Ignition Wires, Looms & Accessories
Ignition wires and accessories are as important as the components in which they power, or protect. In order to protect these important wires from deteriorating due to dirt and grime, shielding or special compound is used on them. The use of shielding also provides an insulated barrier around the wire, which allows current to make its way through the wire without being lost. The life span of an ignition wire varies depending on the conditions it is subjected to ,and how well it is protected with the use of protective accessories.
Dielectric compound is a grease or oil substance that is used to insulate, lubricate and protect electrical fittings. It also protects against salt, dirt, moisture intrusion, and stray current in split electrical connections. As you can imagine, this compound has a universal use but it is most commonly used on vehicles because they have a lot of electric components that are subjected to terrible conditions. This substance is especially useful in a vehicles ignition system because it ensures that all the power from the ignition coil makes it to the spark plugs. Continue Reading -->
Ignition wires are designed to carry electrical voltage from a vehicle's ignition system to its spark plugs inside the combustion chamber. The best ignition wires have extremely low resistance, so that the largest possible amount of energy is transferred to the spark plug. It is so important to get as much energy as possible to transfer because a spark plug can take anywhere between 12,000 – 20,000 volts to fire. Continue Reading -->
Wiring looms and shielding are used on wires to protect them from rubbing against engine components and from the dirt and grime which can commonly be found in the engine compartment. Dirt and grime can deteriorate the wires faster and cause the connections between the wires to corrode which is why a protective layer is necessary. Besides protecting the wire from the elements, the shielding also serves as an insulator so that the current can’t jump from the wire to another metal component which can cause a short in the system. Losing voltage through the wires also means that the components wouldn’t be getting all the energy they need to function properly. This is a really big deal on components like the spark plugs because they require 12,000 – 20,000 volts in order to make a spark to ignite the fuel in the combustion chamber. Continue Reading -->
