Things are happening in the electronic ignition system world at the moment.
Manufacturers such as PVL, Selettra, Vape, CGC-Tronic and some other tuning component manufacturers such as e.g. Malossi, Polini, Pederzini, Top Performances brought some new, more efficient ignition systems and tuning ignition systems plus speed limiters and dechoking modules onto the market in January 2003. The aspirations of engine manufacturers, engine tuners and racing drivers are constantly increasing and the trend is towards using ignitions systems which are insensitive to jolting and absolutely insensitive to extreme conditions e.g. water, mud and heat.
The engine manufacturers are increasing their engine outputs and in turn engine speeds which are often in the region of 20,000 rpm. New materials in engine construction are leading to compressions which often have a 15:1 compression ratio and this is leading to new demands on manufacturers of carburettors and ignition systems amongst other things. Great demands are being placed on ignition systems in the new, up and coming types of racing sports such as Supermoto, MiniBike, karting and scooter racing. Depending on the track and weather conditions, drivers want to be sure that they have the optimum engine performance, and therefore various ignition system manufacturers have reacted and developed digital ignition systems (magnet, battery), which enable programming of various ignition curves to facilitate rapid switching e.g. by selector switch on the motorbike handlebars. Of course, these ignition curves must not be purely theoretical but must be tested beforehand in a trial run together with other engine components.
The generation of individual curves is mostly undertaken by the engine tuner or engine manufacturer, who must have vast experience in order to be able to achieve an optimum result. Programming is carried out by the engine tuner using a programming unit similar to a PC system. This happens mostly as a technical service, as programming systems are still very expensive at present.
It is also possible for a customer to come to our laboratory with clear ideas about the ignition curve and have the required curve programmed. The ignition system manufacturers are already promising today a new ignition system generation for the year 2003, which should be presented at various trade fairs in January 2003. We will keep you up-to-date on this subject. We will be pleased if you have confidence in us and trust the efficiency of the PVL ignition systems. dokutec GmbH has had confidence in PVL ignition systems "Made in Germany" for years.
PVL ignition systems are used successfully worldwide in different types of engines. PVL ignitions have been number one without doubt in karting for years. Webasto, Polaris, Bombardier Rotax, Toro, Mercury, BMW, Dolmar, IAME, Vortex, Simson, MZ, Jawa, Fichtel & Sachs, GM and Triumph are some of PVL's most well-known customers.
PVL Ignition Systems stand for quality, high variability and performance and an excellent price performance ratio.
