Most returning customers will know by now that we sell suppression wire for use with electronic ignitions (PLEASE do not put copper wires on electronic ignitions–We beg you). Previously, that wire was rated at 1100 Ohms per foot. There’s nothing wrong with that. We haven’t had a complaint about them in… we’re not sure how long, and the modules are not burning up. However, in one of those rare cases most people only dream about, something has changed for the better.
To start with, we only had one grief with the old wire. The recommended specs from the electronic ignition kits we sell listed 500 Ohms per foot. Again, our previous wires were a bit overkill for this, but they did the job just fine and without complaint. Now, our manufacturer is phasing out the 1100 Ohm/foot for a 1200 Ohm/foot wire. Still not the end of the world, but certainly not ideal.
Our new, ultra-low suppression 7mm EPDM ignition cable boasts 500 Ohms/foot, which is the specified number for those electronic ignition kits we know and love. That means that your electronic ignition will get the absolute most power that we can (safely) feed the unit. We still have some of our old wire in stock and we plan to use it. We’ll be slowly phasing this shiny new stock in over time. The new suppression wire is built basically the same way as our previous stock. It’s a conductive graphite core, proprietary blend silicone insulation, and an outer jacket for protection.
We waited several months for the wires to finally reach us, so you can imagine how excited we are about finally having it! It’s beautiful and shiny and new—but don’t take our word for it. Order some for your next project and we promise you’ll love it!
