Analysis and Design of the Reliability of a Wire Setting System
Reliability as an important index occupies an important position in electronic time fuze design. Small and medium caliber ammunition could be set in wire form or wireless form. Wireless setting can be divided into several forms, electromagnetism induction setting, radio frequency setting, laser setting and so on. There are many existing disadvantages in this technique, such as weak EMI ability, complex structure and poor reliability, while wire setting has the advantages opposite them. A wire setting system for electronic time fuse was designed in this article. In allusion to the problems of low ammunition reliability in the experiment, a method that could detect the working condition of the fuze effectively is presented, and bring a great help for finding out the root of the poor reliability. The experimental results showed that the effective rate of the improved electronic time fuze reached 100% and timing accuracy reached +-3 ms. This study provides a reference for the design of the reliability of setting system.
