Just a simple driver circuit for ignition coils.



swim at 90 degrees to the current and gain speed in two directions

i feel the circuit is having lesser resistance then the actual video

Hi Paul
You are right-i forgot the 1k resistor. Circuit fixed
Thanks

Hey TinMan
Im not having much luck with this. The only thing I seem to be doing is cooking transistors and I already do that very well thank you. LOL
I am using a TIP3055 insted of a 2N3055, everything else is the same. Do you think thats the prob?

Hi msm
i shouldnt think the transistor would make a diference.Make sure it is the negative on the coil that is going to the positive on the battery.Oh make sure you have a neon or a charge battery from the collector as i have in my vidio.It didnt blow up my 2n3055 with out it but it did get hot,and i dont think the tip3055 can handle as much heat.110 volt neon from collector to emmiter,see how that go's.Maybe even put the ssg diode across the bass and emmiter.

Hey TinMan
Yaaaaay!!! it works! Thanks
Went out and got a 2N3055 just to make sure...and...um...but...then...um...you have to remember BC&E are different. LOL I added another 1k resistor off the pot and hooked up a high energy coil off a new Ford and OMG. Too cool.

Lol-yes,helps to conect them the right way around lol.
Have fun with you 50 000 volt system lol.Ouch

Hey TinMan
Just FYI, I added another .22uf cap from #5 terminal off the timer to ground. Through the roof!! and the trans runs cooler.

I will have to give that a try.
Cheers

Hi TinMan, I'm new at the forum, I saw your post about "a simple driver circuit for ignition coils". I require to make a simple circuit to be used with an automotive coil in order to test spark plugs. I have some questions:
1. The circuit that you published serves me for my purpose?.
2. Can I get slow pulses to simulate the spark in a low-rev engine?
3. Is the circuit complete? or requires more components?
I read that you posted a video about the circuit, but I don't see it, you also talk about to put a neon from collector to emmiter, but I do not see it either in the posted circuit. I'm confused.
Thanks for your valuable information bro.

Hi Tukeke
The answer to all of your questions regarding the drive
circuit is ..... YES
Although it is a basic drive circuit which if required can
be easily modified it will as it stands do what you have asked

The use of a Neon bulb wired across the transistors Collector and
Emitter terminals is a safeguard only and has no effect on the
performance of the circuit
