RDC provides an alternate approach for point-to-point signal transmission when the shock from detonating materials cannot be tolerated due to shock sensitive equipment and/or the material in the surround area cannot withstand the high energy shrapnel from detonating cord. The RDC delivers heat and flame to the surround area when the sheath is liberated. Based on this metal sheath rupture, RDC is currently used for ignition of various propellant applications (pyrogens, rocket motors and automotive passenger side inflators). The coreload (energetic weight per linear foot) can range from 2 grain/ft (transmission and small initiation) to 20 grain/ft or higher (propellant ignition and other forms of work energy release). PacSci EMC can provide end terminations for more defined interconnections (see the RDCTL product page for more information).
