Optronic Ignition KitElectronic ignition has long been recognized as a means of increasing a car's efficiency. It does this simply by burning the fuel very much more effectively than is possible with any traditional contact breaker "points" system.

Install an Electronic Ignition kit and you'll never have to replace or service the points ignition again.

Save money with reduced ongoing costs for parts and servicing, as well as from improved fuel economy.

Enjoy better performance and reliability from your car, plus improved starting in cold conditions.

HOW IT WORKS

THE OPTICAL SWITCH (MOUNTED IN THE DISTRIBUTOR)

Optronic ignition kitAn infra red light beam is detected by a silicon phototransistor. This beam is interrupted by a revolving chopper fixed to the distributor cam and has one blade for each cylinder. It is unaffected by light, dirt and dampness. The optical switch is fixed to the same plate as the points were, so that speed and vacuum advance remain unchanged.

THE POWER MODULE

This receives the electronic pulses from the optical switch and using an internal high power Darlington transistor charges the coil. The exact positioning of the chopper determines spark timing. Dwell time is determined either by the width of the chopper or internally to give variable dwell performance.

THE FITTING KIT

In order to mount the optical switch in exactly the right position in the distributor, specifically engineered mounting plates and brackets have been developed to ensure perfect installations and in the vast majority of cases, without any permanent modifications.

Installation is possible without any special tools.
