DELPHI LAUNCHES NEW TAILORED DIAGNOSTIC SOLUTIONS
Delphi widens its diagnostic range offer with new high performance solutions
CERGY, France — No matter the selected platform (PDA, Ultra-Mobile PC or Tablet PC), Delphi
enables the repairer to increase its performance and thereby improve its diagnostic activity.
The DS100E – the most compact diagnostic solution from Delphi – keeps its initial PDA format and
now includes the latest generation PC platform, which is more communicant (Wi-Fi as well as
Bluetooth) and has increased memory. Its TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) screen offers better contrast
and improved brightness, providing optimal readability.
In order to provide a tailored solution for each customer, Delphi has added brand new software
to its range that is compatible with the UMPC (Ultra-Mobile PC) platform. Equipped with a 7-
inch, high-contrast screen (twice as big as a Pocket PC screen), it can still be held with one hand
by the technician.
Its technical characteristics demonstrate its advanced performance. Its 60 GB hard drive enables
the customer to install his own software solutions, additional technical data and additional audio &
video accessories to satisfy the latest technology addicts. Finally, with its two built-in video-
cameras (one at the front and the second at the back), the end-user will be able to take pictures
and exchange information more easily with the Delphi technical support teams.
The new UMPC platform can be selected as part of a DS350E or DS500E kit. Delphi has also
upgraded the Tablet PC sold with these kits.
Using either of these two handsets, customers with Wi-Fi access will be able to download software
updates directly from the Internet and will thereby benefit from the newest information first.

With its 12, 1-inch screen the new Tablet PC is much larger than its predecessor, and provides
―View Anywhere‖ technology. The customer can now clearly read the data on the screen
regardless of angle and the brightness of the environment. Its robust magnesium alloy chassis is
reinforced by the use of a shock-proof and splash-proof rugged case, making it an extremely
resistant device. Once again, the tablet PC’s improved processor and overall capabilities permit
professional use for the repairer’s daily activities.
Using a diagnostic tool has become compulsory for the independent aftermarket actors. Thanks to
the depth of its range Delphi enables its customers to perform all diagnostic operations: from so-
called ―traditional‖ maintenance operations‖ (reading and clearing fault codes, resetting service
lights, reading real time data, driving actuators…) to complex system repair operations (via
physical measurement tools – multimeter and oscilloscope).
Each of Delphi’s new platforms provides technological improvements that ensure that all
customers will find a diagnostic solution in the Delphi range that suits their requirements. All Delphi
diagnostic tools are equipped with software covering more than 85% of the European car park –
27000 variants from 45 vehicle manufacturers. Despite their software proven and recognized
reliability, these tools are well known for their ease of use.
