The Direct Ignition Advantage
What separates Electromotive's sophisticated Engine Control
from those of other manufacturers, is its patented, industry leading Direct
Fire Ignition system. With both the stand-alone HPX ignition systems and
the Total Engine Control systems, Electromotive utilizes a 58-tooth crank
trigger wheel. This “high resolution” signal feeds continuous
information to custom ignition chips so that error is virtually eliminated.
This "high resolution" circuitry is used to accurately determine
both the coil charge time and the Ignition Event in actual angular values
(degrees of crank rotation). This eliminates the dynamic error that the
competition suffers from. Others may claim ¼º degree accuracy,
but without this accurate crankshaft position information, they’re
Every Engine Control system from Electromotive uses multiple
ignition coils and advanced, automatically adjusting dwell circuits to
assure the coils are fully charged every time. The powerful spark of this
patented system delivers this full spark energy directly to the plugs
without misfires. Unlike multi-spark CD systems that from around 3000
RPM just give you a single very short duration spark, Electromotive puts
a full 150mJ of spark energy to the plugs with a spark duration more than
ten times the duration of a CD spark from idle to 9600 RPM. This long
duration spark makes more power!
FIRST SOLUTION: the C.D.(Capacitive Discharge) Ignition. This Ignition
does not CHARGE the Ignition Coil, rather it uses the 1:100 Winding ratio
as a TRANSFORMER. First the 12 volts of your electrical system is converted
to 200-500 volts and stored in a CAPACITOR, when the SPARK is needed the
CAPACITOR is DISCHARGED into your Ignition Coil, Instantly producing a
SPARK of 30,000 to 50,000 volts with a DURATION of only 0.1 to 0.3 milliseconds
(0.0003 seconds).. this is NOT A LONG SPARK !
SUPERIOR SOLUTION: Multiple Coil Ignition Systems. By using an
Ignition Coil for every pair of companion Cylinders, the TIME available
to CHARGE an Ignition coil goes up by a factor of 4 on an 8cyl Engine.
This allows you to use the advantages inherent in an INDUCTIVE SPARK..
this uses only enough voltage to ARC the gap of the Spark Plug and dissipates
the rest of the SPARK ENERGY in DURATION ! up to over 2 Milliseconds (that's
over 90 degrees at 8000 RPM) This MAKES MORE POWER !
So, no matter which of our Products you choose, you will always
know that the Ignition System is STATE OF THE ART and READY FOR ANYTHING
Current Product Offerings:
The TEC combines state-of-the-art fuel injection with the industry
leading Direct Ignition System, replacing the existing carburetor or fuel
injection system, ignition, distributor and coil. The use of advanced, digital
computer based technology offers the absolute best power delivery, smoothest
driveability and lowest emissions possible.
Unlike any other fuel control system, TEC needs only two inputs to
establish the base fuel curve. Where other systems rely on huge tables that
must be filled with individual pulse width values, TEC is based on thermodynamically
linear fuel delivery. You get up and running quicker with greater flexibility
and better results than any other system available.
