The ignition cables are responsible for conducting the required voltage generated by the ignition coil to the spark plug with as little loss as possible.
Due to their installation position, ignition cables are subjected to high loads. At first glance, the complex inner workings of ignition cables and ignition cable harnesses are not immediately obvious. They have to perform at the highest technical level in the engine compartment, where temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius prevail due to catalytic converters and increasingly powerful, compact engines; electronic ignition systems produce high voltages of up to 40 degrees Celsius.000 volts. With increasing age, the brass and stainless steel contacts oxidize. The electrical resistance of the cable increases – and with it the risk of failure of the ignition coils.
Today, PVC Hypalon ignition cables no longer meet these requirements. In current vehicles, even class F ignition cables must be silicone with a temperature resistance of up to 220°C and a dielectric strength of 40.000 volt are installed. This
