UV Flame Detector

The SENSE-WARE UV Flame Detector utilizes a microprocessor for sophisticated electronic signal analysis. The ultraviolet flame detector is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. Because of its non-corrosive housing it is suitable for indoor industrial areas were corrosion may play a role. UV (Ultraviolet) energy is emitted by almost every fire; both hydrocarbon and non- hydrocarbon fires. The Ultraviolet Flame Detector will alarm to Arc Welding. To prevent unwanted alarms, for example, electric arcs and or uncovered halogen lamps, the delay time for an alarm is 8-10 seconds. This is sufficient for 90% of the applications. The UV Flame Detector is suitable for applications that include Hydrogen, Radio Amplifier and Antennas but also Heating Rooms for chemicals and Inside Fume hoods in laboratories. A self-test is performed every hour to make sure the sensor and electronics operate well. A Test Lamp is available for regular inspections and end-to-end testing.
