BORGWARNER BERU SYSTEMS SUPPLIES FIAT DOWNSIZED ENGINES WITH NEW GENERATION COMPACT PLUG TOP IGNITION COILS

BorgWarner BERU System’s Modular Innovation Is Smaller, Lighter, More Powerful and More Reliable

Auburn Hills, Michigan, June 8, 2011– BorgWarner BERU Systems supplies Fiat’s new 0.9L TwinAir gasoline engine with compact plug top ignition coils. The next generation in ignition coil technology, BorgWarner’s smaller, modular ignition coils are designed to accommodate the tight spacing available in today’s downsized engines while providing more power and more reliable starts.

“BorgWarner’s advanced ignition technology delivers more combustion energy and higher voltage in a compact package, providing our partners in the global automotive industry with efficient, reliable combustion and optimal fuel utilization for environmentally sound ignition,” explains Dr. Thomas Waldhier, President and General Manager, BorgWarner BERU Systems. “With this innovative technology, BorgWarner satisfies several customer requirements while at the same time delivering the added benefit of fast-to-market implementation.”

BorgWarner’s new, lightweight plug top ignition coils utilize new magnetic circuitry technology resulting in reduced part size necessary to meet the tight installation requirements of modern downsized engines. In addition to being more compact, BorgWarner’s new ignition technology produces higher combustion energy and greater ignition voltage. This enables more complete combustion resulting in fewer emissions, greater fuel economy and increased performance. New synthetic materials and innovative, secure component connection technology inside the body of the ignition coil improves reliability and durability. Its modular construction offers basic components as well as variable, customer specific elements such as the attachment device, housing, connector and its respective connection angle—providing car makers with proven, reliable ignition coil technology that can be customized quickly.
