Eaton Zapper System

Eaton’s Tedeco® product line offers the Zapper Electric Chip Detector that incorporates a capacitor circuit that discharges a low energy pulse through the conductive debris bridge, causing enough local heating in the gap to open or disturb the debris material in a manner similar to the blowing of a fuse. If the discharge current reopens the circuit, the "burn-off" event is recorded and the chip detector system is returned to the monitoring mode. If the debris is too large to burn off, it is considered significant and the cockpit light remains illuminated. In this case, the pilot will follow normal precautionary procedures.
