TDS Release Date: Day April 2021
The AXXIS TITANIUM electronic initiation system is the newest generation of AXXIS technology. The AXXIS TITANIUM electronic initiation system incorporates numerous handling, performance, and safety improvements built upon the highly successful AXXIS GII system.
The AXXIS TITANIUM electronic initiation system is comprised of four components:
The AXXIS TITANIUM electronic initiation system is designed for use in most general and specialized mining, quarrying, and construction blasting applications on the surface or underground. The AXXIS TITANIUM electronic initiation system passes ARP 1717-1: The South African National Standard for the design and approval of EDD initiation systems for mining and civil applications.
AXXIS TITANIUM EDDs safety includes dual capacitors that split the system into two. The logic capacitor is used to communicate and test the detonator and does not have enough storing energy to fire the fuse head. The firing capacitor is only used for firing. The logic capacitor has an internal shunt that when commanded switches gates from logic mode to firing mode. Only in firing mode is the firing capacitor then calibrated and charged for blasting.
The AXXIS TITANIUM system utilises dual voltage for detonator logging and testing at low voltage. Error testing is reported by exemption thus considerably speeding up the testing and blasting process at the firing point. It takes less then two minutes to finalize a blast for firing regardless of the number of detonators.
AXXIS TITANIUM Electronic Delay Detonator performance features include a non-volatile detonator memory. Detonators are programmed and tested during logging by writing the desired firing times and log sequence number into each detonators memory. Once detonators are programmed during logging there is no need to re-programme on powering up again. The detonator history is recorded permanently to the detonator memory making it ideal for track and trace.
AXXIS TITANIUM EDDs have engineered cables that are highly resistant to damage and cut offs due to a balanced combination of tensile, elongation, and abrasion resistance. This results in a very low rate of misfire occurrence even under the most challenging hole loading conditions.
AXXIS EDD technology has a proven track record of delivering mega blasts with thousands of detonators.

This product may be used in ground temperatures from -40°C to a maximum of +80°C. If the application requires use outside of this temperature range please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance.
Reactive ground is typically characterised by the presence of sulphide mineralization. If the application requires use in known reactive ground, or in untested sulphide bearing ground, please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance.
The recommended maximum sleep time is 45 days. Sleep time is dependent on factors such as hole depth, explosive column type, and ground water conditions. If the application requires longer in-hole sleep time, please consult with a BME Technical Representative for guidance.
The storage life for AXXIS TITANIUM EDDs is 60 months under good storage conditions. Please consult with a BME Technical Representative for site specific storage life guidance.
