IPES-IR/UV Flame Detector provides superior sensitivity for fires caused by oil and petrochemical products. Using integrated ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) sensors within its 90-degree field of view, the IPES-IR/UV monitors specific regions of both spectral ranges and engages the alarm only when wavelength emissions in the UV and IR spectrums indicate an actual fire. The combination of multiple sensors eliminates false-positive indicators caused by non-flame sources of radiation such as artificial lighting, direct and indirect sunlight, lightning, arc welding, and metal grinding.
The built-in continuous self-check function will notify you if anything is obstructing the detector’s field of view or if there are circuit integrity problems. The unit comes standard with multiple outputs and you can choose to connect the detector via 4-20mA, RS485 or relays to your system for reliable communication.
For those applications where condensation may occur, an internal heater will activate to prevent any damage. And with power consumption less than 3W, ESP’s flame detector IPES-IR/UV assures low power costs.
The detector comes in both stainless steel and aluminum housing.
