Shock*Star Signal Transmission Line Products (Lead-In-Line, Quick Start and STD)

Shock*Star Products for Non-Electric Lead-in from Blaster’s Initiation Point to Blast Site. Shock*Star Signal Transmission Line products include Lead-In-Line, Quick Start and STD (Shock Tube with Detonator)

Shock*Star Lead-In-Line is used to allow a completely non-electric blasting system from the Blaster’s point of initiation all the way through the blast. Lead-In Line is available as 200, 500, 1000 or 2,500 foot spools to allow a single splice free signal line between the Blaster and the blast pattern. Polyethylene splicers are included with each case of Lead-In-Line for connecting the shock tube’s open end to a non-electric detonator used for starting the blast.

Shock*Star Quick Start is equipped with a Quick Relay Connector detonator for convenient splice-free starting at the first hole in a shock tube blast pattern.
