    CE4 Commander

    The best blast on time, every time.

The new CE4 Commander System from DetNet is a superior advanced blasting system and is easy to use, ensuring the best blast, on time, every time.

CE4 Commander

This is a multi-purpose device that is used as a Bench Commander, Repeater and Base Commander, and it controls the entire blast.

  • Limits user interface through: automatic detonator detection, testing and fast programming.
  • Wirelessly controlled by the CE4 Tagger or tablet.
  • Up to 10 Commanders can be deployed for a single blast using long distance RF communication from a blasting point.
  • It has four channels that can connect up to 400 detonators, giving a total capacity of 1600 detonators per Commander.
  • By verifying the voltage, it can blast through high levels of leakage.
  • Boasts a unique and robust design, with a built-in long-range antenna, that can handle the harshest mining conditions.
  • The blast is initiated with contactless NFC (Near Field Communication) BlastCards.

CE4 Tagger

The CE4 Tagger is a leading innovation from DetNet and the best of its kind in the industry.

    • Tests leakage and troubleshoots the bench before leaving.
    • Single device on the bench tagging; can test up to 300* detonators at a time.
    • Scratch proof glass screen provides excellent visibility.
    • User alerts engage multiple sensory formats: tactile (vibration), audible (speaker) feedback and visual alerts through high-bright LEDs.
    • GPS enabled to aid in detonator trouble-shooting.
    • Excellent battery management technology and standard USB charging.
    • Wireless control of Commander to execute arm & fire.
*Can test up to 400 detonators from 4G-TO4 (MMU) product.

4G Detonator

The new generation 4G Detonator is a fully programmable electronic detonator that is suitably tailored to fit all types of blasting operations. The design has evolved from the remarkable safety principles of the 3G detonator.

  • Redesigned Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) with 15 times more memory, which allows the storage and tracking of identification numbers.
  • Delay time and unique ID is fed directly into the detonator during on-bench tagging.
  • Verification of sufficient firing voltage at the furthest detonator, before the user presses the fire keys.
  • Down-hole wire length and other critical information is stored in the expanded non-volatile memory during detonator assembling.
  • GPS co-ordinates, time and date of tagging/blasting and other critical information can be saved in the detonator's memory.

Software Interface

  • The Tablet connects wirelessly to the bench Commander and becomes the user interface with bigger & more readable information.
  • The Tablet enables a full colour graphic interface.
  • You can download and view the full detonator list.
  • You can access the full blast design with a helicopter view and blast plan simulation.
  • Consolidate planned versus actual tagged list during fault-finding.
  • Execute the firing command.

Deployment Method

The system offers 2 deployment method options:

Tag by plan for advanced blasting:
A Pre-designed ViewShot blast plan is downloaded from PC to the CE4 Tagger. The plan may include timing, or timing could be assigned at a later point.

The Tagger automatically performs the following functions:

  • Writes the unique ID and timing (if available) into the detonator during tagging.
  • Allows adjustment of the plan during tagging, for example the insertion of new holes.
  • The timing on all detonators can be assigned or updated in one step should the timing on the plan be changed.

Time assignment for non-complex blasts:

  • The CE4 Tagger simply assigns a time to each detonator - manually or with automatic increments.
  • When connected to the harness wire, the Commander automatically discovers and tests detonators with increased speed and performance.


Yellow and Red BlastCards
  • Uses Near Field Communication (NFC) to wirelessly interact with the Commander.
  • Encrypted blast commands and RF settings are stored in the card.
  • BlastCards are password protected to ensure safe blasting outcomes.

Unique Features

  • Fast and simple “tag by plan” deployment method.
  • Automatic check to ensure the correct number of detonators per channel.
  • Autonomous detection and testing of detonators.
  • Programming speed is 7 times faster than existing systems.
  • Detonator energy monitoring right up to the point of blasting.
  • Blaster wirelessly controlled through the multi-purpose CE4 Tagger.
  • On-bench fault detection simplified with the GPS location of the detonator hole position in the CE4 Tagger.
