The AXXIS™ Underground Centralized Blasting System allows underground mining operations to initiate blasts from a safe and convenient place on surface. The system allows real-time local monitoring with remote access monitoring capabilities. The monitoring features built into the system ensures that an up-to-date AXXIS™ Centralized Blasting System status and overview is available. This feature greatly improves the pre-and post-blasting decision-making processes.

The AXXIS™ Underground CBS is compatible with AXXIS™ GII™ electronic detonator. Leverage off the AXXIS™ technology, the system is able to initiate electronic and non-electric detonators, maximising productivity.

The AXXIS™ Electronic Centralised Blastsing System is based on the reliable and proven blasting electronics used in the BME Underground Centralised Blasting System and consists of the following components: Centralised Blasting Box, Centralised Blasting Box, Portable Control Box and the AXXIS™ CBS Logger.

The AXXIS™ system was developed in-house at BME, one of the largest explosives companies in Africa and listed on the JSE through its holding company Omnia. BME provides the AXXIS™ technology and associated technical support to the international market either directly or through various distributors.
