Electronic Detonators – Digishot®
Electronic detonators are modern, fully programmable and intelligent high strength detonators. Each detonator contains a circuit board that can be programmed to initiate at precise millisecond timing within a firing sequence. Detonators are individually programmed via the use of a handheld tagger and initiated via a bespoke blasting box.
EPC-UK supplies the DigiShot electronic detonator to the UK market. Electronic detonators can be used in a variety of applications including quarrying, mining, demolition and other specialist areas. The high strength detonator is suitable for initiating most priming charges. Complex firing patterns can be easily transferred to the detonators through the use of computer based software, when implemented properly the highly accurate initiation timings offer benefits in vibration control, fragmentation and general blast optimisation.
The digital firing system used for initiation means each firing circuit and individual detonator is tested and a record retained in the software prior to firing. The circuit can only be initiated by specialist firing equipment offering benefit in safety and security over traditional systems. The DigiShot system can be fired in a remote configuration offering improved control over the blast danger zone.
