General Technologies’ multi-system ignition analyzer

General Technologies Corp.’s new TA500 SmarTach+COP is the first tool of its kind in the industry capable of testing and diagnosing ignition systems on engines using: coil on plug, coil near plug, DIS (distributor-less) or waste spark, magneto and conventional distributor/ignition coil technologies. Simple to use, the TA500 requires no special adapters, cables or a scope and is equipped with a large digital display that shows spark plug voltage, spark burn time, rpm, as well as min/max readings in real time. The TA500’s unique and proprietary technology allows automotive technicians to perform quick and reliable diagnostics of non-starts, misfires, defective coils, fouled or damaged spark plugs and/or spark plug wires, by comparing digital read-outs of the spark plug voltage and burn time between cylinders.
