Re: Electronic Ignition Install - No Spark from Coils
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Not sure if Klaus uses Hall sensors or not, or if it even matters, but there may be a high pass filter on the input from the sensor, that effectively blocks the signal if the magnet does not move past the sensor fast enough. This could be a safety feature to prevent the engine from firing when RPM is below a certain speed. I am just guessing here, but the board that he has in the system is certainly capable of doing this if he wanted to, and it would be a smart thing to do to prevent the engine from kicking back. To test this, you could disable your fuel system, hook an automotive timing strobe to your coil output and then crank the starter to watch the strobe to see if you are getting firing pulses. My uninformed 2-cents worth….

As we wait for Klaus to get back with us, I thought I would throw it out to this group. As many know, I am installing a Lightspeed Plasma III electronic ignition system in my Q200. Following the instructions, we have followed the steps and got to the point where we are rotating the prop to get the spark from the coils. No spark so we are troubleshooting as best we can including reviewing the instructions for any missed steps.
