A quality ignition system can be the difference between winning and losing on Saturday night. Daytona Sensors' CD1 Capacitive Discharge ignition system gives you a slew of easy-to-use features, making it perfect for anything from a four-cylinder Mini Stock to a Sprint Cup car. The Capacitive Discharge ignition system is designed to work with four-, six-, and eight-cylinder race engines, and has a 135mJ spark energy output. The rev limiter can be set from 3,000 to 10,900 rpm in 100-rmp increments, giving you a wide range of adjustability. The CD1 system also has PC-programmable advance features ranging from a simple rpm-based advance curve to a 3-D timing map (the PC-programmable features are optional and not required). Data logging capability with 16 Mbit DataFLASH memory is built in, along with one general purpose input and two general purpose input/output terminals. Inputs can be programmed for high gear retard, vehicle speed sensor, and throttle position sensor. The ignition box has fully encapsulated construction using surface-mount electronics, making it waterproof and highly resistant to vibration and shock. A 12-pin Deutsch connector is used for signal connections. Its highly efficient switching power supply is based on a patented design. The system has less than a 5-amp current draw at 8,000 rpm, and is rated for continuous operation at 8,500 rpm and 185 degrees F (185 degrees C).
