MSA FlameGard 5 UV/IR-E Flame Detector

Ultraviolet and infrared flame detection provides high immunity to false alarms

The FlameGard 5 UV/IR-E Flame Detector is designed to detect unwanted fires and provide alarm outputs directly from the detector while maintaining false alarm immunity. It detects fires by monitoring in both the ultraviolet and infrared (UV & IR) spectral ranges making it highly immune to false alarms caused by lightning, arc welding, hot objects and other sources of radiation.

The detector's electronics are integral within an explosionproof housing, allowing detector information to be processed at the point of detection. The electronics are fully separated from the EExe wire compartment, offering pro - tection during installation and service. The model is available in a number of output configurations:

  4-20 mA stepped output + single serial communications port
  Dual serial communications ports
  Warning, alarm and fault relays
  Alarm and fault relays with on-board EOL and alarm resistor
  4-20 mA stepped output only

The serial communication port(s) allows 128 units (247 using repeaters) to be linked up to a host computer using the Modbus RTU protocol. The communication registers provide alarm status, fault and other information for operation, trouble shooting or programming the unit.

The COPM (Continuous Optical Path Monitor - ing) self test feature checks the optical path integrity (window cleanliness) and the de - tector's electronic circuitry once every minute.
