The C-643 is a self-adhesive, shaped, timed explosive device, designed to blow light barriers (such as hatches) or used against adversaries.
Its timer can be set for a 5 to 60" delay. A back-up timer has a fixed 10" delay.
A range of 5m to the rear of the explosion is safe for personnel. A distance of more 25m is recommended because of ancillary damage and debris.
The back-up timer can be used with a trip-wire trigger; once it's set, the timer is activated, and at the end of the 10" time, the device waits for any further disturbance to the trigger to explode.
