What does Lightoff mean?

5 posts in this topic

Hi.

I have a question. 

Igniting state is called 'lightoff'

What is the meaning and etymology of 'lightoff'?

It is an engineering sense to describe ignition as 'lightoff' rather than 'light'

Waiting for your answer!!

That abouts as good an explanation as any, but yes, the point at which fuel/air mix is ignited and

sustained combustion occurs indicated by a rapid rise in TIT,  fuel flow, rpm
