II.. System Description
     The TRW/Lumenition Electronic Ignition System is a breakerless ignftton

     system kit intended to replace the breaker points within the distributor.

     It consists of a control rotor, a position sensor, and a transistor

     switchingunit;>        This device utilizes the ignition coil supplied with

     the vehicle.        The control rotor (chopper) isvplaced over the cam of the

     distributor and bas windows cut for four, six or eight cylinder engine —

     applications.        The position sensor operates in conjunction with the control

   —rotor and consists of a light emitting diode and an'infrafed defiecfior;

   . The—signals derived—by the position sensor—are fed to a. power unit which >

    Camplifies the signal and accomplishes transistor switching ofthe primary
     voltage to the ignition coil.>              {Reference Appendix A and B) .

              RE:     TRW/Lumenition Breakerless Ignition System Conversion Kit

              Dear Mr. Drachand:

             On September 26, 1975, Mr. R.J. Kenny pointed out to our Hr. Mc Cue that
              our kit no. 626—036 (Ford 6—cy1.) exceeded the ARB criteria for timing
              variation when centrifugal advance data is added to the vacuum advance
              data. We are presently analyzing this situation to determine the problem,
              if there is a problem. Meanwhile, in order not to hold up approval on
              the other models, we will temporarily withdraw our application for kit
              no. 626—036.

             We‘will resubmit 626—036 along with other kits at a later date.

             This leaves under application, per my—letter of August 15, 1975, and my
             letter of September 12, 1975, to Mr. Kenny with corrected data, the follow—
.            ing kits:
                                        626—021   4—Cylinder Bosch
                                        626—023   6—Cylinder Bosch
                                        626—028   V8 Bosch
                                        626—027   4—Cylinder VW (Bosch) Industrial
                                        626—006   V8 Delco (GM and AMC)

             Can I assume that when our app11cat1on is approved, it will allow an 0.E
             {e.g. BMW) to sell vehicles in California equipped w1th the appropr1ate
             Lumenition installation?

             I look forward to hearing from you on our'app1ication.

Dear Hr. Drachand:

The answers to your questions are as follows:

(1)~      Test data requested is shown on the attached data sheefs 1 — 16.

(2)      Attached is revised Exhibft III, Part 1, showing part numbers as
         requested.                                                        —

(3)      The Lumenition system is not compatible with after—market or 0.E.M.
         C—D ignition systems, and we do not recommend interfacing the. two
         kinds of devices. The Lumention system is designed to replace the
         breaker points with a permanent, non—adjustable photo—optic trigger,
         which still uses the Kettering principle for energy storage. This
         means that the O.E.M. coil sees the same kind of signal it would
         receive if the points were still in place.  If a vehicle has an
         existing C—D system, we reconmend replacing it with the Lumenition
         sys tem and a standard coil and standard spark plugs.

         The Lumenition system is not compat1b1e with dual point distributors
         where one set of points is used to retard timing for emission control.
        . As a result, we do not have kits for such vehicles.

(5)      To our knowledge, the only vehic]es we retrofit with unequal .cam angles
         are pre—1968 Type 1. 2 and 3Vu1k,wagcns Ac;ord1ng to Volkswagen of
         America, the number 3 spark plug firing was retarded 3° to overcome
         an overheating problem with that cylinder. VW of America recormends
         to its! dealers. to replace worn pre—1968 distributors with new dis—
         tributors. which have equal cam angles.                        To overcome the overheating
         problem, Lhey racominend retarding the spark 3° from original manu—
         facturer‘s specifications.

              timing should be retarded 3° from manufacturer‘s specifications.".

