G3i - BENEFITS

2334

 

 

 

 

   G3ignitions has brought modern

   electronic ignition technology to

   magneto-fired aircraft engines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

G3i module interfaces aircraft magnetos with electronic ignition allowing the aircraft engine to be operated more efficiently, with the added safety of the original magnetos as the back up system. If the aircraft experiences a total electrical failure or the G3i module is turned off, the magneto portion of the system comes back on line to keep the engine running. As for efficiency, electronic ignition does a much better job of burning all the fuel in the cylinders, resulting in more power and less fuel consumption.

An added benefit is a cleaner running engine, which is less likely to have cylinder problems.

 

• Best Ignition Redundancy

• Uses your existing magnetos

• One system operates both magnetos independently

(Series -1 & 2)

• Interface 1 Magneto with other EI systems

(Series -SC-E)

• No need for Slick Start or Bendix Shower of Sparks

• Minimal magneto modification to upgrade your
   existing magnetos

• Standard shielded aircraft ignition harnesses

• Standard aircraft spark plugs

• Smoother engine operation

• Both ignitions in perfect synchronizing

• Reduced fuel consumption

• Faster climb rates

• Increased horsepower

• Easy starting, hot or cold, with fouled or worn plugs

• Optional ignition retard starting programs

• MSD electronic ignition technology combined with
   standard aircraft ignition systems

• Multiple Spark Discharge (MSD) 20 degrees of
   crankshaft rotation

• Single wire modification to magneto

• Reasonable cost

• Complete G3i kit with easy to follow instructions

RUNNING THE G3i (SERIES -SC-E) SYSTEM

On start up, the SC-E module will receive the signal from the E/PMAG or normal contact points depending on whether there is an impulse coupler retard lag or not. The SC-E will automatically excite the ignition to serve as a hot multiple spark discharge at 20° of crankshaft rotation while cranking. There is no need for a shower of sparks vibrator or slick start. There are different start up configurations to choose from. After the start up, there will instantly be a much more noticeable smoother idle with the system on. Both the EI and magneto will fire together in perfect sync. With the SC-E on during run up, go to the suggested specific rpm for setting the mixture and continue with the ignition cycle rpm drop left, right.  When the P/EMAG is cycled off, the left magneto will still be in EI mode and revert back to it fixed timing signal from the magneto’s points. There will be a rpm drop and the exhaust note will change when cycling from left to right ignitions because the timing of both ignitions are not sync. Next switch the SC-E system off and repeat in normal magneto mode. Remember this is the back up. At cruise, lean as normal. The fuel consumption will be reduced significantly. Starting will be much easier, hot or cold, with fouled or worn plugs – overall smoother engine operation - faster climb rates - less carbon build up in the cylinders and on the valves and better compression percentages. Spark plugs will burn much cleaner and be less susceptible to fowling. Additionally, magneto contact points wear will go to almost nothing.

The G3i will automatically excite the ignition to serve as a hot multiple spark discharge at 20° of crankshaft rotation while cranking. There is no need for a shower of sparks vibrator or slick start. There are many start up and retard configurations to choose from. After the start up, there will instantly be a much more noticeable smoother idle with the system on. Both magnetos fire together in perfect sync. With the G3i on during run up, go to the suggested specific rpm for setting the mixture and continue with the ignition cycle rpm drop left, right. There will be a very minimal rpm drop and the exhaust note will not sound so lazy when cycling from left to right ignitions. Next switch the system off and repeat in normal magneto mode. Remember this is the back up. At cruise, lean as normal. The fuel consumption will be reduced significantly in most cases average of 10%. Starting will be much easier, hot or cold, with fouled or worn plugs – overall smoother engine operation - faster climb rates - less carbon build up in the cylinders and on the valves and better compression percentages. Spark plugs will burn much cleaner and be less susceptible to fowling. Additionally, magneto contact points wear will go to almost nothing.

 

 

The G3i interfaces with most Slick &

Bendix aircraft magnetos, with very

minimal magneto modification.
