A company that develops explosives tracking and management systems has developed a solution to detonator tracking by placing a RFID device within the detonator.
The Global Tracking Solutions (GTS) innovation tracks detonators from construction to destruction.
Mistakes can be made with paper-based detonation tracking, making electronic tagging and tracking the preferred method for tracking blast equipment.
The company places a second identical RFID tag within the unit resulting in a product that contains a built in redundancy system.
RFID gives the mining industry the ability to identify every detonator with individual detonator ID numbers now recorded onto the box.
