The IMRIE®3000, $1000.00 plus $150.00 for each Flywheel Simulator.



              The “Imrie® 3000” is designed to meet the engine manufacturers specifications using solid state electronic circuitry for accurate and dependable trouble-free service, to test all types of conventional and electronic ignition systems and other electrical components.

                Tests can be performed ON or OFF the engine, on the test bench for normal service work, on running engines to detect intermittent problems or on the counter for spare parts sales.


The tests described below do not require “MAINS POWER”, therefore are portable.

                The operations of the 0-40 and 0-400 volt ranges are similar to an oscilloscope but the displays of the voltages are read on an easy-to-read meter. This provides a quick and accurate method of measuring working voltages within an ignition system while cranking or while the engine is operating through its entire RPM range at normal operating temperatures.

                Using the “Spark Gap” facility, an indication of “RESERVE” spark voltage can be obtained. Misfiring can also be observed in the window.


Most of these tests do require “MAINS POWER”, therefore usually are not portable.

The tester applies simulated working voltages to the individual system and associated parts. This form of testing allows the mechanic to visually observe the actual operating condition of the ignition parts, under load without the engine running, thus ruling out other mechanical engine malfunction (i.e. Carburettor, fuel pump, valves, timing etc.).


  • Tests all types of Conventional and Electronic ignition High-Tension Coils.
  • Spark-Gap (0-12mm) test, can be used in circuit to check “Reserve” spark voltages.
  • Test for High voltage leakage from H.T. coils, leads and Plug caps etc.
  • Condenser leakage and shorts test.
  • Ohm meter – High and Low scales.
    • o Test Diodes
    • o Breaker Points testing, used for static timing of Magneto ignitions.
    • o All resistance testing, 0-20,000 ohms.
  • Volt meter – 0-40 volts DC – 0-400 volts DC – 0-300 volts AC.
    • o Test for “Volt-drop” in starter motor and charging circuits.
    • o Peak voltage testing of Charge, Exciter, Pulse/Trigger, and Sensor coils.
    • o Checking output from portable generators.
    • o Battery charge rate, etc. etc.
  • Flywheel simulation (optional extras, FS-1, FS-2), test “Power Products” CDI and TCI ignition modules and associated parts.
