bluestar oven ignition system. Glow bar? Spark?

Hello,
Does anybody know what kind of ignition system the Blue Star RCS system has?
Glow bar?
Spark?

If it is a glow bar, does anybody know how many Watts?
(Not exactly info they tout in their website propaganda)

I tried to e-mail them and got no response.
I called them and was first told that it's a gas oven and does not use electricity.
Then I was sent to the parts dept. and they told me it was 120amps. That would mean it was drawing 14400 watts. I think I could melt steel with that.
I think they meant it needs 120 volts (typical household power) but that doesn't answer my question.

We need to know this as we are "off grid" and simply can not run an oven if it needs 1600watts (or something similar)

We need something with spark ignition.

Thanks.