     (6)      The Lumenition systeim is fully compatible with electronic speed sensors
            . which are capable of utilizing a positive square wave signal as an

       CGENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE LUMENITION®SYSTEM



       Lumenition®      is a breakerleés, optically triggered electronic

_subsystem for controlling the ignition of a spark ignited internal combustion

 engine.     As presently manufactured it is a retrofit package, making use of

 the OEM distributor by direct substitution for the breaker points,      It is

 designed to use the OEM coil, but high performance requirements are met

_ by the use of a special coil in conjunéfion with the electronic package. _

       It operates as follows: Infrared radiation from a light emitting diode

 is focused on the junction of a phototransistor; a slotted sheet metal or

 plastic disc affixed to the distributor shaft interrupts the beam, producing

\ an on—off signal for spark control.

       The opto—electronic trigger signal (basically a measure of crankshaft

 positién) is amplified and used to control a power semiconductor which
                         <
 actualiy sfiit_ches the coil primary currefif and so controls the spark’ene_rgy.

 Since both the initi.ation z;nd interruption of the coil current are controlled '

 'By the optically generated sigfial, spairk tirn-ing is only a function of crankshaft

 position.    The performance, then, is vei‘y much the same as a properiy .

 adjusted breaker point system, but the absence of any moving parts in rubbing

 contact makes the initial timing adjustments permanent.

                         TESTING INSTRUCTIONS FOR TRW/LUMENITION IGNITION SYSTEM
                                          (NEGATIVE GROUND ONLY)


F the—system is operating we do not recommend routine tesfing.
          ectronics do not deteriorate and therefore only the spark plugs, rotor arm, distributor
          d spark plug leads require checking, service, or replacement.
n the event that the system is not functioning first check all conmnections.   In partifcular,
erify that a good ground connectfon exists all the way to the battery.   Iif in doubt,
emporarily jumper battery negative terminal to ground terminal of power unit.
he system comprises three main components:
                               POWER AMPLIFIER ASSEMBLY —

                               TRIGGER ASSEMBLY (LENSED UNIT}

                               cHoprer
)    TO TEST COMPLETE SYSTEM

    ‘T)     Remove the spark coil High Tension (H.T.) lead from the distributor and hold it 1/4"
           from grounded frame.    On cranking the engine sparking should occur between the lead
           and frame.

3    TO TEST THE POWER AMPLIFIER ASSEMBEY
     1)° Unp]ug the dlstrlbutor at the 3—pin connector.
     2)     Remove the H,T Coil lead at the distributor and hold it 1/4" to 1/2" from a good ground.
     3) .Turn on the ignition switch.
    ‘)      Ey means of a small piece of wire shaped like a hair pin connect the b?u;e wire to the
           ‘"black wire on the heat sink side of the 3—pin connector. When breaking this connection
            sparks should occur between the H.T. lead and ground.
     5)    —If there is a very weak spark check the colil.   If there is no sfiark suspect a power
           amplifier fault.
     6)     Before testing trigger, verify that correct voltages exist at power amplifier. terminals.
           _With connector disconnected, the following voltages should exist with ignition on:

                 3—pin connector between black (~) and red (+]) leads 7V + IJV    .
                 3—pin connector between black (~) and blue (+) leads 0. EV + 0. 3V

                 vehicle frame to battery ground:  less than O.1V
                 vehicle frame to blue ring terminal:  12 + 2V
                 vehicle frame to red ring terminal: 12 +2V (battery voltage}
                 vehicle frame to black ring terminal (ground)} less than O0.1V

     TESTING THE TRIGGER ASSEMBLY (LENSED UNIT)
  This test is only valid with a good Power Amplifier Assembly.  With the TRW/Lumenition
  system completely wired up, including the 3—pin connector, and the ignition switch on,
  connect the positive lead of Voltmeter carefully to the blue lead at the back of the 3~
  pin connector, and connect the negative lead of the Voltmeter to the black ring terminal.
  With an uninterrupted beam of light between lenses the meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 volts.
  With an interrupted beam of light the meter should read 0.6 to 0.9 volts (use finger to
.’nterrupt light beam).   Before suspecting Lensed Unit ensure good Voltmeter con»nections.


     NOTE:    The light beam is invisible to the human eye?
