Datasheet
The Scorpion HB-600 is a powerful and rugged, compact light-weight Solid-State Electronic Capacitor Discharge Blasting Machine. The unit is completely sealed making it waterproof and impervious to dust, dirt, sand, and debris. It features EIT’s specially developed Heavy-Duty Push Down Binding Posts for quick and secure lead line attachment. The HB-600 incorporates 2 recessed covered pushbutton switches for Charge and Fire operations. For added safety, the operator must depress and maintain the “Charge” switch while the unit is indicating “Ready” to proceed to “Fire”, and in that order. This two-switch procedure ensures the operators intent to initiate. The Scorpion HB-600 offers rapid-charging and is engineered so that it may only fire when fully charged and maintaining verified armed specifications. A single 9V battery provides a lengthy service of Charge/Fire cycles, and loads smoothly through the side of the unit into a waterproof compartment secured in place by an easy-on/easy-off Battery Cap. The Scorpion HB-600 incorporates 2 stainless steel D-Ring attachment points allowing the user to attach a strap or other carrying accessory.
