Mech Warfare Hardcore – Rocket Fuse

This is one of the fuses used to fire the rockets mounted on the robots competing in Mech Warfare Hardcore during RoboGames 2012.

Basically, it's small light bulb with a protective tape cover. The bulb glass is carefully broken without damaging the bulb filament.

When the robot controller board receives the rocket firing command it applies current to the bulb. The filament heats up igniting the rocket.

  1. Why wouldn’t you just use model rocket fuses?
