The glow system is designed to switch on and off to provide sufficient heat to allow the Diesel to atomise until the engine is operating at its optimum working temperature. †

Effectively the heating coil inside the glow plug should have enough insulation to retain the heat as long as possible, those with a narrower tip have the best performance.
