What is the difference between points and electronic ignition?
People also ask, what is the major difference between electronic and contact point ignition systems?
ELECTRONIC IGNITION SYSTEM The primary circuit in a contact point ignition system is open and closed by contact points. In the electronic system, the primary circuit is open and closed by the electronic control unit (ECU). The secondary circuits are practically the same for the two systems.
Subsequently, question is, what are the advantages of an electronic ignition system? Advantages of Electronic Ignition System: It has fewer moving parts. Low maintenance required. Less emission generates. Efficiency is good.
One may also ask, what is an electronic ignition system?
Electronic ignition system is the type of ignition system that uses electronic circuit,usually by transistors controlled by sensors to generate electric pulses which in turn generate better spark that can even burn the lean mixture and provide better economy and lower emission.
Does electronic ignition have a condenser?
The condenser is used to prevent premature point wear, but even with the best condenser, points require frequent maintenance. Sometime in the 70's, standard ignition systems started being replaced by "electronic" ignition systems. Instead, the primary circuit signal is distributed to a series of ignition coils.
