    Hi!
    Who can help with images disassembled El.Zt.Z.59(A)? May be his cut-scheme? He contains only percussion cap, or powder petard?

    The 59 (A) does not contain any percussion cap and also no powder petard, but only 2 electric igniters (for 2 different delays) and a pyrotechnic powder delay train. It's one of the most simple electric fuses.

    Thank you, but how flash from this fuze(powder trains) ignite main ejection charge (at parachute flare, for example)?
    Bottom cover 59(A) don`t have flash holes — only 4 recess for special disassembling key.

    Hallo Fusse2004,
    thank you for your answer,that also helped my understanding. Do you have any information on the composition of : " 12 In- and Output-Ignition" and its weight in miiligrams. In the beginning of the war, for this type of ignition and also in many other pyrotechnic ignition devices, black powder was used traditionally. Because of the moisture problems using black powder an alternative was looked for. The alternative found was Tetranitrocarbazol, which is non hygroscopic, but has very similar properties as black powder.
    The El.AZ 55 has as an (Abfeuerung) Outputignition a narrow, thin pressed ring like a black washer in the bottom bakelite moulding, which I assume to be Tetranitrocarbazol. Do you have any detailed info ?
    Regards,
    Bellifortis.
