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 Loggers are robust, hand-held devices for the logging and testing of AXXIS TITANIUM Electronic Detonators. These mobile devices are manufactured by Trimble and have an AXXIS developed POD that docks onto the device. The POD contains the detonator communication circuit and this enables the logging and programming of AXXIS TITANIUM Electronic Detonators. The AXXIS TITANIUM Logger can read and write to the detonator’s non-volatile memory, test a single detonator, test multiple detonators and transfer the logged blast files to the AXXIS TITANIUM Blasting Box.
AXXIS TITANIUM Loggers are easy and convenient to handle. They operate on the Android operating system which facilitates the upload of history files, current logging activity, reporting applications and web pages.
In order to operate AXXIS TITANIUM Blasting Boxes (in Blaster Box mode) at blast firing time, one AXXIS TITANIUM Logger is configured and designated as the Key Logger. The Key Logger generates a one-time pin to configure the AXXIS TITANIUM Blasting Boxes (in Blaster Box mode). As a security measure, any AXXIS TITANIUM Blasting Boxes (in Blaster Box mode) that has not been configured for a blast and bound through the one-time pin on the Key Logger will not function for that blast. At the safe firing point, the Key Logger and the one-time pin is also required to arm the AXXIS TITANIUM Blasting Box (in Controller Box mode). Upon blast completion, all AXXIS TITANIUM Loggers and Blasting Boxes return to a neutral un-configured state.
AXXIS EDD technology has a proven track record of delivering mega blasts with thousands of detonators.

AXXIS TITANIUM electronic delay detonators may only be programmed, tested, and fired with AXXIS TITANIUM Loggers and AXXIS TITANIUM Blasting Boxes. Do not attempt to program, test, or fire AXXIS TITANIUM EDDs with other blasting equipment. Never mix electronic delay detonators and/or components from different manufacturers.
AXXIS TITANIUM Loggers and Blasting Boxes need to be calibrated and serviced by BME qualified personnel or providers every 2 years.
Always use AXXIS TITANIUM harness wire to tie-in blasts. Do not substitute similar looking harness wire as the performance specifications may not be the same.
Although BME AXXIS TITANIUM cables are engineered and constructed for challenging work environments, care should still be exercised when loading and stemming to avoid cutting or damaging downlines.
The AXXIS TITANIUM Logger may be operated in temperatures from -30°C to a maximum of +60°C. If the application requires use outside of this temperature range please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance.
AXXIS TITANIUM EDDs Loggers are robust electronic instruments that are engineered to be water and dust resistant (IEC 60529 IP65 and IP68) and drop shock resistant (IEC 60069-2-32: 1975). AXXIS TITANIUM EDD Loggers are not waterproof. Do not submerge AXXIS TITANIUM EDD Loggers in water.
AXXIS TITANIUM Loggers are robust electronic instruments that need to be used, charged, and stored with care. The AXXIS TITANIUM Logger may be stored in temperatures from -40°C to a maximum of +70°C. Please consult with a BME Technical Representative for site specific guidance.
