Optimal control technology for any type of gas engine

As it triggers the combustion process of the air-fuel mixture, the ignition system has major influences on performances and emissions of gas fuelled engines. With PHLOX Ignition Control Systems HEINZMANN offers complete solutions tailored for all types of gas engines;

All needed components, such as ignition control units, coils, cable harnesses, trigger discs, sensors and spark plugs, are available in an integrated solution.

Ignition Control Unit

The flexible PHLOX II control unit with capacitive ignition and high ignition energy lies at the heart of the HEINZMANN ignition systems. Available in three versions, the control unit is suitable for engines with a maximum of 8, 12 or 16 cylinders. Two control units can be used to actuate engines with up to 24 cylinders. PHLOX ensures precise ignition timing and that the mixture ignites well. The variable ignition energy and the self-diagnosis function reduce the wear on the spark plugs, thereby increasing their service life.

Technical data

  • Number of cylinders: up to 8 (IC-08), up to 12 (IC-12, IC-12A, IC-12B), up to 16 (IC-16, IC-16A, IC-16B)
  • Speed: 30 ... 3000 rpm
  • Spark duration: 300 ... 600 µs
  • Spark energy: 25 ... 280 mJ (32 levels)

Coils & Rails

High-performance ignition coils with optimised output power and a separate earth connection are the perfect accessories to complement the HEINZMANN PHLOX II ignition control unit. They enable high output voltages when the engine is run continuously and are suitable for temperatures up to 125°C.
On the pre-assembled ignition rails, the coils are mounted directly on the rail. The cables are protected inside the rail profile, ensuring a long service life and reliable operation.

Ignition leads

Spark plug connectors made of high-quality Teflon are resistant to high temperatures and voltages, and offer ideal insulation against sparks.

Spark plugs

The special industrial spark plugs for stationary gas engines feature iridium-reinforced electrodes to ensure a long service life and reliable operation.

Speed sensors

Both inductive sensors and Hall sensors are available with different lengths and thread sizes. Thanks to their robust design, inductive sensors are ideal for use in harsh ambient conditions.
Compared to inductive sensors, the advantage of Hall sensors is that the output signal is independent of the speed and the distance from the sensor.

Trigger discs

Trigger discs are available in various designs to cover all possible applications.

Software

The DcDesk software is a configuration and visualisation tool for all digital HEINZMANN systems. It comes with all functions for commissioning, monitoring and maintenance/diagnosis.
