Ignition Coil

In older vehicles a single (large) coil would serve all the spark plugs via the ignition distributor. In later models - 1998 onwards, many of the vehicles such as Mercedes and BMW had multiple smaller ignition coils one per spark plug or one per two spark plugs - two coils in a four-cylinder engine, or three coils in a six-cylinder engine. The single large ignition coil puts out about 20 kV, and the multiple smaller ignition coils put out about 15 kV. These coils may be remotely mounted or they may be placed on top of the spark plug. Where ignition coils are individually applied per cylinder, they may all be contained in a single molded block with multiple high-tension terminals. This is commonly called a coil-pack - often installed in the later Volkswagen and Saab models. A bad coil pack may cause a slight or not so slight misfire, bad fuel economy, loss in power.

Beru Ignition Coils

Pencil Coils

Single spark ignition coils that require no ignition cables, featuring the below characteristics:
  • Mounted directly on the spark plug;
  • Designed to be temperature resistant;
  • High-value materials for optimum ratio of weight to volume;
  • With or without electronics module depending on the vehicle type.

Ignition Coil Rails


BERU coil rails the alternative to pencil coils or plug top coils / coil on plugs: multiple ignition coils presented in a common housing with only one compact plug connection featuring the below characteristics:

  • Simple mounting on the engine;
  • As double spark or single spark technology.

Block Ignition Rails


BERU delivers quality Block Ignition Rails with the below characteristics:

  • Resistant to high temperatures;
  • Static high voltage distribution;
  • Double spark coils with and without integrated electronics modules for 4, 5 and 6-cylinder vehicles.

Plug Top Coils


Built and designed to suit modern downsized engines, light smart plug top coils feature the following characteristics:

  • Great combustion energy & high ignition voltage;
  • Temperature resistant, therefore durable and reliable;
  • With or without interference suppressed spark plug and electronic module depending on the vehicle type.

Coils for Ignition Systems with Ignition Distributors

BERU applies its expertise to coils with ignition distributors. These ignition processes see the generated high voltage going from the coil to the distributor. The distributor distributes this high voltage to the corresponding spark plugs.

Distributor Ignition Coils (Single Ended Coils)



  • Temperature-resistant;
  • For vehicles with transistor ignition;
  • High quality materials for optimum weight-volume ratio;
  • With mounted or integrated electronics module.

Cylinder Coils



  • Temperature resistant;
  • Rotating high voltage distribution;
  • For vehicles of older generations with contact-controlled battery ignition;
  • Established and proven solution.
