This is a detonator made up of a low power capsule (Strength 1) attached to a surface connector whose purpose is to connect the rows of a same shot in blasting in which the boreholes have been primed with Exel™ Handidet™ or Exel™ MS. Exel™ Conectadet also comes rolled up in reels (long size) aimed at initiating blasting from the safety area.
Exel™ Conectadet non-electric detonators have 4 main components:
- Low-power capsule (Force 1) assembled in the interior of a surface connector.
- Yellow shock tube, which conveys the signal to the delay capsule. When the tube is initiated, it transmits through the interior a low-energy shock wave, which initiates the delays inside the capsule.
- Label, element that indicates the delay time and detonator length.
- J connector, which allows connection between the detonating cord and the non-electric tube, if required.
