TIM6 Ignition Module

A very basic electronic ignition module for hobby model engines

Kits from $17.50 

Assembled & Tested: $40.00

The TIM-6 is basically an amplifier.  It amplifies the signal from the Hall sensor several times until enough current can be sent to the coil (sold separately).  See the YouTube demo here --> https://youtu.be/_9KI5MJ0zQo

For use with 6 volt batteries (or 4.8 minimum to 7 volts maximum), negative ground, on most IC model engines.  The final TIP42C transistor switches the coil positive connection.

"Dwell" (the amount of time the board is energized during each cycle) must be controlled by the installer.  Too much dwell will prematurely drain your battery and possibly overheat the ignition module and coil.  See this link ==>  Dwell

Kit contains:

PLEASE NOTE: Due to component changes, some PCB holes will need to be drilled slightly larger.  Alternatively, some components like the diode can be "surface mounted".

Deluxe Kit - $21.00

Same as above, except also includes a PCB Screw Type Terminal Strip for ease of connecting or removing your battery, coil, and other wires.  Sometimes available fully assembled and tested for $40.00.  Click the down-arrow in the order box below.

We highly recommend that you bench test your system before installing it on your engine!  Click here for instructions ==> TIM6 Bench Test Procedures
