Electronic ignition module is sealed plastic unit that contains both ignition coil and electronic ignition components. These modules require almost no maintenance, most modules can’t be adjusted in any way. In some engines with electronic ignition modules, possible to adjust air gap. This procedure performed same way we described for non electronic magneto ignition system.
Points and condenser used for many years on power equipment. In newer engines, these components replaced by electronic ignition systems. Breaker points flawed in that they eventually wear out and fail. Electronic ignition systems use diodes, transistors, SCRs in place of mechanical switching components, so they last for very long time.
Electronic ignition systems have no moving parts, except for flywheel containing magnets, so performance of system won’t decrease through attrition. Electronic ignition modules very resistant to moisture, oil, and dirt. Are very reliable, don’t require adjustments, have very long life spans. Provide easy starting, smooth power during operation. Also generally quite inexpensive.
