IPES-IR3 Flame Detector is based on triple spectrum infrared sensing technology. Providing, with a rapid response time of less than 5 seconds. IPES IR3 has an explosion proof certified enclosure. IPES IR3 is certified by international accreditation agencies for SIL-3 rating.




IPES IR3’s, advanced detection technology ensures rapid flame recognition and alarm signaling. In addition, IPES IR3’s selective, multi spectral technology virtually eliminates false alarms. It ignores false triggers from sources such as direct or indirect sunlight, arc welder flash, resistive heaters, fluorescent, halogen, and incandescent light. IPES IR3 sends an alarm only when data from three different IR wavelengths agree that a flame or fire is present in the field of view. Upon confirmation of flame or fire, the IPES IR3 transfers alarm signals to receiving control devices located in control and operations rooms and to fire alarms and burglar/fire alarm systems. While operating, the IPES IR3 transmits detector status information via.
