Reduce Arcing And

Some ignition components use resistance to reduce arcing and radio frequency interference (RFI). Condensers use the high resistance of a dielectric (insulating) material to separate conductive plates that soak up electrostatic charges and current surges that cause RFI and point arcing. Spark plug cables, also called carbon resistance wires, reduce current flow but transmit high voltage to the spark plugs. This causes an extremely hot spark without RFI or rapid burning of the plug electrodes. Spark plugs, themselves, have a carbon core to achieve the same results.
