Cobra - E-match plug in connectors


#1

We were discussing this on the Cobra FB page. Cobra is soon to release face plates for plugging in e-matches with plug ends versus twisting wires.

Scott Smith commented that these will come shunted. Should be similar to these: https://electricmatch.com/.../see/12/5/quick-connect-harness
Although these on the MJG website are more dense, to be used with other firing systems.
The idea is the same, for a small upcharge you can get e-matches with plug ends instead of wire ends.

Let’s discuss this at the PAT Event a few days from now.
See you soon!

How well did the butt connectors work?

They worked, but they’re kind of fussy unless you’re doing a ton of serial wiring and/or have a controlled space to layout the plugs and pliers. Instead you can order cases of 2-3 Halo serial connectors from MJG if you know that’s what you want to use. https://electricmatch.com/pyrotechnics/see/11/5/halo-igniters

Now Hellrazor had some Cobra 18M’s with beta Cobra Male Plug In Ematch Ports at PAT, and some MJG e-matches with the female e-match ends. They looked cool, he can comment, but you could retrofit Cobra mod.'s to reduce twisting wire.
