Glow plugs

Pencil type Glow Plugs
Pencil type glow plugs are much more efficient and attain operating temperature within six seconds due to its special construction and materials used.

Glow Duration Unit
Modern vehicles use an electronic timer relay for switching 'ON' and 'OFF' the Glow Plugs. This timer is known as Glow Duration Unit (GDU) which does the following basic functions: - Dash Board lamp indication on readiness of engine to start. - Switches 'OFF' the Glow Plug after a preset time preventing battery discharge.

(Post Glow) In Addition, GDU has built in features like the reverse polarity, short circuit and over voltage protection.
