SPDi Spark

2 Stroke (1 - 4 Cyl.) Starter Kit

The SPDi Spark Ignition Module Features:

  • 4 Separate Ignition Channels.
  • Long Duration Plasma Sparks to 15,000 rpm.
  • Programmable Spark Power and Spark Duration.
  • Produce Different Sparks for Cranking, Idle, Cruise, and Acceleration.
  • Crisp Throttle Response, Improved Engine Efficiency, Lower Fuel Consumption, and Lower Emissions.

SPDi’s small engine kit is designed for small 2 stroke engines used in karts, skidoos, ATVs, motorcycles etc. This kit is ideal for budget minded enthusiasts who are willing to provide the supplies to build their own wiring harness, mounting brackets and coils. The 2 Stroke (1 to 4 cylinders) Starter Engine Kit can be adapted to work with all 2 Stroke (1 to 4 cylinders) powersport applications.

SPDi Spark produces a long duration plasma spark that supports combustion with ionization. The spark duration is programmable; you can create a short high energy spark or long duration plasma to support the entire burning process. The increased burn duration and plasma ionization help extract all of the energy from the fuel.

 

ECU Interface

The SPDi ignition module is designed to work with an ECU.  We are currently working on a distributor based system that will be available in 2013.

 

Hardware

The SPDi module is micro controller based with user programmable memory.  The flexibility of the hardware allows it to be continuously upgraded with new features.

 

Programming

SPDi is a user programmable ignition system. SPDi can be programmed to provide variable spark energy at different engine operating conditions. The SPDi Manager software allows the user to upgrade the firmware and change spark profiles.
