agricultural equipment, and powered lift truck technology, this book marks a valuable departure from the books aimed at truck technicians and the manufacturer-produced literature that specialty technicians have had to rely on for so long. The book begins with a chapter on basic safety, and is then broken down into four sections to address the four key elements of heavy equipment systems: hydraulics, heavy duty brake systems, drive train systems, and steering, suspension, and track systems. Written by an author team with extensive experience, both as professionals in the industry and as teachers of specialty technician programs, this book will provide readers with an in-depth understanding of the skills and concepts needed to be an effective technician in this specialty field.
Modern Diesel Technology: Diesel Engines is an ideal primer for the aspiring diesel technician, using simple, straightforward language and a building block approach to build a working knowledge of the modern computer-controlled diesel engine and its subsystems. The book includes dedicated chapters for each major subsystem, along with coverage devoted to dealing with fuel subsystems, and the basics of vehicle computer control systems. Fuel and engine management systems are discussed in generic terms to establish an understanding of typical engine systems, and there is an emphasis on fuel systems used in post-2007 diesel engines. Concluding with a chapter on diesel emissions and the means used to control them, this is a valuable resource designed to serve as a foundation for more advanced studies in diesel engine technology Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Gain a sound understanding of electronically controlled diesel engines as well as maintenance and diagnostic procedures. This book uses the ASE L2 "composite" diesel engine as a platform for fostering a detailed understanding of current truck engine management systems including electronic unit injector (EUI), hydraulically actuated electronic unit injector (HEUI), electronic unit pump (EUP), time-pressure injection (HPI-TP), computer-controlled pump-line-nozzle (PLN), and diesel common rail (CR) fuel management systems. Coverage is comprehensive in scope, addressing vehicle management computers, electronic service tools (ESTs), connector and wiring repair, and the principles of multiplexing, as well as each major system of the various fuel management systems used on today's diesel powered trucks.
The most comprehensive guide to highway diesel engines and their management systems available today, Medium/Heavy Duty Truck Engines, Fuel & Computerized Management Systems, 3E is a user-friendly resource for both entry-level and experienced technicians alike. Coverage includes the full range of truck diesels, from light duty to heavy duty, as well as the most current diesel engine management electronics used in the industry. The updated third edition features all-new discussions of series and parallel hybrid drivetrains that use both electric and hydraulic hybrid technology, emerging battery and ultracapacitor technology popular in hybrid electric vehicles, expanded coverage of the new Delphi E3 injectors used in post-2007 Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel, Volvo and Mack engines, and more. With an emphasis on today’s computer technology that sets it apart from any other book on the market, this is an ideal guide to working effectively in modern truck service facilities.

Designed for the required course on hydraulics found in diesel technology and heavy equipment programs, MOBILE EQUIPMENT HYDRAULICS: A SYSTEMS AND TROUBLESHOOTING APPROACH, takes a practical approach to the understanding of fluid power / hydraulic systems. Instead of concentrating on the design issues of fluid power systems this book approaches hydraulics more like a technician would to approach a system that requires maintenance or troubleshooting. Nearly all aspiring diesel technicians receive training in this subject, which is one of seven areas of study recognized by ASE Education Foundation in diesel technology. Coverage includes a study of terminology, industrial standards, symbols and basic circuitry design as related to fluid power. Examples are drawn from actual equipment that is relevant to the program of study, whether it be heavy truck, earth-moving, or agricultural equipment.
