(induction) coil

A device for producing high-voltage pulses to the spark plugs of an internal combustion engine.

The pulses are generated in the secondary winding of a transformer as a result of the interruption of direct current in the primary winding.

Please note that this is the term as it stands in the original IALA Dictionary edition (1970-1989)
