Any Electronic Ignition System requires signals from the Crankshaft and/or from the Camshaft. These events are sensed by teeth, pins or holes on the flywheel and magnets or holes on the camshaft.
These events are being picked up by the appropriate pickups:
- Magnetic Pickup (MPU)
- Hall Effect Pickup
- Inductive Pickup
The generated signal will be used by the ignition controller to calculate the position of the camshaft, crankshaft as well as the speed of the rotating equipment.
