Timing light is defined as a stroboscope which means that it is an instrument that is used to make cyclically moving object appear static or slow moving. It is used in an Otto cycle or a similar internal combustion engine for the purpose of setting the time of ignition. It is usually an instrument that is self contained and consists of a voltmeter, RPM meter and a dwell angle meter which are integrated into a broader device.

This gadget or appliance is linked with the ignition circuit and has the ability to light up the timing marks in an engine. This mark is an indicator that sets the timing of the ignition system in an engine. The timing light has inductive pickups that clamp about the plug wire and serves as a trigger for the strobe. Thus it serves the purpose of a strobe.
