is a fully approved hard wire exploder which is currently in service with more than 44 countries worldwide. From the
arctic to the tropics it has proven itself as a safe, reliable and cost effective system for the initiation of explosives,
mines, pyrotechnics and other electro-explosive devises (EED). Two versions of are available.The EXPLODER
is for use with standard NATO detonators and MKIV for the latest VA safety detonators which require a higher
energy firing output.
The four independant firing circuits are connected by means of spring loaded terminals. Circuit continuity is
checked by operating the appropriate TEST button. Operating the PRIME button causes the “READY” LED to
flash, indicating that the circuit is primed. This typically takes two seconds with the MKV and six seconds for
the MKIV version. While the “READY” LED is flashing, the load circuit may be fired by operating the appropriate
Circuit Select and FIRE buttons simultaneously. The short recycle time of the EXPLODER permits rapid, individual
firing of all four circuits, giving seven to eight times the potential detonating power of conventional dynamo type
A range of accessories are available for use with the EXPLODER, including Shock Tube Adaptors, Battery
Chargers and Test Meters.
The EXPLODER must be primed before any circuit can be fired, and firing requires the operation of two independent
push buttons. The output is inhibited when the initiator is not fully primed, thus preventing partial firing. For the
MKV, output energy cannot be released into a circuit whose resistance is more than 400 Ohms, and for the
MKIV, a circuit of more than 350 Ohms. Both these resistances are well below that of the human body, therefore
completely eliminating any electrical hazard to the operator.
