Automatic firing is achieved by holding the key in the fire position until the detonator or NONEX Systems Ltd PBC fires. When the key is released any residual charge left in the capacitor is discharged through a resistor. The exploder becomes automatically safe if the key is removed at any time. A neon indicator flashes to indicate that firing has taken place.
The table in spec sheet download below describes the recommended circuit resistance which can be successfully fired with the Arbra Beethoven battery operated exploders. These figures assume bottom limits for the exploder and detonator manufacturers published figures for 99% firing success.
