AEM High Output IGBT Inductive "Smart" Coil

Does anyone know how to wire these into a PS1000?

High Output IGBT Inductive "Smart" Coil

This is what I have from AEM on the pinout:

PINOUT
A: Coil Trigger (0-5V signal)
B: Coil Trigger (Ref Ground)
C: Ground to Cylinder Head
D: Battery Ground
E: Battery Positive (Relay or switched ignition)

The thing I'm worried about is that the PS1000 pins DPO5 - DP08 are 12v signals and the AEM requires 5v. Correct?

The coils will work just fine with the signal from Haltech. I'm not even sure the AEM spec is correct. Before they started rebranding this coil I had a discussion with 034 Motorsports on this topic and was told 12V input.

Think of it as 3 wires instead of 5.
A: coil trigger from Haltech
B,C,D: gang together to the ENGINE for Ground.( I also ran extra ground to frame)
E: is 12 volts from Switched ignition.

The ground should not go to the frame. If you gang them together, run them all to the engine. Otherwise, set it up as the instructions say with the primary ground going to the battery and the other two to the engine.

Have everything wired in now. Just need to make the plug wires and it's ready to fire back up. Thanks for the help.

I've gotta say that I'm very disappointed in these coils so far. Just tried my first pull with them. Boost was set to 18psi, 400 cc/min of meth/water, and dwell set to 4.5 ms. About 6000 RPM, the ignition started to break up, and EGTs went through the roof on both rotors. My old MSD LSX coils would handle 25 psi and 8500 RPM no problem. Pretty pissed at myself for swapping them out based on the great reviews I had heard about the AEM coils.

You've got an issue somewhere other than the coils. We've run them to over 30 psi on a rotary with lots of methanol.

It's possible. Changed the plugs out, and the egts looked good all the way to 7000 rpm...........when I lost 3rd gear. The final verdict will have to wait a while.
