Flame Detectors operate in the harshest environmental conditions and are self-contained stand-alone devices designed for direct connection to control and alarm systems or automatic fire extinguishing systems.

40/40UFL Series Flame Detectors

An exciting range of flame detectors that incorporates the very latest features and approvals for today's industries! All 40/40 Series detectors offer enhanced reliability and durability with a massive 5-year warranty. All are fitted with a heated window to withstand the harshest of conditions and with HART output to offer quality information during installation or maintenance. Most have an enhanced detection distance and a larger field of view than before.

All are Hazardous Area approved (FM/ATEX/IECEx/CSA and more) for location in zone I areas and 3rd party Performance approved (EN54-10, FM, DNV).

The 40/40 range includes IR3, combined UV/IR, single UV types, single IR type as well as a new Multi IR Detector which provides combined hydrocarbon and hydrogen flame detection.

40/40UFL Ultra Fast UV/IR

The new SharpEye UV-IR High-Speed Optical Flame detector 40/40UFL is designed to meet two major requirements:

  • High-Speed Response (20 msec)
  • High Reliability (immunity to false alarm)

This detector is based on our well known military detector used in Armored Vehicle Explosion Suppression System combined with the industrial detector 40/40LB.

The 40/40UFL can detect hydrocarbon-based fuel and gas fires, hydroxyl and hydrogen fires, as well as metal and inorganic fires.

The UV/IR flame detector senses radiant energy in the short wave section of both the ultraviolet and infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The signals from both sensors are analyzed for frequency, intensity and duration. Simultaneous detection of radiant energy in both the UV and IR sensors triggers an alarm signal.

The UV sensor incorporates a special logic circuit that helps prevent false alarms caused by solar radiation.
