A Complete Line of Ignition Products
Delphi supplies six categories of ignition products. Many combinations are available to suit different applications.
Ignition cable transfers high voltage energy from distributors/coils to spark plugs. It consists of:
Ignition terminals provide the mechanical and electrical connections between the cable core and the spark plugs, distributors, or coils. Strip and Fold is the method utilized for terminal application. This process removes insulation to expose a short length of core which is "folded" back over the outer jacket. The crimping of the terminal traps the core between the terminal and the cable.
Spark Plug Boots and Distributor⁄Coil Nipples
Spark plug boots and distributor⁄coil nipples provide environmental sealing and electrical insulation of the ignition lead connections to spark plugs, distributors, and coils. These parts must:
Heat shields are metallic⁄ceramic outer shields that provide additional temperature protection for spark plug boots.
Clips, Channels, Conduits and Other Fasteners
Clips, channels, conduits and other fasteners help maintain harness routings to keep assemblies away from moving parts, sources of heat, and areas of potential abrasion.
Designed and manufactured to help meet nearly every customer specification—domestic or global.
