Delphi Multec Electronic Fuel Injection Helping Chinese All-Terrain Vehicle Maker Achieve Emission Goals


SHANGHAI -- Delphi Corp. (Pinksheets: DPHIQ) has announced that it will supply Linhai Group—a leading China-based all-terrain vehicle (ATV) producer and exporter—with its environmentally-friendly Multecµ electronic fuel injection (EFI). The Delphi system for Linhai, which controls the air, fuel, and spark delivery in engines, is designed to help the company’s ATVs exported to European and North American markets meet increasingly stringent emission standards.

“From a Delphi perspective, we are seeing segments outside the automotive industry—including motorcycle and scooter manufacturers—working hard to reduce the exhaust emissions of their products,” said Kevin Quinlan, Delphi Powertrain Systems’ Asia Pacific lead executive. “Manufacturers are turning to Delphi for the cost-effective Multec EFI system not only to help reduce emissions, but also to enhance performance, reliability, and fuel economy.”

Delphi China serves as Delphi’s global center of expertise for one- and two-cylinder engine management system (EMS) development and manufacturing. Delphi’s China Technical Center, located in Shanghai, is the company’s global engineering center for one- and two-cylinder EMS. That team services customers in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia. In addition, manufacturing facilities in Beijing, Shanghai and Suzhou are the primary centers for Multec EFI production.

Designed to help manufacturers meet exhaust and evaporative emissions requirements for one- and two-cylinder engines, the Delphi Multec EFI system boasts a number of specially-tailored, green features including dual oxygen sensors, which enable closed-loop control for each cylinder independently, and the ability to accommodate flex fuel (E85 in the United States, E100 in Brazil) operation with up to 100 percent ethanol fuel content along with fuel injectors that posses anti-plugging features. Multec EFI eliminates the often-frustrating choke, improving start-ability and increasing potential horsepower by up to 10 percent.

The new system also includes specifically-designed components for one- and two-cycle engines, including:
# A mechanical throttle body that integrates an idle speed control valve and integrated air temperature-pressure sensor.
# A 16-bit Engine Control Module comes in a small package size with flexible mounting options.
# Specially-designed ignition coils feature more reliable combustion than magnetos, enabling electronic spark timing control.
# A compact, in-tank or in-line fuel pump was developed which features low current consumption.
# A compact mini oxygen sensor to enhance packaging alternatives.

Delphi has more than eight years of experience serving motorcycle and power equipment manufactures around the world. In October 2008, Delphi announced that it had been selected by Kohler Co. to help develop a new EFI system for the Command PROµ and Aegisµ commercial engines. Additionally, Delphi has supplied EFI components to Harley-Davidson for several years.

“We continue to broaden our range of potential non-automotive applications so that more customers can benefit from Delphi’s long heritage of leading automotive technologies, global manufacturing and engineering capabilities,” said Quinlan. “Our expanding presence in the motorcycle industry is another indication of Delphi’s growing success in supplying adjacent markets.”
