DIY programmable ignition

Post by JanBros » Thu Aug 10, 2017 10:45 pm

I had a cheapisch chinese prog. igntion that worked for 1 year and then died. was looking at building one myself (you can find some on the net ) but they wer to complicated for me to understand. at one moment I decided to search in french (I always serched in egnlish), and bingo :!:

http://a110a.free.fr/SPIP172/article.ph ... rticle=142

had it working today (in a test setup). last problem to solve was that the coil from the moped's primary resistance was too small (almost none). after talking to a guy in the electronics-shop, I thought about this (he pointed me in that direction) and tried a coil from a ZZR600 (4ohm primary), and it works 8)

it's easy to built, cheap and easy to program, what's not to like :lol:

the 1GT101DC hall sensor is quite expensive though (about 50 euro, if you use the other type mentionned in the page it's much cheaper), but I found another oen almost identical at +/- half the price that works to http://m.littelfuse.com/~/media/electro ... et.pdf.pdf

just in case anybody else want's to built one. if you need help with the french, just ask ;-)

if one knows the arduino-stuff and the programming, should also be easy to make a controller for the KIPS.

:mrgreen:

basicly :
you built the thing
you programe the arduino (just copy-paste "logiciel" = software)
in the software, there are 6 basic adjustments, of which 4 are simple settings that never need to change after and then you have 2 lines with numbers : rpm and degree.

one can set as many rpm-points as one whiches.
