N Series Electric Fusehead and Igniter
The N Series Electro-Explosive devices are constructed on the basis of a patented and original fusehead design. A robust insulated base tin-copper waferboard structure provides excellent resistance to mechanical damage from vibration, shock or acceleration. The bridgewire is soldered very securely over a considerable length of the base, ensuring the integrity of the fusehead.
As a result of a very carefully controlled manufacturing process, the bridgewire resistance is very consistent, providing an unsurpassed reliability of the device.
Electrical Characteristics Range
The characteristics listed below represent the range of specifications of all the standard product types in the Series.
