The SafeBlast™ Centralised Blasting System (CBS) in conjunction with the SafeStart™ Instantaneous Electronic Detonator offers improved levels of safety and reliability for blasting operations in underground mines.
Once all workers have been evacuated, blasting is carried out from a centralised computer, under strict control and supervision. The system allows for all blasts within a mine to be synchronized from a dedicated computer on surface, usually the mine’s control room. The system consists of a host computer networking with a plurality of Network Slave Stations that facilitate the ultimate arming, priming and firing of SafeStart™ Instantaneous Electronic Detonators. On-board diagnostics, allows for easy fault finding while real time information allows for system and production monitoring.
