Exel™ Start DS2

The Exel™ Start DS2 is a further refined electronic blasting machine for the safe initiation of Exel™ detonators. It consists of an energy source (battery), a voltage converter, a capacitor for energy accumulation, an electrode and pushbuttons to effect initiation. The electrical energy is converted to a powerful spark, which the electrode emits into the inside of the Exel™ Lead in Line tube to initiate the shock-wave reaction.
The Exel™ Start DS2 is powered by an ordinary 9 V alkaline battery that lasts for at least 500 initiations. When the “CHARGING”- button is pressed, the capacitor is charged up to 2500 V. Pressing the “FIRING”- button then emits a powerful spark that initiates the Exel™ Lead in Line. Note that the “CHARGING”- button must be kept depressed throughout, or else the capacitor will be discharged over an internal resistance. It is easy to change the electrode.
