Remote Blasting Machine
Remote blasting machine ARES is designed to remotely explode electric detonators and check blasting line resistance.
Ares consists of one control/transmitter unit and up to four firing/receiver units.
The control unit is used to send commands to the receiver units and monitor the status of each receiver unit.
The receivers are connected to the blasting lines and detonators. Receivers can check the blasting line resistance and explode electric detonators by remote commands from the control unit.
Additional repeater can be used to double the communication range.
