Delphi announces the launch of 12 new ignition coils cover more than 9.6 million Audi, Honda, Nissan, Jaguar, BMW, GM, Hyundai, Kia, Volvo and Toyota applications from 1998 to 2012. New part numbers are: GN10322, GN10323, GN10324, GN10325, GN10326, GN10327, GN10328, GN10329, GN10330, GN10331, GN10332 and GN10334.
Ignition coils operate in a tough environment. Stresses created by vibration, temperature changes and even the failure of spark plugs and other components can cause ignition coil wiring to break or short out. The insulation inside the ignition coil can also fail, causing energy to escape.
Delphi says it backs up its innovative ignition coil design with intelligent manufacturing and uses a winding process technique to control the length of wire between adjacent windings. More length results in greater voltage differences, which can create more pressure that could break down the insulation and wire coating, the company says.
Delphi says it has analyzed the environment that ignition coils must withstand and is combating failure issues with high-quality design and materials, including high-quality wires and wire coating that resist the cracks, pin holes and imperfections that most often lead to failure issues. Delphi also uses an epoxy vacuum technique to reduce air bubbles in the epoxy, because having fewer air bubbles increases the epoxy’s insulation quality and reduces the chances of energy punch-through failures.
Inventory will be available at the end of the second quarter of 2013. Visit go.delphi.com for specific part information.
