Model and Miniature Internal Combustion Ignition Systems Buzzcoil
This new buzzcoil offering provides an ideal solution for model hit & miss engines.
Buzzcoil ignitions provide a "shower of sparks" and have proven ideal for low rpm hit & miss model engines
where fuel mixtures are often inconsistent. Our new buzzcoil board uses an electronic buzzcoil
instead of the old style mechanical version found in a Model T Buzzcoil. Since an electronic buzzcoil
requires far less electrical current than an old mechanical version, battery performance is excellent.
With our buzzcoil board and a Modelignition.com coil, the battery consumption is so low that an engine
can even be run from a standard square 9 volt battery. Don't believe it? Check out the videos under the
'Video' tab in the sidebar. There you can watch a 9 volt battery run my RMC Type 'B' motor.
The main advantage of the electronic buzzcoil, however, is the ability to build a smaller installation
package than is possible with a mechanical buzzcoil. For larger models this may not be an issue,
but for those with small scale models the small form factor of the electronic buzzcoil will be
quite helpful in creating a scale display model. In fact the buzzcoil board, Modelignition.com coil,
and a standard 9 volt battery can fit in to an interior space of 2"x3"x3", making it one of the smallest
electronic buzzcoil packages available.
