The Conventional Base Mounted UV Flame Detector is designed to protect enclosed indoor areas where open flaming 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.
The Flame Detectors can also be ceiling mounted, positioned above the anticipated flame source or at the centre of the area to be protected, perpendicular to the floor below. If the detector cannot see the whole of the area to be protected, one or more additional detectors may be required.
The area of detection is dependent on the detectors height above the likely source of flame. The detector has a 90° conical field of view or 45° either side of the viewing axis centre line. The maximum ceiling height is 20m. If the detector is perpendicular to floor and at a height of 10m then the detector will view a circular floor area below with a 10m radius (20m diameter circle).
- Responds to stationary flames with no flicker
- Sensitive to UV radiation emitted by flames during combustion
- Compact flame detector which fits into Series 65 bases
- Zone-powered To be used with either Series 65 or Orbis Systems
