The Scorpion HB-SBS (Small Blasting System) is a powerful and compact, rugged light-weight Solid-State Electronic Capacitor Discharge Blasting Machine meant for Electric Initiation and Non-Electric Shock Tube Initiation. It is completely sealed making it waterproof and impervious to dust, dirt, sand, and debris. One 9V battery provides hundreds of Charge/Fire cycles, and loads smoothly through the side of the unit into a waterproof compartment secured in place by an easy-on/off battery cap that requires no tools.   Electric Initiation: The Scorpion HB-SBS features EIT’s specially developed Heavy-Duty Push Down Binding Posts for quick and secure lead line attachment, even if wearing gloves. The unit incorporates 2 recessed covered pushbutton switches for Charge/Fire operation and is engineered for rapid charging.   Non-Electric Initiation: The Scorpion HB-SBS incorporates a separate 2.5kV high voltage circuit and capacitor, different from that of the Electric Initiator, to create a pulse that initiates non-electric shock tube. Using two separate initiation circuits protects the output of either system and insures dual reliability. The HB-SBS uses a guarded pushbutton switch located on the side of the unit to activate the Non-Electric system.

Superior Field Reliability

Scorpion devices are built with the highest quality electronics and components so you can count on them to work in even the most unforgiving environments. Engineered for long life, Scorpion devices continue to provide reliable performance for decades in the field where other manufacturers break down after only months.

Quick and easy battery replacement in 1 step

Scorpion units are designed with a waterproof battery compartment for quick and easy replacement. No need to remove screws and, as with competitors machines, expose the wiring and internal components just to change the batteries. EIT developed the one step on and off compartment cover to let you replace a battery anywhere- no tools required.
