Ignition Control System PHLOX II

PHLOX II Ignition Control Systems are built around the IC ignition control unit and include all integrant parts like ignition coils, ignition rails, pickup sensors, trigger discs and spark plugs. Suitable for all types of gas engines, PHLOX ignition system components can be precisely adjusted to the specific engine requirements and guarantee long lifetime and reliable operation.
Together with the components for air-fuel ratio control and speed control , the HEINZMANN range provides a complete solution for gas engine management. Please also refer to HEINZMANN's Gas Engine Management Catalogue for details on all ignition control systems.

Component Description Documents
Ignition control unit
PHLOX ignition control unit
PHLOX IC-24 ignition control unit

High-energy capacity spark ignition control unit. Available for different engine sizes:

IC08 - for up to 8 cylinders
IC12 - for up to 12 cylinders
IC16 - for up to 16 cylinders
IC24 - for up to 24 cylinders, based on two IC12 control units in Master-Slave operation

  • Processing of up to 2 Hall or inductive pickup sensors for precise ignition timing
  • 32 adjustable levels of ignition energy to reduce spark plug wear
  • Range of I/Os for easy integration into engine management systems
  • CAN bus connection for extended monitoring and control features
  • Analogue input for spark angle offset can be connected to knock control system ADRIADNE or the like
  • Optionally and depending on pickup configuration, misfiring level can automatically adapt the energy level in order to extend spark plug life and assure optimum engine performance
  • On-board diagnostics for safe operation
  • CSA certified
