Inertia Devices

Inertia devices are initiating or firing devices for IEDs that employ a temporarily fixed conductive metal object—a moveable bridging contact that can slide forward to close a circuit, for example, upon braking of a vehicle --or impact with a solid object.

Securesearch manufactures several types of inertia switches, including some in metal housings and others in clear plastic housings. We also sell commercially-made inertia switches.

We incorporate them into several inert but functional IED training models. The switches can be purchased separately, or as initiating systems built into our complete IED training aids.

TUBE AND BALL SWITCH INITIATED IED DEMONSTRATOR
Order Sku: ITA-47A
Tube and ball switch initiated IED demonstrator. This model demonstrates the operation of an IED which has been booby-trapped with a tube and ball switch. The device will initiate when tilted sufficiently to cause the ball bearing in the plastic tube to roll against the contacts, bridging them.

Double-ball-in-tube initiated IED parcel
Order Sku: ITA-73
Double-ball-in-tube initiated IED parcel. This device is similar to ITA-72 and to ITA-47A in operation, but uses an improvised tube tilt switch containing two ballbearings. This makes it much more unpredictable, sensitive, and dangerous in operation. It creates redundant switching, tending to make a boobytrap device fail safe if the components are carefully assembled.
IEDs with multiple ball switches are very dangerous to move, and this training aid illustrates why.
