CDI guru's, please help me understand..
So, from my understanding of HAL sensor trigger vs ignition coil trigger CDI and how each can be wired, and (minimal) understanding of how each type of system actually works, I did not think the two could be interchanged, but the pietcard 2041 looks like it has been used on both.
Judging from the wire colors and diagrams, it's a sensor-less type four wire box just like the 2013 that comes with the conversion kits, and the kinetic cdi; box, one wire to each side of the internal coil , one to ground, and one to the ht coil, in fact nash says he used it on one of the conversion kits in the comments.
It's also the box that comes with the e50 adventure pack...which is a hal triggered unit. According to the instructions, and the 2041 comments, it sounds to me like you can just wire the negative coil wire to the hal sender in stead and it works. So the sensorless boxes can pick up the trigger signal from either?
In the case of no hal sender, my understanding is the internal coil is insulated from ground, so the box gets it's power and signal through that circuit, and the ground is used for the spark circuit only.
I'm not sure about CDI with a HAL sender, the ht circuit must be the same, but i'm not sure how the stator is wired, if the coil and hal are on the same circuit that would make sense for power and signal also, or does it use the ground for the power and/or signal circuits, shared with the spark circuit like the 2002 (three wire, coil-ground-htcoil)
This brings me to another question, is this true in reverse? can hal-triger boxes be used without a sender by wiring the hal sender wire to the other side of the internal coil in stead? Did i just miss that they work the same and the signal just comes from a different place (dir haven't been around for a while). If so, this opens up a world of possibilities and pretty much any box can be wired to any CDI.
I guess it comes down to how each type works,
2041: coil-coil-ground-htcoil or sensor-coil-ground-htcoil
conversion kit with nash comment:
TL;DR: are sensor/sensorless cdi boxes interchangeable? can anyone provide me with a diagram of puch or other hal sensor type cdi stator wiring please (CDaI, how doz they woik? XD)
