Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Ignition spark for battery operation
German term or phrase: Zündträger
Anordnung der Elektroden sind ein geringes Gewicht, ein weiter Temperatureinsatzbereich und die hohe Funkenenergie bei niedriger Stromaufnahme vorteilig.
Die besondere Zündträgerbauweise erlaubt eine kundenindividuelle Applikationsabstimmung hinsichtlich Funkenbrenndauer, Funkenfrequenz und energetischer Eigenschaften.
Auf Ihre Wünsche zugeschnittene Zusatzapplikationen wie GPS-Tracking, sensorlose integrierte Flammüberwachung und Online-Tankfüllstandsüberwachung sind problemlos ergänzbar.

Can someone suggest a good term for Zündträger? Ignition carrier is what I have found, but that sounds crude to me. Has anyone used it before?

ignition carrier

I think this is the correct term here. A charge carrier in a semiconductor is a commonly used term.

Asker: Hello Kartik, charge carrier may be alright, but ignition carrier doesn't sound too great, ain't it? Have you used ignition carrier before?
