69 2.0 engine electronics

Hey can someone tell me what the gold colored box on the driver side of the engine bay is. It is about 6 inch tall 3 inch deep and wide. And has cooling fins on it. Looks like a similar to a small modern electronic ignition control box. Also there is a red button on top, what is it for.

Its a Delta Mk 10 . A very common aftermarket electronic ignition from back in the day. If I remember, the red button is to bypass it in case it stops working, or for testing.
