These fire units (exploder) are designed for testing in laboratories or production line where users safety is at stake.

This range has been specifically designed to perform initiators test according to the AK-LV 16 (US-CAR) specification which requires to generate a constant current followed by a current ramps

These firing Units are built on an innovative design, using the latest technologies, are fully digital and fully remotely controllable.
