Any detonator may miss an occasional fire command or two due to noise or interference, which then results in a misfire.
Issuing simple and redundant fire commands raises the risk of timing offset in the blast array.
To ensure the highest reliability during firing, Austin Powder employs multiple sequenced fire commands (MSFC).
The detonators in the E*STAR system rely on precisely timed fire commands.
Austin Powder’s MSFC standards assure that the detonators receive at least one command to properly function at its delay-time, providing one of the greatest reliabilities in the industry.
