Full Details
Electrical Description

The Intelligent IR³ Flame Detector is loop powered and needs no external supply. A remote LED alarm indicator may be connected to the flame detector.

Operation

The Intelligent IR³ Flame Detector is sensitive to low-frequency, flickering infra-red radiation emitted by flames during combustion. Since it responds to flickering radiation the IR³ Flame Detector can operate even if the lens is contaminated by a layer of oil, dust, water-vapour or ice. The Intelligent IR³ Flame 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 Intelligent IR³ Flame Detector has three 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 sunlight are avoided by a combination of filters and signal processing techniques. This detector has a heavy duty, stainless steel housing, which is highly resistant to corrision. The housing has been electro-polished to give a natural silver finish and has no need to be painted, making it ideal for marine applications.

Backward Compatibility

The Intelligent IR³ Flame Detector operates only with control equipment using the Apollo XP95 or Discovery digital protocol (or any development of it).
