Next Generation i-kon™ II enhancements  

Subscribe to all products in this area

With the release of the i-kon™ II system, new features and improved functionality enables even more accurate blasts, and improves handling and operational
efficiency.

    Greater precision

    • Timing precision has improved by a factor of two from 0.01% to 0.005%, reducing the chance of firing out of order and increasing the ability to control exactly when the detonators will detonate.
    • An increase in maximum delay time from 15 to 30 seconds allows very different types of blasting to be designed – both in large underground and more sophisticated surface mining.
    • Improved timing precision enables these much longer delays while retaining individual hole timing.

    Comparison of timing precision between i-kon™, i-kon™ II and a major competitor. i-kon™ II doubles the maximum delay time of i-kon™ whilst maintaining the same time variance considered best in the industry.

    Greater reliability

    • Five times louder back-signal (as compared to i-kon™) means the detonator is able to overcome more capacitance on the line.
    • ASIC and PCB developed in conjunction with an Aerospace partner that normally develops chips for satellite and space exploration equipment, to achieve reliability by design.

    Greater convenience and efficiency

    • The new connector features two harness wire slots enabling splicing and connections to other legwires.
    • A Logger dock makes pre-logging quicker and easier with no need to open the connector.
    • The duplex harness wire features a single wire, single slot, increasing the speed at which the blast crew can connect up the detonators.
    • Wire length encoded in ID number. This is beneficial in decked blasts as it helps the user ensure which deck is being logged.
    • Three times faster programming reduces programming time per Logger from approximately 5 minutes to less than 2 minutes.

    The new glove-friendly connector is easier to use.
