The Audi magneto is an apparatus that generates electricity.
Magnetos are part of the ignition system in some internal combustion petrol engines and are used to provide high voltage electrical pulses which supply energy to the spark plugs. This type of ignition system consists of the magneto, a spark plug and spark plug wire.
The magneto uses electromagnetism to generate electricity. A magneto is made up of a magnet which spins around inside a coiled wire, positioned in the inner rim of the flywheel, which is connected to the spark plug by a spark plug wire. The magneto generates its own magnetic field of energy which is used to power the spark plugs in order for combustion to occur. This type of magnet is known as a permanent magnet and it provides regular waves or pulses of alternating current.
The coiled wire in the magneto can burn out and crack causing the magneto to malfunction. Replacing this part when it fails with the Audi magneto will ensure a part that fits properly, works well and lasts longer.
- Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
- Audi was founded after the German engineer August Horch fell out with the co-founder of his first manufacturing company. He called the new company August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
- The Olympics Committee tried to sue Audi in 1995, claiming that the four rings logo was too similar to the Olympic rings. Audi easily won.
- The RS3 is lighter than you might think. That's because the five-cylinder engine isn’t made from cast-iron but instead from aluminium. That means it only weighs around 26kg!
- Audi was the first manufacturer to use four-wheel drive cars in the World Rally Championship. Consistent wins meant that the WRC soon allowed all cars to use the technology.
