Delphi Multec® 20 GDi Fast Single Coil Fuel Injector

The Delphi Multec® GDi Fast Single Coil Fuel Injector is designed
for gasoline direct injection engines and features a fast single coil,
ideal for spray stratified lean combustion applications. It provides
outstanding spray and fuel injection performance at a lower cost
than piezo injector technology. It also features an outwardly opening
valve group actuated by a solenoid and operating at 200 bar fuel

The Delphi Multec 20 GDi Fast Single Coil Fuel Injector's operating
principle is based on an outwardly opening valve group that
generates a conical spray pattern. At precisely timed intervals, fuel
is injected into the combustion chamber—near the spark plug—
when the valve is closed and, thus, enables an optimally stratified
mixture plume. The resulting efficiently atomized fuel spray has a
superior spray quality (i.e. atomization and penetration), which
supports the demands of stratified combustion in order to achieve
greater engine operating efficiency.
Delphi Multec® 20 GDi Fast Single Coil
Benefits Fuel Injector

y Fast single coil design offers a better value compared to piezo technology
y Spray stratified direct injection features total drive cycle fuel economy improvements up to 15 – 20% compared to
base engines
y Outwardly opening valve group provides excellent spray stability (cone shape) with robust established recirculation
zone and a minimum sensitivity to tip deposit formation
y 50 V drive allows use of an industry standard driver and enables application of multiple injections with a hydraulic
separation of less than 0.2 ms
y Enhanced linear flow range provides improved stratification capability and is suitable for turbo-charged engines
y Corrosion resistance, flow performance, and linear range to accommodate the requirements of ethanol fuel blends

Typical Applications

The Delphi Multec 20 GDi Fast Single Coil Fuel Injector can be applied to all gasoline engines, and is
particularly suited for larger displacement gasoline engines in which fuel consumption is of greater concern.
The large linear flow makes it ideally fitting to even homogeneous turbo-charged applications and the
excellent atomization is able to optimally fulfill the needs of future combustion processes such as gasoline
homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) or controlled auto-ignition (CAI).


The Delphi Multec 20 GDi Fast Single Coil Fuel Injector will be available to automotive customers starting
in the 2012 calendar year. Contact Delphi for further information.

Performance Advantages

Delphi's single solenoid-actuated Multec 20 GDi Fast Single Coil Injector is designed for central mount
stratified lean gasoline direct injection engine applications and provides a more cost-effective device
compared to piezo-actuated injectors. A robust spray cone, with a stable recirculation zone and fast
multiple injections, enables an outstanding stratification capability.

Due to the use of conventional solenoid-actuation, the driver hardware is the same as for homogenous
gasoline direct injection applications and therefore the electronic control unit (ECU) can also be used
without modifications.

The Delphi Advantage

Delphi has produced hundreds of millions of gasoline fuel injectors over the years for customers around the
world. That vast experience has led to product and manufacturing process improvements which have
helped eliminate contamination-related failures and provided other quality and cost advantages. Delphi's in-
depth knowledge of systems and the combustion process help optimize injector performance.

As a global leader in engine management systems technology, Delphi can help manufacturers meet
emissions requirements, improve fuel economy and enhance performance. Delphi is a source for high
value solutions and our systems approach is built into every product. Delphi's flexible engineering approach
encourages collaboration. And, Delphi has a thorough understanding of automotive markets around the
world and a global network of resources.
