RISI manufactures a line of Exploding Bridgewire (EBW) detonators for a variety of industrial applications. This page is

  • General Purpose: RP-80 • RP-81 • RP-83 • RP-85 • RP-87 • RP-3
  • Economy: RP-501 • RP-502

The general characteristics are:

High Precision > .999 < 35NS approx.500V
General Purpose > .997 < 100NS approx. 500V
Economy > .990 < 500NS approx. 500V

* Standard Deviation of overall function time. NS = nanoseconds
** Using a 1 ufd capacitor with 18” coax cable.

All RISI detonators can initiate most common military and civilian explosives.
