Beck Technologies: Spark Ignition Systems

We can custom make model T based ignition systems to order, the model T buzz coil is a simple, rugged, self contained system designed to survive constant use in harsh weather and bumpy road conditions. It produces many sparks a second and is an excellent way to start all types of alternative energy engines and pulsejet engines.
We can custom make them with any number of types of switches such as LED safety toggle switches, momentary push buttons, and LED rocker switches, and even arming keys to activate the system. All our ignition systems use newly manufactured coils.
Why use an ignition system from a car from 100 years ago? Because the model T ford 'buzz coil' ignition coil is a simple, rugged, reliable self contained unit. It was designed to run continuously for long periods of time while being bumped around on rough roads and in bad weather.
It produces many sparks a second, which is perfect for starting all kinds of engines, like pulsejets. With the high frequency spark, the pulsejet will ignite quickly and easily.
With cheap sparking systems that produce only one or two sparks a second, the spark must be timed with the proper fuel air mixture ratio at just the right time. High frequency sparks on the other hand will ignite the proper fuel air mixture as soon as it contacts the spark. If you need a reliable system that will last for decades, model T based ignition systems are the way to go.
Another thing with pulsejet engines, is that the spark plug gap can be wider than normal engines. The wider the gap the more exposure it will have.
The model T coil produces a good hot spark that can ignite liquid fuels like kerosene or diesel fuel, but is still relatively safe. If you get shocked accidentally with it, its painful, but thousands of times safer than transformers. NEVER attempt to use high voltage neon or TV / microwave transformers, they can kill you faster than you can blink.
Check out our site and email us for a quote, prices vary with type of construction, switches, etc. $100-$125 typical. Currently ignition systems are for the USA only.
We do not sell the coils in an unfinished state, there's no point in us purchasing coils, paying shipping, only to resell and reship them for no profit.
