The PerTronix Ignitor is a precisely engineered solid state breakerless ignition system. Consisting of permanently mounted magnets for each cylinder. Rotating with the rotor these magnets trigger an electronic chip (Hall Cell) which is embedded int eh switching module. The entire Ignitor system is immune to dirt, oil, heat and moisture. Firing down to zero RPMs it switches twice the energy of conventional systems. Installation is fast and simple. The Ignitor requires no "black boxes" or complicated wiring and can be installed int he time required to change a set of points.
