The ignition coil transforms the low voltage of the battery (12 V) into the 45 kV necessary to create an electric spark, so the current enters the primary and then through an inverter the primary launches the high voltage impulse that is transformed into the secondary winding this is carried by the Ignition  wire set or directly connected to the spark plugs, at this point the air-fuel mixture is then ignited by this spark in the cylinder of the internal combustion engine.

Brecav Srl, informs us Antonio Braia Managing Director of Brecav Srl, has in its range traditional oil bath ignition coils, static ignition coils and direct ignition coils called pencil coils or plug tops. In recent years, Brecav has created a production line for static ignition coils and a few years ago also started production of pencil coils.

The range therefore consists of Brecav coils, plug top coils and AM import coils. All products are thoroughly tested in our laboratory.

Ignition coils consist of a core with the inner conductors insulated to create the effect described above between the primary and secondary coils. The function of the core is to create a magnetic field inside and to store energy. This is discharged when the primary circuit is interrupted.  In modern ignition coils, the high voltage generated is insulated by a two-component epoxy resin. The potting of the epoxy resin in the production of the ignition coil is done in a vacuum to ensure perfect insulation and resistance to high voltage and not to lose electricity in the so-called ‘Christmas tree’.

Brecav Srl, continues Managing Director Antonio Braia, has a complete offer that covers all the technologies available on the market, with a triple range created and controlled by our technicians whose mission is to protect the health of those transported on the vehicles.
