IPES-UV Only Flame Detector provides superior sensitivity for hydrogen and metal fires. Upon fire recognition within its 90-degree field of view, the IPES-UV Only signals a change in state from normal operation to fire for any alarm and response system. For ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the device is configured for sensitivity in the range of 180 to 250 nanometers, making the sensor “blind” to sunlight and radiation from heated objects but still able to “see” the UV radiation emitted by a flame.
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-UV Only Flame Detector assures low power costs.
The detector comes in both stainless steel and aluminum housing.
