An advanced, compact high-energy capacitive discharge blasting machine capable of initiating a minimum of 75 EBCs (tested through 340 ohms). Bridgewire and firing line continuity is testable through the integrated haptic (tactile feedback) circuit tester with redundant LED. Intrinsic safeties include automatic abort, internal shunt, boot-protected switches, touchproof output terminals with downward facing inputs, and fuse protected testing circuit.
