The flame detector monitors for radiation emitted by a flame in both the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectral ranges.

The unit is FM performance approved for seven different fuel sources. Other global approvals include CSA, ATEX, IECEx, EN 54-10 and CE Marking. The detector offers a field of view up to 130°.

It features three external LED indicators for local verification by technicians of normal operation, fault conditions, and alarms.

On-board relays provide flexible detector status communications with automated plant safety and control systems via HART, Modbus, 4-20 mA sink or source communications.
