Pyrotechnic Cord, Wire and Tube Cutters
Cord cutters are designed to cut lanyards, cables, and cords. A popular version of this device simultaneously severs a Kevlar® Cable (rated at 750 lbs.) and two 24 AWG wires within 10 milliseconds of initiation.
Wire cutters are designed to cut both solid and multiple stranded wire within 20 milliseconds of initiation. One variant of this device severs a solid 0.033” diameter stainless steel spring wire in less than 20 milliseconds.
Tube cutters are designed to open pressure diaphragms or to completely sever metal tubes of varying diameters and wall thicknesses, including those carrying pressurized fluids. The cutters are available with RFI protection in accordance with MIL-M-23700.
