Ignition 8mm Cable data sheet

Silicone Reactive Core Cable

 Ultra Sparks Our own-brand premium cable used in the majority of our high performance lead sets. The core consists of a fibreglass base coated with a ferromagnetic compound and tightly wound with a stainless steel resistance wire under a coat of conductive lacquer. The design ensures maximum spark quality with minimum voltage loss while maintaining excellent Electro Magnetic Pulse suppression.

Ignition 7mm Cable data sheet

Our own-brand cable. High spark quality. Lower suppression. Generally used for lead sets which have long runs where conventional suppressed cables are liable to voltage drop. Maglite® core consists of a fibreglass base strengthened with additional aramid fibres, tightly wound with stainless steel resistance wire and covered with a specially developed acrylic conductive coat.

Copper Core Cable 7 mm

Ignition cable with a stranded copper core is used where electromagnetic suppression is not a consideration or where suppression is controlled by resistive cable connections to the spark plug or distributor / coil. Copper core cable guarantees the best spark quality with no voltage loss but requires some additional means of suppression if the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) is to be contained
