Use:

Fuze M606 is a mechanical pressure-type and is used to initiate M19 nonmetallic antitank mine.



Description:
Fuze M606 is a flat, round disk, constructed of plastic material to avoid discovery by magnetic mine detectors. The fuze body contains a pressure plate, two belleville springs, a setting knob, a step plate, a firing pin assembly, and a detonator holder assembly.

Functioning:
After the safety clip has been removed and the setting knob turned to the armed position, a force of 300 to 500 pounds on the pressure plate will depress the upper belleville spring, and cause the lower spring to snap into reverse, driving the firing pin into the detonator.
