    Two Powerful Sparks - All The Time!

    Pertronix Second Strike is the only ignition system to provide a powerful second spark throughout the entire RPM range, unlike other multiple spark discharge systems, which typically drop off to one spark at about 3000 RPM. This micro controller based ignition supplements most inductive type systems (points, GM HEI, Ford TFI and Duraspark, Ignitor and Ignitor II) with a powerful capacitive discharge second spark resulting in more complete combustion of the fuel/air mixture. Increased burn time at very high RPM levels also reduces misfires resulting in more peak horsepower and torque. No special distributor or coil is required. A simple five-wire hookup to your existing system completes the installation.

    Pertronix Second Strike¬ís unique crank angle offset (CAO) feature permits you to time the second spark in crank angle degrees to occur after the primary spark with a simple external adjustment dial. A wide range of adjustment (2 to 18°) allows you to experiment with the CAO that works best for your engine¬ís performance or your driving profile. The CAO feature can be operated while the engine is running to assist experimentation for optimum settings.

    A digital rev limiter protects the engine from possible over rev conditions. Using the random spark stealing method, which reduces popping, banging and engine stress, you can easily set limits with a simple external dial. Pertronix Second Strike comes standard with an output compatible with most modern tachometers requiring no interface adapters.

  • Only system to provide a second spark throughout the RPM range.
  • Powerful CD second spark resulting in more complete combustion.
  • Increased burn time makes more horsepower and torque at high RPMs.
  • Unique (CAO) feature adjusts the timing of the second spark.
  • Built-in digital rev limiter with high resolution. Digital rotary switches permit easy adjustment.
  • Adaptive voltage feature prevents overdriving the ignition coil.
  • Voltage protection prevents damage from reversed polarity.
