Automatic setting: Range data is derived from the fire control system
of the tank, and then translated into the timesetting.
This is then transmitted to the fuze, by the
fuze-setter, through induction methods.
Automated by the system fuze-setter, through
receiving coil when fuze is set to “auto”. The data
is kept in memory for a practically unlimited period
of time, or until it is reset , generated by the fire
control system, and transmitted by the fuze-setter.
Manual Setting: Setting is performed on “range to target” data.
Range indication is internally translated into
Digital setting, positive self-locking by three
The maximum range deviation of the fuze is 10m.
The standard deviation of the delay error is less than 0.01 seconds
(when on automatic setting mode).
