Delphi has launched its own diagnostic tools platform for the aftermarket.

At the Equip Auto show in Paris this week, Delphi unveiled its Linked Diagnostics System. The company says its platform takes ‘being connected’ in the workshop to a whole new level.

Utilising TecDoc software, technicians can plug the unit into the universal connector in vehicles to get an immediate readout of technical errors. As well as determining fault codes the unit also guides technicians to the suspected fault.

Technicians then have the choice to order spare parts directly through TecDoc. Delphi says this will be the first unit to offer diagnostics and ordering through TecDoc in one step.

Delphi has also collaborated with TecDoc on another project, the WebCat – an internet-based catalogue detailing product applications and lines.

The past eighteen months has been very profitable for Delphi, as the company reports doing $35 billion worth of business.

The company’s Mike Rayne said: “As vehicles move from being the traditional mechanical model into a more electrically based unit, it represents a struggle for the technician. This is all about brining the technician along, it’s about Delphi participating in the natural evolution of the industry.”
