Delphi – Electronic Injector Test Kit
Claimed to be the first of its kind, this innovative product created quite a ‘buzz’ with technicians who were looking for a quick and easy way of diagnosing issues with a Common Rail solenoid injector.
Coupled with the Injector Solvent Cleaner – which cleans the internal components of the valve without removing the injector – the Electronic Injector Test Kit helps deliver a quick diagnostic solution and can also be used to resolve the specific issue of early-stage injector lacquering.
Delphi’s handheld device measures the resistance and inductance of the injector coil together and can also check for an open coil or short circuit, plus the insulation of the coil to the injector body. This drives the valve and gives the technician an audible buzzing signal.
