Sorry i cant remember the reading as i only connected it to make sure there was a curcit.

Being the fact that it is in reality a magnet and a coil its just the same as a dynamo.

The faster that a magnet is passed in front of it the higher the voltage output, and its this that the ECU reads to determin when to spark.

I dont mean to sound like a boffin . I got all this from You Tube,
