Delphi Automotive to Launch New Family of Diesel Common Rail systems

By CIOReview | Tuesday, July 15, 2014

FREMONT, CA: Delphi Automotive, an automotive parts manufacturing company has announced the launch of a new family of Diesel Common Rail systems to help manufacturers in overcoming the challenges of the automotive industry.

The new family of Diesel Common Rail systems includes diesel solenoid injectors, fuel pumps, Engine Control Units (ECU) and rails for light- and medium-duty applications. These technologies will be made available on a new engine later in this year.

Delphi’s modular approach offers innovative designs and features, new perspectives to diesel engine design and performance so as to meet the needs of different engines. The engine manufacturers therefore can integrate these technologies directly into their engine families with the possibility to optimize the injection performance in the same environment.

The diesel fuel injection equipment of the new family offers improved performance through injection pressure increased up to 2,500 bar; leakage reduction; and increased multiple injection optimization, thereby reducing fuel consumption, CO2 and other emissions.

“This new high-performance, modular family of Diesel Common Rail Systems will help car manufacturers improve fuel efficiency. Our engineers’ innovative concepts are dedicated to assisting our customers in meeting increasingly strict emissions standards, while maintaining the performance levels consumers expect,” says John Fuerst, President, Delphi Diesel Systems.

The various benefits of Delphi’s new Diesel Common Rail systems family include; Low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions through improved combustion; weight reduction; and hydraulic, mechanical and electrical efficiency. It is Cost-effective and offers flexible solutions through simpler, modular component features and optimized functions.  The most important benefit for the driver is that it makes driving more comfortable and reliable through low combustion noise and gives high performance and worldwide diesel fuel robustness.

“The fuel efficiency that diesel engines offer allows them to successfully penetrate both the passenger and commercial vehicles. Their best-in-class fuel economy will continue to ensure diesel engines are a popular choice across Europe and in many other markets,” adds Fuerst.
