Way overdue update

Posted by on Nov 17, 2015

Well – I’ve been busy on many fronts and its time to get around to some updating here – As can be seen elsewhere on the site – the CX Hall effect has been completely re-done from the original concept – I decided to re-examine the problem and the design based upon everything learnt on the way and apply this to a new design – trying to simplify everything in the...

I’ve been working on several aspects of the Rae-San CX ignition system at once. Optimization of pickup noise Modification of the software and hardware to use Coil on Plugs(COP) Refinement and development of the Rae-San Hall Effect Sensor. While these are essentially separate activities they are somewhat interrelated and hence why I’ve held off on the updates until now. The idea is to end up with...
