This invention relates generally to safety arming devices for ordnance involving use of an explosive train interrupter to prevent inadvertent detonation of an explosive charge. Various timing mechanisms are presently known involving spring-driven clockwork units, fluid timers or electronic de1ay devices for establishing safe separation time through an explosive train interrupter, precluding premature propagation between primary and secondary explosives.
