Dyno Nobel has launched the newest addition to its electronic initiation portfolio, the EZshot®.
This technology offers users the benefits of accurate electronic timing with the ease of use of the NONEL® shock tube, the company says.
“The EZshot detonator series is an exclusive design for underground perimeter blasting. This system gives the customer the ability to use electronic timing for improved perimeter control, helping them to save on time and overall production costs,” Dyno Nobel said.
“With the same J-Hook hookup as NONEL, no new training is required, allowing the customer to quickly move forward on all projects.”
The electronic detonator, EZshot LP, has a high-strength detonator in a heavy walled copper shell with an electronic circuit board timing chip providing precision and accuracy.
“The smart chip technology in the detonator delivers the timing needed that cannot be reached with tradition non-electric detonators,” the company said.
The electronic detonator comes in factory-programmed delay times, ranging from 1,100 to 8,000 milliseconds, with the long period delay timing ideal for underground perimeter blasting, it says.
The EZshot LP shock tube is identical to the trusted and familiar NONEL LP shock tube Dyno Nobel has been producing since the 1970s, in a new colour.
“This reliable design had stood the test of time and blasters will be familiar with the J-hook connection, virtually eliminating additional training time. EZshot LP takes advantage of the shock tube system allowing wireless communication from initiation to detonation,” the company said.
