Intelligent Flameproof IR² Flame Detector

Product code: 55000-295APO

55000-295APO - Intelligent Flameproof IR² Flame Detector
The Intelligent Flameproof IR2 Flame Detector is designed for hazardous environments in indoor applications. The detector has two sensors which respond to different IR wavelengths to distinguish between flames and spurious sources of radiation. These detectors are BASEEFA approved and meet the requirements of ATEX Directive 94/9/EC.

Electrical Description

The Intelligent Flameproof IR2 Flame Detector is loop powered and needs no external supply. A remote LED alarm indicator may be connected to the flame detector.

Operation

The IR2 Flame Detector is sensitive to low-frequency, flickering infra-red radiation emitted by flames during combustion. Since it responds to flickering radiation the IR2 Flame Detector can operate even if the lens is contaminated by a layer of oil, dust, water-vapour or ice. The IR2Flame Detector is set to respond to low-frequency radiation at 1 to 15Hz (1 to 2.7μm) in order to detect all flickering flames, including those invisible to the naked eye, eg, those emitted by hydrogen fires. The IR2Flame Detector has two IR sensors that respond to different IR wavelengths in order to discriminate between flames and spurious sources of radiation. False alarms due to such factors as flickering lighting are avoided by a combination of filters and signal processing techniques

Backward Compatibility

The Intelligent Flameproof IR2 Flame Detector operates only with control equipment using the Apollo XP95 or Discovery digital protocol (or any development of it).
