Electrical Topics

The Heinkel engineers created a solid machine with an even better electrical system. The electrical system follows the DIN 72552 standard. Now you know what all of those numbers mean!

Heinkel Tourists implement a battery assisted spark design. The Tourist will not work without a battery. Additionally, most Tourists have an electric starter, so strong batteries are a must.

Before you do any work on the electrical system, ALWAYS disconnect the batteries! Failure to do so can result in blown fuses or bulbs (inexpensive) or shorted coils (expensive).
