CAPACITIVE DISCHARGE IGNITION SYSTEM
III CDI with Direct Crank Sensor
III CDI with Hall Effect Module
Light Speed Engineering has introduced a new ignition
system to its line of products.
The new Plasma III Capacitor Discharge
System is the latest high performance ignition for
all 4-cyl and 6-cyl aircraft engines.
Its long duration spark and optimized
timing curve makes more horsepower and improves
fuel efficiency- at all altitudes. Other benefits
include quick starts, reduced maintenance, light
weight, lower EGT’s and up to 20% more range.
As with all LSE ignitions, RPM and manifold
pressure inputs are used for our proprietary
timing curves. The Plasma III is also capable of
displaying the current timing advance, manifold
pressure and rpm on an optional lightweight LCD
The Plasma III can easily replace one or both magnetos,
making your engine run better under all
conditions. Precise crankshaft position and RPM is
provided by the direct crank position sensor or
the mini sensor installed near
the prop flange (available for 4 and 6-cyl
engines) or by the accessory case mounted hall
module (available for 4-cyl Lycoming type engines only).

available in the Plasma III, please refer to the PLASMA
II PLUS page. More information on
the optional pre-wired LCD Display and rotary
switch is available at this Display
accessory case driven Hall
Effect Sensor Module can be installed on 4 cylinder engines
only. The Direct Crank Sensor and the Mini
Sensor are mounted near
the flywheel for
crank position information. All 6 cylinder
engines use either the Direct Crank Sensor or the
all Turbo and Super-Charged ignition systems, add
On all Franklin and Continental engine ignition
systems, add $195.
