Clutchless Compact Variable Compressor Saves Space and Energy
Compressors are commonly referred to as the heart of a vehicle's air conditioning system. Delphi's CVC compressors are based on a swash plate simple harmonic motion mechanism and come in a wide range of displacement offerings.
Delphi's latest generation CVC compressor features an energy-saving six piston continuously variable mechanism and is clutchless, allowing for significant weight reduction and better fuel efficiency. External electronic control of the compressor capacity allows for optimum integration with vehicle powertrains and more fuel-efficient air conditioning load management.
"We're proud to support Volkswagen and Audi and are eager to supply them with a state-of-the-art product," Steven Kiefer, managing director of European operations, Delphi Thermal & Interior, said. "Delphi's clutchless CVC compressor helps deliver maximum passenger comfort with quiet operation, a key selling point for consumers. It also improves fuel economy which translates into bottom-line savings for drivers at the pump."
With six compressor manufacturing facilities worldwide, Delphi supplies both fixed and variable displacement compressors to automakers in North America, Asia, Europe, South America and Australia. In addition to components, Delphi engineers fully integrated climate control and powertrain cooling systems for its customers.
