The ignition system is used to ignite the mixture of air and fuel in the combustion engine. This system has several advantages and it is better than mechanically timed ignition systems.

  • No Moving Parts: When moving parts move, they grind with each other due to friction and this makes the moving part to wear down. But the electronic ignition system does not have any of the moving parts. As all of the operations of this system is handled by solid-state electronics, it has a longer lifespan. This makes the system more preferable.
  • Operational Improvements: It has one more advantage over a mechanically timed system as it does not need many factors for timing the spark plug activation. In this system, fuel and air mixture burnt at an optimal time.
  • Environmental Benefits: It also possesses environmental benefits because of operational improvements. The clean-burning of air and fuel mixture makes the system less polluting.
  • Does not overload the engine combustion: The electronic ignition system works electrically without power from the crankshaft and as a result, it does not overload the performance of the engine.
