Getting Spark With PerTronix’s New Digital HP Ignition Box


Getting an engine the correct amount of spark is critical to obtaining the highest level of performance and preventing damage from occurring. PerTronix has a wide range of ignition products that provide solutions for just about any application or power level and their brand new Digital HP ignition box is geared towards those with big spark needs. The Digital HP is packed full of features that will benefit your typical Saturday night cruise-in ride, all the way up to a pure racecar.

To make sure that the Digital HP was a robust product that could meet the demanding requirements that high-performance engines have, PerTronix decided to re-think how they would approach the design process. According to Bill Hoge from PerTronix, it was that fresh approach that allowed them to create such a unique ignition box. “Our new Digital HP was designed from the start to be a true high energy CD Ignition system that uses many new things you don’t see in a traditional CD box.”


The first thing that PerTronix addressed what the amount of spark energy the Digital HP provides, and at 187 Millijoules it packs more than enough to fire any engine. An integrated three-step rev limiter allows the user to have burnout and launch control along with over-rev protection that can be set to any level. The Digital HP also provides multi-spark function all the way up to your engine’s red line. Another great feature is the RPM trigger output that can be used to control shift lights, solenoids, and other RPM-controlled devices.
