    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    ORIGINAL: Bigboat

    I have test today the CDI and find some problems.
    Sometimes I missing a spark, sometimes a spark at the wrong time or to muts sparks at the same time.
    It seems to me a EMC-problem in the pcb I use, the pic making (or not) his own sparks.
    Also the energy for the capacitor is to small when the engine runs high rpm.
    If I calculate the power I need (5 Watt), the capacitor must be ~4,7uF instead of 1uF.
    Inside the cylinder the pressure is ~12bar on 4000 rpm, with this pressure there isn't a spark anymore.
    Back to the drawingbord [&o]
    Update, the diode in the powerline must be rotate 180 degrees.
    This resolve the *lost spark* problem.
    Test to 12.000 rpm (I can't higher with my electric motor) is no problem anymore.

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    I don't know why but I've problems running the map423 calculation sheet. The addins are installed but it's not working anyway.
    Can someone do this work for mebefore I'm going crazy? Or give me hints to get this sheet running...


    My ignition is built for the Zenoah G260 PUM.
    As described in the manual idle rpm is 3000rpm
    advance timing is 30Β°/7000rpm

    What advance timing values are you people using? I made some considerations about optimizing output of my G260PUM. What do you think?

    -To start engine easily, advance timing at 0-2000 rpm should be 0Β°or even after TDC.
    -max. rpm should be at 20.000rpm (=no rpm limiter)

    Thanks for your replies
    mit freundlichen Gruessen - best regards

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    Map423 needs the hex2dec-file from Office, you have to install this option.
    After install you have to click on all lines to activate the hex2dec.

    You never get a engine start with a 0 or -0 TDC degree-angle.
    Only if the engine is running, the degree-angle can be 0 TDC.
    Normal engine (also PUM) have a max of 5 degrees TDC on hig rpm.
    Start degree-angle must be ~30 degrees.

    BTW, it's dangerous to set the degree-angle on start at 0 (or -0) degrees.
    It's posible the explosion will be inside your carter and blow the carter up !!
    Your ports will be opened after a few degrees when the piston goes down.

    I hope not too many questions..I read all the info on cdi i could find and got so excited..I am ready to jump on a project.

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    This is a new version of the CDI. The PIC is changed to a 16F628, and will be changed to a 16F88 soon.
    The 16F88 is the best 16X PIC yet, lots of new possibillities, and an internal osc at 8 Mhz.
    The 16F84 is outdated, and i guess we will not work more on the code for it.
    The code is totally rewritten, and is now in C, and there is a new Excel sheet to manipulate the curve.
    Nothing of this is released on the net yet, as it is still very much under construction.
    The code works, and has been run on a real engine, but there are some bugs yet.
    The hardware is also modified (by Bigboat), and under construction, but the new code/PIC16F88 will work on the old hardware with some modifications.
    When this will be released is not decided yet, we have done a lot of work on the new CDI in the last month, but right now we have a little break...
    For now, use the old code and the old schematics.

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    Hi,i had problems with the exel sheets too,have instaled office severel times,instaled all addins and still not worked! then i did a little research and found out that there is a little error in the formulas calculating the lines for the asm. ; this is how it should loke like =IF(B16<$D$8,CONCATENATE(" ",$E$14,DEC2HEX(D16),$E$15,$A$142,ROUND(D16/10,1),$A$149,INT(B16),$B$14))
    and this is how it loked originaly =IF(B40<$D$8,IF(D40>10,CONCATENATE(" ",$E$14,DECHEX(D40,2),$E$15,$A$142,TRUNC(D40/10,1),$A$149,INT(B40),$B$14),CONCATENATE(" ",$E$14,DECHEX(D40),$E$15,$A$142,ROUND(D40/10,1),$A$149,INT(B40),$B$14)),$E$16)
    i have deleted a portion of the formula,and where it writes dechex i have replaced it with de2hex,as you could notice in the formula! you have to have the next addins instelled:anallysis toll pack and solver add-in!!!!!!!
    you copy the formula in to the first line off the exel (cell e16) and press enter;after that copy/paste on each line until finsh(do not paste severel lines at once, one line at a time so you dont have to modify the formula!!!!)
    this is made for the exel map 42 ;you can do the same with the other exel maps,but the formulas not the same! so be careful what you delete from the formula!!!
    I hope it helps you,and i did not write it two complicated!I am not so good at english.

