What is the difference between
pytotechnic e-match used by professionals and our new
Falcon II Fireworks Igniters designed for
Original pyrotechnic e-match used by professionals contains a special
pyrotechnic compound on the head of the match that burns fiercely when
an electrical current is passed through it. Unfortunately, this
pyrotechnic compound is highly sensitive to shock, friction, and radio
waves, and therefore requires a federal BATF license to purchase, handle
Falcon II Fireworks Igniters use a unique design
incorporating a "clamp-on" connector that easily attaches to most consumer fireworks fuse.
Within the clamp is a very thin
nichrome wire that directly contacts the firework fuse.
When an electical current is passed through this wire (recommended
voltage between 6V - 12V, at .5A - 2A) it glows white hot, igniting the fuse to which it is attached. There is no
flame produced by
Falcon II Igniters, only a white-hot glowing wire element.
Falcon II Igniters have been designed specifically to work best
with 1/8" visco fuse found on most consumer fireworks, but will light
virtually any other type of fuse to which they are attached (quickmatch,
sticky match, black match, etc.) And best of all, Falcon
II Fireworks Igniters require no
special permits or licensing to purchase or use.
