Initiation using electric detonator
NONEL rounds may also be initiated with an electric detonator. The electric detonator is then connected to the Îľclip connector that is used to initiate the round. The electric detonator is taped to the NONEL with the detonator bottom pointing in the direction of the shock wave in the tube. The electric detonator should be well covered with earth, drill cuttings etc, as the strength of this detonator is considerably greater than that of an Îľclip. Shrapnel from the detonator may cause cut-offs of the NONEL tubes in the round. Note that when the electric detonator is connected to the round the whole round is exposed to the same risks as when electric detonators are used in the round with regard to thunderstorms, static electricity, stray currents etc.
