TIMETRAP Delay Time Recorder
The TimeTrap™ Delay Time Recorder has been designed to measure the internal pyrotechnic delay in electric and nonelectric detonators. With the standard unit, the accuracy of measure is 1 microsecond. There is an upgrade available to increase the accuracy of the timing to 100 nanoseconds. With the internal electric firing circuit that will allow the energization of electric detonators and the measurement of the time from energization to the time of initiation. Nonelectric detonators uses a photo sensor on the shocktube to measure the start time and then measures the time of initiation for a calculation of a total delay.
