Product Overview: 

The IntelliSpark® 32/16/8 series ignition systems are capacitive discharge, low-tension type designs. The system is capable of generating precise spark timing that improves fuel economy, load balance and ignition stability. The controller design incorporates a state-of-the-art, 16-bit, microcontroller. This technology provides users with a highly flexible solution to meet their ignition needs.

The user can choose from one of five methods of crankshaft sensing for a 4-stroke engine and two methods for a 2-stroke engine.

The Murphy ignition coils used with this controller are “smart coils” with a sense lead connection for spark plug demand voltage measurements allowing the system to:

  • Measure demand on each cylinder’s plug for diagnostic purposes.
  • Automatically control the energy delivered to the smart coils to optimize spark plug life.
  • Use the measured demand in the unique “camless” crank method to determine the compression stroke, eliminatingthe need for a camshaft sensor.

Several smart coil designs are available to accommodate specific ignition requirements including, remote mount coils and plug-mounted (integral) coils, non-hazardous or CSA C1, D2 rated versions.

This system also includes the Murphy PV-450 full color screen display for control functions, monitoring, programming, and diagnostic testing. The 8 button display includes comprehensive built-in help files and wiring information for the coil harness and a data base of common engines for ease of configuration.
