AEM Releases its TWIN FIRE Ignition Module with Multiple Independently-Firing Twin Capacitors!

 Credibility Rating: N/A


AEM has released its four- and eight-channel Twin Fire Ignition modules, the first capacitive digital ignition modules with multiple independently-charging, storing and firing capacitors (part numbers 30-2820 eight-channel, and 30-2821 four-channel).

Why You Need One:

“Our Twin Fire ignition eliminates the time constraints on how frequently you can fire your spark plugs, which is critical on high-RPM and multi-plug equipped vehicles,” said John Romero, AEM Electronics Lead Engineer. “There are truly no timing constraints with the unit, even the spark demands of a rotary engine is handled by a single module.”

The Twin Fire ignition produces 189mJ spark energy per capacitor, with 540v primary/54,000v secondary voltage energy, and has a Multi-Strike capability of up to ten sparks per ignition trigger. Full spark energy can be achieved with battery voltage as low as 9v, and each unit includes a tachometer output. The Twin Fire ignition is patent pending.

Additional Cool Stuff:

AEM’s Twin Fire ignition is the lightest (1.5lbs), smallest (5.5” x 4.625” x1.375”) and most affordable ignition module on the market. This unit works with most aftermarket stand-alone engine management systems. Critical safety features include robust circuitry with a hardened electrical design for unmatched fault tolerance, excellent EMI “noise” resistance, and an over-temperature auto shutdown feature that virtually eliminates failure.

Key Feature Summary:

  • Dual independently-charging, storing and firing capacitors eliminate need for multiple CDIs for high RPM and multi-plug vehicles
  • 189mJ spark energy per capacitor, 540v primary/54,000v secondary voltage energy
  • Multi-strike up to 10 sparks per ignition trigger
  • Hardened electrical design for unmatched fault tolerance
  • Over-temperature auto shutdown
  • Four and eight channel availability
  • Tach output included

AEM products are Engineered To Outperform. The company designs and manufactures high-quality street and race performance products that are distributed worldwide. AEM headquarters is based in Hawthorne, California.
