electrical initiation meaning
1. Starting an action (electrical or nonelectrical) by means of an electrical signal.
2. Using an enabling pulse.
- Technical standards were developed to identify the features of electrical apparatus that would prevent electrical initiation of explosions due to energy or thermal effects.
- For electrical initiation, a momentary contact at 10A / 5V is sufficient; for ohmic contact, 120-150 amperes is needed for a 15 micrometer diameter contact, and 250-300 A for a 300 micrometer contact.
