Datasheet: Single Ultra-Violet Flame Detector

Source: Emerson Process Management, Rosemount Analytical

Net Safety's Single UV flame detector reacts to the ultraviolet radiation found in hydrocarbon fires, delivering accurate and reliable fire monitoring. The Single UV does not react when exposed to incandescent or fluorescent lighting, heaters or sunlight - meaning false alarms are virtually eliminated.

Enclosed in a rugged, explosion-proof housing, the Single UV uses the latest in microprocessor and UV sensor technology. It is capable of stand-alone operation or can be connected to a variety of control devices to create a dependable flame monitoring system. The user can define sensitivity and time delay settings to virtually eliminate false alarms and the built-in testing routines ensure continuous operation.

The Single UV has a Field of View of up to 120 degrees and is available with analog, analog/relay, analog/HART, or analog/relay/HART output configurations for 12 or 24 VDC systems - just let us know your requirements!

Net Safety's Single UV flame detector is globally certified Class I, Division 1 for hazardous locations to CSA, ATEX, Factory Mutual (FM), ANSI-UL/ISA, INMETRO, and GOST-R performance, technical and safety standards.
