If you are talking about the Stratrus backup ignition that runs off the flywheel,
I believe it is a hall effect sensor. It has a power lead that supplies 12
volts. The other two leads are the output.
Using the oscilloscope you would see the hall effect level increase, then decrease
(a pulse) when a magnet is passed by.
If not, you can use a voltmeter and you should be able to measure the voltage rise
when you place a magnet close to the pickup. If you move the magnet by slowly,
the hall effect will trip high and stay there so the meter will have time
to measure it then go back down as the magnetic has passed. Any small magnet
should work, no need to use the flywheel. Just remove the pickup and pass a magnet
If you're speaking of the magnetic pickup at the flywheel, these can
On my first flight, the secondary ignition magnetic pickup quit and as I
taxied back to the hangar, it
became functional again. Mykal informed me that a few of the pickups
were overheated during their
soldering process and would do that. He exchanged the one I'd sent him
and I've had no problems
with it since. Not sure how to test one though. You might post this to
the Aeroelectric List for the
technical side of testing pickups. They really get into this sort of thing.
