What makes a Duke Pro initiator safe?
- Exceeds 1,000,000:1 probability of an unintentional fire.
(An extremely low probability of unintentional fire).
- A design that minimizes the probability of a failure.
- It functions when it should and does not function when it shouldn't.
- It does not accidentally trigger by electrical noise or mechanical shock.
- It self detects faults and safes the circuit.
- It has at least two lock-out functions.
- It won't malfunction, suffer permanent damage, or fire if it's
- dropped from 2 m onto a hard steel surface,
- submerged in 1 m of water,
- exposed to rain or salt spray,
- exposed to humidity (95% non-condensing),
- exposed to dust,
- exposed to vibration (loose cargo 20 years),
exposed to 25,000 Volts of static discharge
(Tested at 28 locations such exposed metal surfaces, battery connections),
- exposed to 150 V/m to 200 V/m of electromagnetic radiation at 40 Hz to 18 GHz,
- It must function properly at temperature extremes (-40 °C to +85 °C).
- Simple, and intuitive to use.
- Can be fired into a direct short without damage.
- Meets no-fire safety standards.
- Meets all-fire safety standards.
What makes an initiator reliable?
- Robust, power efficient design
- Long battery life
- Intuitive controls
- Designed for a life-time of use
- A warranty that backs any damage for as long as you own it
