Marine Intelligent Base Mounted UV Flame Detector

Product code: 55000-027MAR

55000-027MAR - Marine Intelligent Base Mounted UV Flame Detector
The Marine Intelligent Base Mounted UV Flame Detector is designed to protect enclosed indoor areas where open fires may be expected. The detector has a fast acting response to flames up to 25m away and is equipped with a single UV sensor with a narrow spectral response in order to discriminate between flames and most spurious sources of radiation.
Full Details
Electrical Description

The detectors are loop powered and need no external supply. A remote LED alarm indication may be connected to the flame detector.

Operation

The detector is sensitive to ultraviolet radiation emitted by flames during combustion. Since it requires only UV radiation the detector responds even to stationary flames with no flicker like cigarette lighters and blue gas flames. The detector is set to respond to ultraviolet radiation (185−260nm) emitted by almost all flames, including those invisible to the naked eye, e.g. hydrogen fires. The detector has a single UV sensor with a narrow spectral response in order to discriminate between flames and most spurious sources of radiation and is designed for internal fully enclosed areas. Caution: The detector will also detect electrical discharges from lightning or arc welding.

Application

UV flame detectors are used when detection is required to be unaffected by convection currents, draughts or wind. These include engine rooms in ships, factories affected by draughts or wind and warehouses. They are fast reacting and respond to a flame more than 25m away. The UV flame detector is affected by arc welding, electrical sparks, lightning, nuclear radiation and UV light sources. For applications where these phenomena are present a UV flame detector should not be used.
