I recently replaced the stator on the msd ignition for the jet ski racer, it was a giant hassle
because the parts are no longer available. A few months later the control box failed.
I have been working on my own version of an ignition system using the propeller, and
since the other ignition system failed, I was thinking about using the stator sensors
from the other system to trigger my ignition system.
But I don't understand how the sensor works, because it does not seem to work like a
hall or reed switch.
The Control box provided a low voltage to the two wires that lead to the sensor. There
no grounds that I am aware of.
It is possible there is an smd choke coil inside the sensor with a concentration glued to the
top of the coil. If that is the case, could you power the choke with both wires? Or maybe
the 2 wires had pull up resistors inside the control box.
If both leads had pull-up resistors and they used a choke coil, how could the Propeller
sense a magnet as it passes by. It would create a sine wave right???
Would you use a LM339 comparator?
Thanks for your input.
