SERVICE AND PRODUCTS
Carmo electronics aims its service and products on the motor electronics of vehicles with a combustion engine. The service can be categorized as follows:
1. Testing and repairing ignition systems
2. Universal replacement ignition systems
3. Programmable ignition- and injection systems
4. Related electronic products
Ad 1. Testing and repairing ignition systems
When you have a motorcycle with a possibility of malfunction in the electronic ignition/injection system, Carmo electronics advises to test this suspicious part. Testing an ignition/injection system means it will be exposed to all kind of circumstances such as: duration, vibration, temperature, moisture, load, and revolutions. The test results are showed on a supplied graphical presentation. Beside ignition and injection systems Carmo electronics is also capable of testing other electronic components, for example: the generator, rectifier/ regulator, powervalve unit and display units.
Reliable repairing guaranteed
Carmo electronics is able to repair a defective ignition/injection system very accurate and reliable. For this, you only have to send your ignition/ injection system. Carmo electronics has developed a very unique simulation protocol to generate every possible kind of signal your motorcycle may generate. Repair is executed with high-grade parts and guarantees maximum reliability. Repaired units are finished with a very strong and durable coating that protects electronic parts for the influence of extreme weather circumstances.
Always send a clear description of malfunction together with the suspicious electronic part. In this case Carmo electronics guarantees testing, repairing and sending back the unit within 10 days.
The main benefit of repairing a unit in contrast with buying a more expensive new one is an indication of the possible cause on the bike that appears from the broken electronic parts. Even if the malfunction is not in the ignition unit, but elsewhere in the electronic system. This information is supplied totally free of charge together with the repaired unit. This way you are able to replace the defective parts in the electrical system of the motorcycle and prevent the unit breaking again. This saves a lot of time and a great deal of unnecessary expense.
Repairing ignition systems of almost any kind of motorcycle is possible, also the so-called potted units. Hard potted units can only be tested. The measure of hardness can be judged by putting a fingernail in the potting. If a mark remains the unit is potted with a soft material that makes repairing possible.
Ad 2. Universal replacement ignition systems
It is not always possible to repair an ignition unit reliable. For example, irreparable damage on a printed circuit board due to burned out electronic parts. Also potted ignition units with a hard material are not repairable. In those cases Carmo electronics can offer a digital replacement ignition. This ignition system has been developed by Carmo electronics. The highest demands on reliability and accuracy will supply optimal performance and withstand severe vibrations and heavy loads. The digital replacement ignition unit is finished with an ultra-strong coating for optimal protection against extreme weather circumstances.
Carmo electronics has digital replacement ignition systems in stock and therefore can supply a digital replacement unit within 10 days.
One of the greatest advantages is a digitally programmed accelerate-detection invented by Carmo electronics. Beside the digitally programmed advance/retard mapping the accelerate-detection is supplied standard with a digital replacement ignition unit and considerably improves performance of your motorcycle!
Universal replacement unit: sophisticated software together with high-grade SMD technology makes it state-of-the-art Electronics with minimum dimensions and can be used on almost every motorcycle.
Another advantage of a digital replacement ignition of Carmo electronics is the possible cause of defect that appears from testing the original ignition unit. This in contrast with buying an expensive new ignition. Carmo electronics supplies this information free of charge with purchase of a digital replacement ignition unit.
You have the opportunity to replace defective parts in the electronic system of your motorcycle in advance so that burning out your ignition unit again will be prevented. This will save a lot of time and a great deal of unnecessary expense.
Unlike a new original ignition unit, the digital replacement ignition from Carmo electronics comes with 1 year warranty.
