General Overview

IPES-IR/UV Flame Detector is based on Ultraviolet and Infrared sensing technology. Providing, with a rapid response time of less than 5 seconds. IPES IR/UV has an explosion proof certified enclosure. IPES IR/UV is certified by international accreditation agencies for SIL-3 rating.

IPES IR/UV advanced detection technology includes optical filters configured for maximum sensitivity to radiation produced by flame or fire and ensures rapid flame recognition and alarm signaling. Upon fire recognition within its field of view, the IPES IR/UV signals a change in state from normal operation to fire signal.

For ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the device is configured for sensitivity in the range of 180 to 260 nanometers, making the sensor «blind» to sunlight and radiation from heated objects but still able to «see» the UV radiation emitted by a flame. With these settings, the IPES IR/UV detects and alarms for only those characteristic wavelengths emissions from the UV and IR spectrum that indicate actual flame or fire.

In the infrared spectrum, the device is configured for sensitivity to wavelengths in the range of 3- 5 microns, allowing optimal sensitivity to combustible gas fires while rejecting false signals from incandescent lamps, sunlight and hot objects.

The unit comes standard with multiple outputs and you can choose to connect the detector via 4-20mA, RS485, HART or it can relay to your system for reliable communication.

For those applications where condensation may occur, an internal heater will activate to prevent any damage.
