    1673 Remote Firing Device Controller

    1673-remote-firing-device-controller.jpg

    THE 1673 REMOTE FIRING DEVICE (RFD) is an intelligent and discrete 2-way radio controlled remote
    blast initiation system.

    The radio system’s signal is digitally encoded (addressed). The latest microprocessor and message encoding/validation technology has been combined to prove a SAFE, RELIABLE and ACCURATE Remote Firing Device. 

    Rothenbuhler Engineering engineered this system using over 20 years of military and commercial RFD experience.
      
    HIGHLIGHTS AND NEW FEATURES:


    FIRE UP TO 64 DUAL-OUTPUT REMOTES
    The Controller Unit is capable of commanding up to 64 remotes that can be either electric or non-electric, in 8-Remote groups.


    EVENT LOG WITH GPS
    The history event log keeps a record of information such as unit state, post blast motion detect value, firing voltage level, battery level and the date and time the event was logged.


    With the GPS included, each event will also have the longitude and latitude of where the unit was when the event was recorded.


    POST BLAST MOTION
    DETECTION
    Each Remote unit has a sensor that measures the seismic motion that may be expected when a successful blast detonation has occurred.

    The Controller unit then reports that a post-fire motion was detected, useful in subsurface operations when the successful initiation of a blast cannot be easily determined.

     

    AUTOMATIC
    DISARM WITH TIMER
    The automatic-disarming function ensures that the unit returns to a safe state in the event of a loss of communications, after a time out period.


    SEQUENTIAL FIRING
    MODE
    The Sequential Fire feature allows the user to space the firings of each Remote unit so that they do not fire
    at the same time, 0-2 seconds between the firing of each Remote.

    This feature is particularly useful when firing multiple blocks where a delay is needed between each block.


    STANDBY MODE
    Both the Controller and Remote Units can run on standby for typically 10-14 hours before recharging is required.


    RETRACTABLE & GUARDED ANTENNA
    Raised vertically during operation and retracted into an antenna guard for extra protection during transport and storage.


    LCD DISPLAY WITH BACKLIGHTING
    The LCD display provides information that is supplemental to the basic operation of the 1673 RFD. Whenever a switch is pressed, the LCD display’s backlighting function will be enabled. After 30 seconds of inactivity, the backlighting will automatically turn off to save battery power. The LCD is rated for -20 to 70°C (-4 to 158°F).


    INCREASED FIRING CAPACITY
    Minimum of 350V, allowing for approximately 75 electric caps in series, or a maximum circuit resistance of 150
