Electronic blasting system adds reliability in the field

Featuring a new generation detonator, Daveytronic III electronic blasting technology consists of a new blasting machine with wireless capabilities and innovative software that reduces programming and diagnostic time. The new Daveytronic detonator features an electronic integrated delay module encased in a high pressure resistant resin. In addition to previously existing safety features, the new Daveytronic III includes Davey Bickford's smart shunt that permanently protects the fuse head until the time it's fired, eliminating the possibility of unintended initiation for a higher level of operating safety. This digital blasting system retains the same two-capacitor, two-way communication system of previous versions that alerts the blasting technician of missing, faulty or extra detonators, improving blast performance and safety. The Daveytronic III digital blasting system features an enhanced communication protocol and unique detonator identification numbers that reduce detonator program time by more than 50 percent.

Wireless blasting from up to one mile away

The Daveytronic Wireless Blasting System allows blasting technicians to remotely detonate single or multiple shots from up to one mile (1.6 km) away from the pattern, significantly improving safety during the blast and exceeding minimum distance requirements. It allows the blast engineer to configure blasting machines in a master-slave configuration using the remote trigger software. Modems (one for the master blasting machine and one for each slave) are required for communication between the master and slave machines.
