The Intelligent IR3 Flame Detector is designed to protect areas where open flaming res may be expected.

The Intelligent IR3 Flame Detector is sensitive to low-frequency, flickering infra-red (IR) radiation emitted by flames during combustion. Since it responds to flickering radiation the IR3 Flame Detector can operate even if the lens is contaminated by a layer of oil, dust, water-vapour or ice.

The Intelligent IR3 Flame Detector is set to respond to low- frequency radiation at 1 to 15 Hz (1 to 2.7 �m) in order to detect all flickering flames including those invisible to the naked eye, e.g. those emitted by hydrogen res.

The Intelligent IR3 Flame Detector has three IR sensors that respond to different IR wavelengths in order to discriminate between ames and spurious sources of radiation. False alarms due to such factors as flickering lighting are avoided by a combination of filters and signal processing techniques.

Protocol Compatibility

The Intelligent IR3 Flame Detector operates only with control equipment using Apollo XP95 or Discovery protocols and is CoreProtocol® compatible.

Electrical Considerations

The Intelligent IR3 Flame Detector is loop powered and needs no external supply. A remote LED alarm indicator may be connected to the flame detector.
