E-Mag, the maker of self-powered electronic ignitions, has announced the pending release of its six-cylinder model for the Lycoming (I)O-540. The six cylinder, self-powered electronic ignition will be available in the fourth quarter of 2010. Priced at $1600, this ignition boasts a significant weight savings over traditional magnetos. It provides all of the advantages of the four cylinder 114 P-mags, but with fewer moving parts. By using fewer moving parts, E-Mag has reduced the parts count of this ignition to one. Yes, you read that correctly: There is only one moving part in the new ignition.
