Precisely regulated current ensures the optimum ignition
temperature and low power consumption with the Graupner Smart Glow Plugs
Booster, as well as a steady idle and smooth transition from idle to full
throttle. The power supplied to the glow
plug(s) increases gradually as the throttle stick is pulled back further, reducing
glow plug failure and aids in smooth transitions from idle to power. The Smart Glow Plugs Booster energizes the
glow plug(s) during startup, eliminating the need to carry a separate 1.2 to
2.0 V supply and glow plug connector.
This also creates the added benefit of eliminating the need to drill
holes in the model’s cowling for glow plug access.
For a single-cylinder engine, the Smart Glow Plugs Booster requires
a 2.4volt (2 cells) battery. (Capacity of the cells used in the battery should correspond
to the model being used.) The typical
current drain from the battery is around 1.0Amp, depending on the type of
