Ignition Coils

In order to be operated, internal combustion engines require a system able to ignite the mixture of air and gasoline which is put into the engine and gets compressed
inside of its cylinders. This is achieved by an electric spark that is set off in the spark plug, which ignites the mixture, thereby beginning combustion. There are
different elements in such systems: a set of coils (monocoils), ignition wires and DIS type coils.

There are different types of ignition, and each corresponds to a different type of ignition coil:
  • Conventional ignition (using a switch).
  • Electronic discharge of the ignition capacitator.
  • Contactless electronic ignition, also known as “transistorised” ignition.
  • Full electronic ignition. The DIS (direct ignition system) ignition system.
The ignition coil is an electromagnetic induction device, or inductor, that forms part of an Otto or Wankel cycle alternative internal combustion
engine’s ignition. It performs the function of raising the normal on-board voltage (6V, 12V or 24V, depending on each case) by a value approximately 1,000 times
greater in order to create the electric arc or spark in the spark plug, which allows for ignition of the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber.
