- SIL 3 Certified
The multi-spectral infrared technology of ESP Safety’s IPES-IR3 Flame Detector provides the highest sensitivity in detecting flames within a wide field of view. IPES-IR3’s advanced detection algorithm ensures rapid flame recognition while virtually eliminating false alarms.
Alarms are sent only when ratios between three different IR wavelengths confirm that a flame is present in the field of view. IPES IR3 ignores false triggers from sources such as direct or indirect sunlight, arc welder flash, resistive heaters, fluorescent, halogen, and incandescent lights.
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 IR3 assures low power costs.
The maximum area coverage along with SIL 3 rating makes IPES IR3 the best fit where reliability and performance are required. IPES IR3 has extended temperature range version -60 degrees Celsius to + 125 degrees Celsius for the most demanding industry applications.
The detector comes in both stainless steel and aluminum housing.
