Mil-Rugged Remote Firing Device (RFD)

The Remote Firing Device (RFD) initiates BOTH nonel shock tube AND electric caps and disrupters.

The powerful shock tube initiator (STI) provides a larger, more powerful flash than conventional STIs to reliably initiate nonel.

Electric shots receive a strong, 300 volts/3.6 joule current. Compare to a 70-cap blasting machine.

Each Remote Firing Device (RFD) transmitter will permit initiating up to five different shots in sequence per series.

The number of simultaneous initiations the Remote Firing Device (RFD) can perform per shot is unlimited, provided that the operator is equipped with a receiver for every initiation point.

The wireless command system features frequency-hopping, spread spectrum technology and 64-bit safety/security encryption.

Each receiver unit is programmed to respond only to commands from the transmitter it is shipped with – for an additional measure of safety and security. When ordering additional or replacement receivers, the new receivers can be properly coded by referencing the transmitter serial number.

Ruggedized packaging for tactical environments at high and low temperature extremes. Water-proof. Specifications subject to change without notice.
