The Scorpion HB-55 is a compact and rugged light-weight Solid-State Electronic Capacitor Discharge Blasting Machine which incorporates a Circuit Continuity Indicator (CCI) allowing the operator to verify that a complete circuit is attached to the Output Binding Posts prior to initiation. The CCI uses a secure blasting-safe signal to detect when a circuit is present and informs the operator with a green LED. When “Charge” is depressed the CCI is immediately disengaged. The CCI will only reengage when “Charge” is released and the redundant safety allows use of the indicator once again.   The Scorpion HB-55 is a completely sealed unit 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, even when the user is wearing gloves. The HB-55 incorporates 2 guarded pushbutton switches for Charge and Fire operations. For safety, the operator must depress and maintain the “Charge” switch while the unit is indicating “Armed” to proceed to “Fire”, and in that order. This two-switch procedure ensures the operators intent to initiate. The Scorpion HB-55 offers rapid-charging and is engineered so that it may only fire when fully charged and maintaining verified armed specifications. A 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/easy-off Battery Cap. The Scorpion HB-55 incorporates 2 attachment points for a factory supplied detachable Belt Loop offering easy carrying and accessory options.
