Altronic I ignition consists of a permanent magnet alternator unit, one or more remote mounted pickups sensing crankshaftreferenced timing magnets and an ignition coil for each spark plug. The system alternator provides the power for the electronic box mounted to it. The electronic box rectifies the alternator’s AC voltage to DC, stores the energy in a capacitor, then releases the stored energy through an SCR electronic switch to the ignition coil(s). The alternator performs no timing function and can be either belt or coupling driven. Timing is permanently set by timing magnets placed in the flywheel or a crankshaft mounted disc. Long maintenance-free service is assured since the alternator’s oversized ball bearing is the only moving part. All electronic parts plus the ignition and pick-up coils are encapsulated in epoxy. Two basic systems are available using different electronic box configurations: – For 1-3 cylinder horizontal engines using flywheel mounted magnets. – For 2-6 cylinder engines using an aluminum timing disc.
