EZshot offers users the benefits of accurate electronic timing with the ease of use of its NONEL shock tube. The system gives the customer the ability to use electronic timing for improved perimeter control, helping them to save on time and overall production costs. With the same J-Hook hookup as NONEL, EZshot does not require new training, allowing the customer to quickly move forward on all projects.
This 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 traditional non-electric detonators. EZshot comes in factory programmed delay times, ranging from 1,100 to 8,000 milliseconds. The long-period delay timing is ideal for underground perimeter blasting.
The EZshot LP shock tube is identical in design to the NONEL LP shock tube that Dyno Nobel has been producing since the 1970s, but with a new colour. Dyno said this reliable design has stood the test of time, and operators will be familiar with the J-Hook connection, eliminating the need for additional training. EZshot LP takes advantage of the shock tube system allowing wireless communication from initiation to detonation.
