Gammatronix PowerDriver Ignition System
6v (SIX VOLT) NEGATIVE Earth Version
Revitalise your older Car or Motorcycle: Fit a Gammatronix PowerDriver Ignition Module and get these improvements to your vehicle....
- Higher spark energy and voltage output without changing your existing coil
- Points wear virtually eliminated
- Improved economy and power due to accurate spark timing and increased voltage
- Sharper rev response of the engine
- No spark erosion at points, and no condenser to fail.
- 8 Amp (down to 1 ohm) coil driving capacity – 20 Amps peak
THE PowerDriver Ignition Solution
Most new cars and larger motorcycles dont use points or a coil at all – they use "coil on plug" units, basically a miniature coil for EACH plug, and these contain an advanced driver semiconductor device for high output.
Older vehicles can take advantage of this new device's fast, high output nature, by adding this technology between their existing single coil and points – you keep the points, remove the condenser, and get points that can last up to 50,000 miles and a big output from your coil.
The Gammatronix PowerDriver contains all its control electronics in a compact assembly just 30mm wide, 20mm tall and 85mm long. This can be mounted to your existing coil or any other convenient mounting point.
Just four wires to connect – red power, black ground, then snip the wire from your points to your coil and connect the points side to the PowerDriver's blue wire and the coil side to the PowerDriver's yellow output wire.
PowerDriver gives you a control system that collapses the flux in your coil in millionths of a second to create a fat, precise, well timed spark that doesnt vary with arcing across the points, or alter over time due to spark erosion.
How Does It Work?
Conventional coil and points based systems on older bikes and cars suffer from several disadvantages due to system inefficiencies.
The presence of the condenser, sparking at the points and slow coil "magnetic flux dump" time of a conventional ignition system leads to a less than optimal output from the coil. The physics are that the faster the coil primary voltage disconnects, (leading to a rapid collapse of stored inductive flux in the coil) the higher the peak voltage output of the coil will be.
The Gammatronix PowerDriver Ignition eliminates the inefficiencies in your ignition system by charging the coil rapidly and dumping the stored coil primary flux FAST to make a bigger, better, more precisely timed spark.
Is It Right For My Vehicle?
It is if you can say YES to the following questions :
1. My vehicle has a standard coil and points and condenser ignition powered from the battery (NOT a magneto - see below)
2. My vehicle has a 6v electrical system
3. My vehicle has the battery negative terminal connected to the chassis (negative earth)
Unit is compact, at only 85 x 30 x 18mm in size.
The Gammatronix PowerDriver Module comes in negative earth only, and as a 6v or 12v model – please make sure you buy the correct unit for your vehicle's voltage – check the title of this listing to be sure you are buying a compatible version. THIS IS FOR THE 6V (SIX VOLT) VERSION.
Unit comes with full printed installation instructions and mounting ties.
All units have a 12 month warranty.
A note on magneto ignition systems: Vehicles with a magneto (such as small motorcycles and industrial engines) are easy to spot. Disconnect the battery - and does the engine still start? If it does, the ignition is directly powered from a winding on the generator (called a magneto) and isnt suitable for this unit. PowerDriver is intended to be used on engines with conventional coil - points - battery setup. If in doubt, ask us, we may be able to help.
