What are Delphi tools?
Delphi tools are a specific set of tools that have been designed to work with pin and sleeve terminals. More accurately, they work with Delphi pin and sleeve terminals. Delphi tools, when used with Delphi terminals and seals, create environmentally sealed, disconnect-able connections. These inline connections can only be achieved by using the proper tools. This is why we carry Delphi tools. They are an important part of multiple industries and as such, they are important to our customers.

Pacer carries the most useful Delphi tools so that you can find the type you need. From crimpers to specialized removal tools, we have the best options in stock. Before selecting the Delphi tool you need, let us take a look at what types of tools are available.
Where are these products implemented?
Delphi tools handle jobs other tools cannot
Delphi tools are implemented in applications where Delphi terminals and connectors are used. This can include production lines, field service, repair shops, and even private garages. Delphi tools are ideal for use when replacing or maintaining installations as well as when installing new equipment. If you currently have damaged Delphi tools or broken Delphi tools, then these are the perfect choice. All you will need are the proper connectors, electrical parts, and wire. Now that we have looked at where these tools are implemented, let us take a look at what types are available.
What types of Delphi tools are available?
Delphi tools are available in several different styles including crimpers and removal tools to meet the needs of various electrical connections. Below we will take a quick look at the different types of Delphi tools and where you might want to use them.
The Delphi crimper MP 150/280 is ideal for use with metri-pack 150 or 280 series terminals. This tool is designed to crimp the core and insulation wings in a separate motion. Simply place the terminal over the stripped wire and place the core of the terminal into the proper nest on the tool. Close the tool to achieve the proper crimp. Now you repeat the same process with the wings, and you are done.
Our Delphi WP core crimping tool is built to crimp terminals and seals in a single motion. This ratchet style crimper is made to work with: Weather-Pack Series, 20-14 AWG. Additionally, it is made to work with metri-Pack 280 Series 20-14 AWG terminals once the terminal locator has been removed. This tool is known for its repeatability and longevity making it the perfect choice for use on field service or in hazardous job sites.
Once inserted into a connector, Delphi terminals are made to stay there. That is unless you have the weather pack terminal remover. With this tool, you can easily remove terminals from your connector. To use the tool, you would depress the terminal retention bar with the tip of the tool and extract the terminal. It really is that easy. The weather pack terminal remover is built to work with all three sizes of weather pack terminals 22-18 AWG, 16-14 AWG, and 12-10 AWG.
Where would I use Delphi tools?
Delphi tools are found anywhere you find Delphi terminals. This includes places in the marine industry, automotive industry, transportation industry, and industrial job sites. Each tool is built to handle repeated use and has been designed for longevity. Since they are made to help create environmentally sealed connections using Delphi terminals, Delphi tools have been made to be equally durable. This is why they are trusted by so many industry professionals.
What advantages do Delphi tools offer?
Delphi tools offer multiple advantages of which the most important is the fact that they, and they alone, can properly terminate Delphi pin and sleeve terminals. The ratcheting action that they offer, guarantees the exact crimp pressure each and every time you use them. In this way, you are sure to create the toughest environmentally sealed connections possible. Aside from that fact, Delphi tools are also known for their repeatability, durability, and longevity. These factors combine to create superior tools that are unmatched in their abilities.
Can I use Delphi tools on pins and sockets?
Delphi tools work optimally on the terminals that they have been designed for. As stated above, these include things such as Delphi pin and sleeve terminals. In some instances, sleeve terminals can be referred to as socket terminals, but this is where you have to be careful. These tools are made to work with Delphi terminals exclusively. They are built to be the best choice when handling Delphi pin and sleeve terminals and that is where they excel.
