Impulses for the control unit

The open distributor of ignition (on the example of the 4-cylinder engine):

1 – Hall sensor;
2 – zamykatel;
3 – connecting plug of the sensor of the Hall.

The sensor of the Hall is located at the 6-cylinder engine far behind behind the left head of the block of cylinders:

1 – Hall sensor case;
2 – connecting plug.

Hall sensor

The inclusion mentioned in the last section and switching off of current to the coil of ignition is provided (passing also through the control unit and the electronic switchboard – about it below) with the sensor of the Hall which is located at models with 4-and 5-cylinder engines in the ignition distributor, and at models with 6-cylinder engines behind at the left head of the block of cylinders.

Its name has nothing in common with big halls, etc., and is connected with a name of an opener of effect of the Hall used during the operation of this sensor.

The sensor of the Hall is located below in the case of the distributor and consists of the following elements: a zamykatel (trigger) with 4, 5 or 6 dredging (depending on number of cylinders), a permanent magnet and actually integrated scheme of the Hall located opposite to it. Everything together functions approximately as the photorelay, but here instead of light magnetic waves work.

It will become completely evident if we imagine an automatic door of the elevator. If you get up in an aperture and will interrupt a ray of light, the door of the elevator remains open. As soon as you departed and opened to light the road, the door mechanism receives the order on closing.

Let's return to system of ignition: if in a magnetic field there is a plate of a zamykatel, the sensor of the Hall passes current to the control unit. If the plate leaves a gap between the integrated scheme of the Hall and a permanent magnet, food to the control unit does not arrive. It is also the impulses operating ignition.

 Help: dredging in a zamykatel of the distributor is located in such a way that an impulse of a high-tension current, for example, at the 4-cylinder engine, gets to the control unit for 60 ° to VMT. During this time the control unit counts the optimum moment of ignition on the basis of information on number of turns of the engine (by means of sequence of impulses of a high-tension current) and loads of the engine (by means of indicators of resistance of a flowmeter of air, a potentiometer of a butterfly valve or the sensor of pressure in an inlet collector).

Sensor of number of turns of the engine and sensor of the moment of ignition

Models with 6-cylinder engines

In addition to the Hall sensor 6-cylinder engines are equipped with the sensor of number of turns/frequency of rotation of the engine and the sensor of the moment of ignition. Both are so-called inductive sensors.

The sensor of frequency of rotation works as follows: in the sensor there are a coil and a magnet. They are supplemented by gear inflow on a flywheel behind on a cranked shaft. Every time when under the sensor passes a tooth, a magnetic field of a permanent magnet changes, and in the coil tension is created. It is enough this small signal for processing in the control unit of systems of injection of MPI/MPFI. Thus information on number of turns of a cranked shaft arrives.

To record the exact provision of a cranked shaft, on one certain place of a flywheel the steel pin was established. If it passes under the sensor, there is tension peak which the control unit uses for situation definition.
