... Basically the Lightspeed Ignition unit provides an output in millivolts that directly corresponds to the advance, ie. 0-40 mv  equals 0-40 degrees of advance.  ...
Bonjour,
For my training, can this person use a thermocouple input type K ?
I read in the first link : "Thermocouple Inputs are differential inputs that support from -4mV to 40mV, common mode of +/- 5V"

The red thermocouple input connected to 0 Volt, the yellow to the sensor.

For example, with this sensor definition:

sensor={
id=Lightspeed Ignition
function=POSITION
pins=C25_P13/25 C25_P12/24 C25_P11/23 C25_P10/22 C25_P9/21 C25_P8/20 C25_P7/19 C25_P6/18 C25_P5/17 C25_P4/16 C25_P3/15 C25_P2/14 C37_P27/28 C37_P36/37 S25_P13/25 S25_P12/24 S25_P11/23 S25_P10/22 S25_P9/21 S25_P8/20 S25_P7/19 S25_P6/18 S25_P5/17 S25_P4/16 S25_P3/15 S25_P2/14 S37_P27/28 S37_P36/37 
name=°ADV
min_val=0
max_val=40
resolution=0
round=1
is_piecewise=0
low_coeff={
c_x4=0
c_x3=0
c_x2=0
c_x1=1000
c_x0=0
}
low_resistance=NONE
low2high_cross=0
high_coeff={
c_x4=0
c_x3=0
c_x2=0
c_x1=0
c_x0=0
}
high_resistance=NONE
high2low_cross=0
}

Correct ?