    rpm adv. nr loops lines to insert into asm.
    1,010 6.0 50 retlw 31h ;5ms 1010rpm 1,010 6.0
    1,017 6.3 49 retlw 30h ;4.9ms 1016rpm 1,017 6.3

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    What's that 6pin chip for? Is it a part of advance or part of HV circuit?
    The 6 pin chip is a optocoupler placed between HV and advance to eliminate interferance from the HV.

    Is schematic on the http://www.modelbouw.gompy.net/cdi/cdi.htm working or you already changed it ? Which program should i burn in the chip :Zenoah 2.hex?What if i want to change advance settings?Which spreadsheet do i use then?
    All schematics on the site are working.
    It depent wat hex-file you will use, the Zenoah-file ingrease the ignition......not all engine love this.
    The best way to use the timingtable is, start with all settings on zero (no delay)
    If your cdi is working, start with a small delay (1msec) for the complete table.
    If everything goes fine, make your own table for your engine.
    BTW, most normale engines have a degrease table (ignitionpoint + x-degrees)

    Bigboat please advice!
    Wait untill we (JMJ and I) are ready with the new cdi.
    I put everything online if we are ready and will post the link here on the msgboard.

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    Your computer has a search forum called Google...There are more magnet sources there than you will ever need....All you gotta do is go there....One of the first entries shows magnets for $7.99 per 100...Perfect size, very small and made from the strongest magnetic material in the world...

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    Hi,i have a question to Bigboat: is it posible to use pin 10 from pic16f628 as a reverse output?
    To use it for a TCI ignition?
    Or is it for the pick-up signal?like a test led for pickup?

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    Pin 10 is using for a flashlight to test where the ignition will take place.
    The flash will taken place at the same time as the spark.
    Pin 6 is high and go to ground for the spark, pin 10 is low and will be high for flash.

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    Programfiles now including testfunction.
    You can test your cdi without mounting the hallsensor on a rotating engine.
    With two jumpers you can generate 300 or 7500 sparks / minute.
    Please see "Config-file Micro-C (ZIP-JPG)" to setup Micro_C.

    E-Coil wind?
    ORIGINAL: Ben_C

    My high voltage coil is wound on an E-core. I would rather spend $200 on a professional CDI than wind another toroid coil! The E-core coil only took about 20 minutes to wind.
    Ben
    Hi intersted in having a go at building this CDI for a Ryobi whipper Snipper

    I too find the idea of winding a toroidal intimidating!

    I have been looking for a tutorial on how to wind a E-Core?
    Closest so far is this-
    http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/jshidbal.htm

    Anybody have links or pictures on how to do an E-Coil wind?

    cheers jeff

    A walk through on programming a pic would be good also (my wsishlist)

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    Hi all,
    I've downloaded the schematics and pcb layouts from the GOMPY site and constructed it. CDI works well on the bench in test hi and lo modes and with magnet mounted to an electric flywheel the hall sensor fires the circuit well also. Can any one help though with the rotten excel spreadsheet. I've done everything as listed on this post regarding the ADD INNS for excel and still get the DEC@HEX macro problem. I would now like to be able to manipulate the advance curves but can't until I can get spreadsheet working. Also better way of contructing transformer is to use a split ferrite core and bobbin. Wind on 16meters of .2mm, 20 turns of .5mm and 10 turns of .2mm. Look forward to any positive responses to excel problem.

    RE: Opensource CDI ignition

    hi there.
    this is my first post but this thread realy helpd me a lot .
    i am planing to make a msd(multi spark discharge) type cdi .

    can a brain here suggest some better circuit which uses battry (12v)and makes enough volts as well as amps which could drive a big ignition coil.
    Sorry for my poor english..
