BorgWarner has agreed to supply its modular and robust 90mJ single spark ignition coil for Daimler’s new M260 and M264 four-cylinder in-line gasoline engines.
BorgWarner’s single spark ignition coil technology converts the battery’s low voltage into the high voltages of up to 40,000V needed to spark the ignition process. Featuring a bidirectional interface with an electronic control unit, the ignition coils send diagnostic information to the engine control unit to optimize the combustion process.
The Tier 1 supplier’s ignition technology will provide a solution for the premium auto maker’s high-volume, 48V-equipped motor platform offering increased fuel efficiency and performance.
“Our advanced ignition technologies have already been featured in numerous Daimler engines, delivering high-ignition energy for maximum efficiency,” said Joe Fadool, president and general manager, BorgWarner Emissions & Thermal Systems.
“As a product leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, we are excited to help our customers optimize their combustion engines to meet increasingly strict emissions regulations while improving the driving experience.”
