Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Inductive discharge ignition systems were developed in the 19th century as a means to ignite the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber of internal combustion engines. The first versions were magnetos, which were offered as a more effective alternative to the older-design hot-tube ignitors that had been utilized earlier on hot tube engines. With the advent of small stationary engines; and with the development of the automobile, engine-driven tractors, and engine-driven trucks; first the magneto and later the distributor-type systems were utilized as part of an efficient and reliable engine ignition system on commercially-available motorized equipment. These systems were in widespread use on all cars and trucks through the 1960s. Manufacturers such as Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Citroen, Mercedes, John Deere, International Harvester, and many others incorporated them into their products. The inductive discharge system is still extensively used today. Most people today are familiar with it as a "points-type" ignition system.show more
