Skylighter has many options for the electrical firing of fireworks. From a wired capacitive discharge unit, electric match blanks, heads, dip kits and electric match testers. The documents below will show you how to use our various electrical fireworks ignition systems and make electric matches with Skylighter products.
No matter if your show is big or small setting up an electrically fired display requires a little know-how and some basic components. Reading though this page will help get you up to speed on the know-how. The basic components of an electrically fired display are: Electric matches (made with Skylighter dip-kit and Skylighter electric match blanks), Shooting wire, and an electrical fireworks ignition system. The process is pretty simple: secure fireworks in their intended location. Attach electric matches to the fuses supplied with the fireworks. Attach a length of shooting wire to the electric match to extend it back to where the electrical fireworks ignition system is. Connect the shooting wire to the appropriate cue. The proceeding steps are repeated until all fireworks have been connected to the electrical fireworks ignition system.
In the graphic below we are using two electrical fireworks ignition systems so we have more cues and can spread the fireworks over a greater distance.
Electrical fireworks ignition systems are a great way to shoot a firework show. No more running around lighting fuses, you can sit back, push buttons and watch the show. Skylighter carries a wired capacitive discharge ignition system.
Wired Electrical Fireworks Ignition System Skylighter's wired electrical fireworks ignition system has a capacitive discharge 10-cue firing box. Extra slats and wires can be bought to extend the system allowing you to shoot more electric matches from each cue.
Slat, Electrical Firing, 10 Position, Standard Slats are used to connect electric matches to the power source of an electrical fireworks ignition system. Each slat can accommodate up to 10 firing cues. Any cue can in turn, consist of from 1-50 electric matches if you use our CD firing systems and fresh batteries.
Electric Match Blanks, 1 Foot Wires Attached Our electric match blanks are a perfect match for the Skylighter electric match dip kit. No soldering, crimping or twisting. No more inconsistent electric matches. A very simple method for making inexpensive electric matches at home.
Using the Skylighter electric match dip kit is highly recommended but if you're a real do-it yourselfer you may want to first read though some of our electric match making projects.
