If you would like to
develop a custom ignition for your
application contact Power Arc.
Our unique rapid development system can quickly produce a
custom ignition for most applications. We are currently interested in expanding our product line.
There will be no cost for the development work if Power Arc accepts the project. Send us your distributor,
housing, technical drawings or photos for review.

IDS Compact C-Series
Two coil outputs with 4 curves. Works
for Harley-Davidson* Single/Dual Fire, Honda, Kawasaki & other 1-4 cylinder engines
(programmed for your engine).
One coil output with 2 curves. Works
Harley-Davidson* Dual Fire, Royal Enfield, Ural, Triumph, Norton & other 1 or 2 cylinder engines
(programmed for your engine).
User programmable with two coil outputs and 4 curves with built in program connector.
Works for Harley-Davidson* Single/Dual Fire, Honda, Kawasaki & other 1-4 cylinder engines (programmed for your engine).
VP Series Distributor Mounted Ignitions with No External Module and No High
Voltage Distributor Cap
with Coil Packs & Chevy Stem
IDS VP-2 & VP-4
User programmable ignition with an integrated program connector and interchangeable
distributor stem. No high voltage distributor cap. The VP-2 works on 2-4
cylinder engines and the VP-4 works on 2-8 cylinder distributor based engines.
Stems currently available for GM and VW engines
(programmed for your engine)
Program Link Cable
is used to program IDS ignitions.
The Power Arc SR˛ and CDR Ignitions
(equivalent to Spyke Super Comp* and MC Advantages Stampede* models) have been replaced by IDS
versions. Harley-Davidson customers

Your Own Custom Ignition with IDS
IDS (Ignition Development System)
utilizes the patented optical counting system with the ability to
place up to three separate sparks at different crank angles to create a
highly stable adjustable multi-spark ignition system. A variety of engines from 1-8 cylinders with or without a distributor can be
programmed into the ignition module (patented). The IDS program has been updated and
The intuitive and powerful IDS program is used to develop curves for
various engines and works with all IDS Ignitions. Curves which
comply with EPA, CARB or other emissions standards can be easily and
rapidly implemented. Click

IDS C-1, C-2 &
CP-2 ignitions work with 1-8 cylinder engines with a distributor cap or 1-4
cylinder engines (C-2 & CP-2) without a distributor cap. The IDS VP-4 ignition
works with 2-8 cylinder engines and features interchangeable stems,
allowing for its use on a large variety of engines which accept distributors. Curves developed with the
VP-2, VP-4, or
CP-2 ignitions can be programmed into the
C-1 or C-2 ignitions with a
Works on 1-8 cylinder engines with distributor based high
voltage distribution or with 1-8 cylinder engines with coil
based distribution (VP-4).
● Optical sensors used for extreme spark stability (patented).
● Multi-spark operation with up to three separate sparks per
compression stroke which can be individually timed (patented).
● Coil saturation (On/Off time) can be set to different values at different
● LED static timing indicator.
● Two separate sensor inputs which can be configured as analog
or digital inputs allowing for four separate advance curves.
● Adjustable Rev. Limit can be a different value in all four
● Tachometer output can be adjusted to work on almost any
tachometer regardless of what engine it was designed for.
● The number
of engine starts is recorded.
● The number of times an engine exceeds a maximum user
determined RPM is recorded.
Rev. limit value can be programmed independently from the rest
of the curve (Curve file is not required).
● Automatic coil shut off.
● Precision stainless steel
encoder wheel/rotor can be mounted on either cam
or crank shaft.
● Custom sizes can be
ordered (C-1, C-2 & CP-2). Keys and adapters can be
developed. Custom Stems can be developed
for VP-2 & VP-4 ignitions. See
development page for details
● Custom labels available for builders, distributors and OEM's.
