IGF Signal Detection using CEMF

There are two basic methods of detecting IGF. Early systems used the Counter Electromotive Force (CEMF) created in the primary coil and circuit for generating the IGF signal. The collapsing magnetic field produces a CEMF in the primary coil. When CEMF is detected by the igniter, the igniter sends a signal to the ECM. This method is no longer used.
