TIME DELAY SETTING

Inductive Setting System: time delay is transmitted directly from the fuze setter into the fuze by inductive means. Manual setting: • Manually operated from 3.0 to 199.8 seconds in 0.1 second increments. • Digital setting, positive self-locking by three setting rings. • Unlimited setting storage time (no use of batteries). • Point detonating super quick functioning when 199.9 seconds. Time setting is selected.
