The XP95 Intelligent XP95 Intelligent Flameproof Dual IR Detector is designed for use in areas where flaming fires may be expected.
The detector has two sensors which respond to different IR wavelengths to discriminate between flames and spurious sources of radiation.
Applications include aircraft hangars, coal handling and paper manufacturing plants and woodworking environments.
- Sensitive to flickering IR radiation
- Detects through films of oil, dust, water and ice
- Responds to flickering flames, including those invisible to the naked eye
- Compatible with Discovery and XP95 protocols
- Remote optical self-test function
- 90° field of view
- Up to 40m coverage
The XP95 Dual IR Flame Detector is sensitive to low-frequency (1 to 15Hz, 1 to 2.7μm), flickering infra-red radiation emitted by flames during combustion. Since it responds to flickering radiation, the XP95 Dual IR Flame Detector can operate even if the lens is contaminated by a layer of oil, dust, water-vapour or ice. False alarms due to such factors as flickering sunlight are avoided by a combination of filters and signal processing techniques. The response of the XP95 Flame Detector depends on the size of the flame and the position of the detector. It is essential that the detector is situated correctly as the further away the flame is from the flame detector, the larger the fire has to be to be reliably detected.
The IR Flame Detector is insensitive to artificial light and electric arcs (eg, lightning from electric storms) making it suitable for use outdoors. However, it is advisable that exposure to severe rain or ice and direct sunlight be avoided.
