How it Works
A clever way of making 200 sparks a second
Your ignition system explained.
Aspark plug is supplied with 8000 to 15,000 volts to ignite the fuel and air mixture in the cylinder. The ignition system that makes this happen is remarkably simple in principle. The clever bit is that it needs to be robust and consistent enough to reliably supply 200 precisely-timed sparks per second when the engine’s running at full chat.
