SmartShot Benefits

The benefits of the SmartShot system include:

  • Reliable and Accurate Timing
           - The SmartShot electronic initiation system enables users to achieve a variety of benefits
              through accurate timing.
  • Ease-of-Use and Speed of Deployment

           - Hole-to-hole connections are quick and easy with large, robust, water-resistant

           - Sections of the blast can be connected at the same time by multiple users before
              programming of the system.

           - Auto-programming allows the user to program strings of holes from a single point.

           - Holes in a string can be programmed individually or auto-programmed, thus allowing the
              user to choose the programming method for that operation.

  • Blast Design Flexibility

           - The SmartShot system allows for all combinations of fully programmable detonators, with
             the added benefit of auto- programmability.

           - The system can be applied to almost any blast application.

           - Between-row delays can be individually programmed.

           - The system is designed with software that can handle multiple decks.

  • Safety Features

           - Multiple levels of hardware and software security.

           - Visual blasting signals on the bench.

           - Password protected software and hardware.

           - Physical Smart Key.

           - Can only be initiated with equipment specifically designed to integrate with the SmartShot

  • Wireless Remote Blasting

          - The blast can be initiated either locally from the SmartShot Bench Box or a wired
             connection or via wireless remote firing from the SmartShot Base Station

  • Multiple Blast Configuration

          -The SmartShot system allows the user to initiate up to 4 different synchronised
            blasts from one master SmartShot Base Station.
