Initiator Firing Switches

Excelitas’ Solid-State Initiator Firing Switches are miniature advanced thyristors optimized for the precise control and rapid charge transfer needed for the reliable activation of Low Energy Exploding Foil Initiators (LEEFI) including Excelitas’ own Blue Chip® Detonator.

Due to their small size and reliable operation, SolidTRON Initiator Firing Switches are widely used throughout the weapons industry in various MIL-STD-1316 compliant Electronic Safe and Arm Devices (ESAD), MIL-STD-1901A compliant rocket motor Ignition Safety Devices (ISD) as well as other Firing Module (FM) and Capacitor Discharge Unit (CDU)  applications.
