Flame Detection
Talentum 16581
®
IR² Flame Detector
The Talentum® dual Infra-Red (IR²) Flame Detector is designed to
protect areas where open fires may be expected and detects almost
all flames, including hydrocarbon fires with 4.3μm emissions through
to invisible fires such as hydrogen.
The IR² Flame Detector is sensitive to flickering, low frequency (115Hz) infra-red radiation emitted by flames during combustion even if
the lens is contaminated by a layer of oil, dust, water, vapour or ice.
This detector has two IR sensors which respond to different IR
wavelengths in order to discriminate between flames and spurious
sources of radiation. False alarms from flickering sunlight are avoided
by a combination of filters and signal processing techniques.
®
The Talentum IR² detector has selectable output options of relay
contacts or 4-20mA signal, as standard.
