Flame Detection

Features and benefits

Multi-Spectrum IR (MSIR) sensor array provides increased range and a wide field of view
Neural Network Technology (NNT) combination is highly immune to false alarms caused by lightning, arc-welding, hot objects, and other sources of radiation.
Continuous Optical Path Monitoring (COPM) checks the optical path integrity and the detector’s electronic circuitry
Designed to detect typical fires such as those produced by alcohol, n-heptane, gasoline, jet fuels and hydrocarbons, the FlameGard 5 MSIR Detector can see through dense smoke produced by diesel, rubber, plastics, lube oil, and crude oil fires.
The FlameGard 5 MSIR Detector is housed in a stainless steel explosion-proof enclosure to provide operational integrity in the harshest environments.
Multiple communication outputs provide versatility for use in a variety of applications
The serial communication port(s) allows 128 units (247 using repeaters) to be linked up to a host computer using the Modbus RTU protocol.
