High voltage ignition systems for vintage and specialized engine applications can be furnished by a magneto. Fundamental to the magneto is the ability of the magneto to produce the high voltage used for the ignition system spark without the need of a voltage source such as a battery. A wire wound coil cutting through a magnetic field generates a voltage potential . This electromagnetic principal is used in the magneto to create the spark at the spark plug gap which ignites the air fuel mixture in the engine cylinder.
A magneto may be driven directly from the engine with a solid coupling or it may be driven with an impulse coupling. The impulse coupling aids the magneto's ability to produce spark at very low turning speeds.
