The key technology to disable even the most aggressive subjects, NMI temporarily overrides the command and control systems of the body to impair muscular control.
A sophisticated pulse wave that utilizes a high voltage leading edge to penetrate barriers such as clothing around the body followed by a lower voltage stimulation pulse to cause Neuro Muscular Incapacitation.
The Rotational-Pulse Drive in the TASER® X3™ HD delivers patented Shaped Pulse™ discharges sequentially to multiple electrode sets, rotating the pulses across multiple cartridge bays at a rate of up to 45 times per second. This alternation of pulsed output across multiple cartridges allows a single X3 HD to incapacitate up to three subjects simultaneously with the same effectiveness as three separate TASER® X26c™ CEWs. The Rotational-Pulse Drive also supports cross-connection, or the X-Connect™ capability, so that a combination of top and bottom probes from any of the active firing bays can form an effective NMI circuit, improving effectiveness and the likelihood of incapacitation.
The Pulse Calibration System constantly optimizes the output of the Rotational-Pulse Drive to deliver the precise amount of electric charge needed to cause optimal incapacitation while enhancing safety. This continuous monitoring and adjustment of electrical output yields a Precision Shaped Pulse that provides more consistent effects on the target and a margin of safety up to 40% greater than previous CEW technology. In addition to recording calibration data, the system can provide the operator a real-time visual icon on the color display to indicate whether the system is maintaining electrical connection to the target with easy to identify visual green / yellow / red icons.
A low voltage system that initiates cartridge launch independent of the NMI discharge. The Independent Fire Control System enables the controlled deployment of multiple cartridges. It also enables the user to display a spectacular array of electric arcs to deter or warn subjects – all while the X3 HD remains fully loaded with live cartridges.
Standard Range Laser: The Standard Range Laser has a 7-degree separation between the bottom laser and the top laser. This bottom laser is automatically selected for cartridges with 25 feet or 15 feet range.
Long Range Laser: The Long Range Laser system has a 3-degree downward trajectory. This bottom laser is automatically selected for 35 foot cartridges.
The new Smart™ Cartridge communicates with the Fire Control System within the X3 HD, indicating the type of cartridge loaded in each bay and its deployment status. The Smart Cartridge contains the nitrogen propulsion system, probes, TASER wire, and Anti-Felon Identification (AFID) tags sealed behind a rugged, weatherproof blast door. The new static resistant propulsion system allows the X3 HD to display NMI arcs without firing the cartridge – which also reduces the risk of accidental static discharge misfires.
The X3 HD has a full color screen CID and internationally recognizable color icons and multilingual menu support to show the types of cartridges loaded, whether they have been deployed, battery status, burst count down, total burst time, and more.
