Electronic 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)
An 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.
All ignition kits come with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty
DISTRIBUTOR FITTING KITS
Lumenition have engineered a complete range of distributor fitting kits that contain all the necessary choppers, adapters, screws, grommets etc, to ensure an OEM standard installation is achieved.
Most makes of distributor are covered including Lucas, Bosch, Ford, Ducellier, Mitsubishi, Motorcraft, Mallory, Nippon Denso, Hitachi, LADA, SEV, A.C. Delco.
Below is a list of the most popular makes of car that kits are available for.
There are two components to the Optronic ignition system - the Optronic Ignition Kit and a Fitting Kit. The Optronic Ignition Kit is the same price for all vehicles, but the fitting kit varies according to the make and model of the car.
Optronic Ignition Kit:
Most fitting kits are in the range AUD$30 to AUD$50, however a small number of fitting kits are more.
NOTE: Prices do not include shipping costs - which will be approximately AUD$15 depending upon location .
