The time fuse ZAG consists of a non-magnetic housing accommodating the complete assembly. The ZAG is absolute non-magnetic according to STANAG 2897, class A.. It is waterproof down to a depth of 60 m. A handle retained by a safety pin serves as activating element.
The ZAG has a interface consisting of a plug to program the required delay time with the time setting device COMBIFIRE. This plug is also used to connect the detonator.
The ZAG can be programmed with a time from 11 minutes up to 24 hours. The delay time can be entered as real time (e.g. 12:01 o’clock) or as differential time in minutes (e.g. 45 min).The time is entered by the operator via menu.
During the delay time the output stage is safe. One minute before ignition the output stage will be started and armed.
The detonator for the ZAG is modified electric detonator like the German DM 42 with a plug connector, to guarantee a easy handling under water without cables .
