Ignition cable technologies

There are different types of ignition cables, varying in materials and interference resistance.

There are three different types of ignition cables. They differ based on the materials used for the conductor and the type of resistor required for interference suppression.

  • Copper ignition cables with interference suppression resistor in the connectors
  • Carbon resistor ignition cables
  • Ignition cables with inductive resistor

All types are equipped with a casing made of silicone rubber. In comparison with PVC, for example, this material becomes brittle or cracked much more slowly even at temperatures up to 220°C and in contact with oil or gasoline. Therefore, it complies with the highest class for temperature resistance in accordance with ISO 3808 (Class F, up to 220°C).
