Using digital communication between an electronic blasting device and detonators
, the technology delivers tangible value with benefits ranging from improved blasting efficiency to enhanced safety.
are described as small discs, approximately 5cm (two inches) in diameter, with two lead strips either side.
The bombs planted, thus, had as many as three detonators
. The perpetrators believed that the three going off simultaneously would boost the bombs' potency.
The dependences of penetration rate of the mine imitator, displacement of the stud of the detonator
's cap towards capsule-detonator and penetration depth of the mine imitator into the soil on time obtained by the simulation using MATLAB 6  and LS-DYNA  are shown in Figs.
That was last Saturday, and Detonator
again had to settle for minor honours, but he ran very well, challenging front-runner Laterly from just inside the three-furlong marker, but was unable to subdue him.
But they are warning people that if they come across any of the the detonators

. Al Qaida in Europe claims responsibility for the bombings in a video found near a Madrid mosque.
Looking at the hardware specifically, there are three main components -*- the detonator
, the logger and the blaster.
This article focuses on the nonelectric delay detonator
, which has become the dominant type of detonator
in the commercial explosives market, replacing other products such as electric detonators
and safety fuse assemblies because it offers a higher degree of safety and greater ease of use.
New on the market is ICI's Excel shock-tube detonator
. A shock of compressed air activates the timing mechanism within the detonator
On Tuesday, after the arrest of a 38-year-old man suspected of critically injuring an officer during a shootout in Ypsonas, authorities were led to a remote location near Ayios Mamas where they found an Ak 47, 7.5 kilogrammes of Semtex, a detonator
, and a grenade detonator
As an extra benefit to the user, any delay can be assigned to any detonator
and the detonators
can be connected to the busline in any convenient order--not just in the firing order.
