The combined ultraviolet / infrared (UV/IR) optical flame detector employs a UV sensor, immune to solar radiation, coupled with a narrow-band IR sensor to provide excellent detection sensitivity together with enhanced false alarm immunity.
The detector has a very fast time response to the saturated signal. It is designed to detect fires involving hydrocarbon-based fuels, hydrogen, hydroxy derivative fuels, metal fires and inorganic materials.
The main applications depending on the type of detector / sensor are:
- Oil fires
- Hydrogen, ammonia, silane and other hydrogen-based fuel fires
- Metal fires
The advantages are:
- Suitable for indoor and outdoor use (depending on models and accessories).
- Moderate speed.
- Moderate sensitivity.
- Low rate of false alarms
- Unaffected by solar radiation
