Application

ROBIS allows users to fire a blast remotely using an on-bench blaster and remote trigger, helping to improve safety and encourage best practice within surface mining and quarrying environments. 

The system consists of a RECEIVER which remains close to the blast and is connected to the shock tube, and a TRANSMITTER which is used to fire it. The shotfirer can initiate a blast from a firing location outside of the danger zone and benefit from enhanced visibility before and during the blast.
