Delphi Kokomo Technical Center Environmental Testing

Delphi conducts testing that subjects components to a variety of environmental conditions, including varying temperature and humidity.

Utilizing the latest technology, Delphi offers environmental testing services. Our experienced engineers develop testing programs for many different types of products, including:

  • Complex engine controllers
  • Hybrid vehicle battery assemblies
  • Radar systems
  • Sensors
  • Entertainment products
  • Other Non-Automotive products
