GT8 IGNITION MODULE Engine Controls

 

Introduction

The GT8 is a feature-packed module that delivers up to 3,000 microseconds of continuous spark duration using inductive ignition technology. Use on almost any gas engine make and model from 1 to 8 cylinders – even engines with 2 coils per cylinder. This includes both 2 and 4 stroke engines that are rich-burn, lean-burn, naturally aspirated, turbocharged, piston scavenged or blower models. Fuel types include natural gas, propane, LPG, landfill, digester and other biogas, synthetic and exotic fuels as well as dual fuel models.

Engines operating with strict emission compliance requirements will benefit as well.

Timing can be adjusted globally, by individual cylinder or with a set of five load-input maps that are easy to set up and customize using the Windows®-based software. The timing input signal can be from an existing OEM cam disc, the A3 or A5 conversion kit, GM distributor timing kit or the standard Gill timing disc and pickup. For all the capabilities, please review the Technical Specifications section.
