The flame detectors are used for extremely rapid detection in Protective, Quick Suppression Systems. The UVIR detectors are optically based, self-contained, microprocessor-controlled, ultraviolet/infrared (UV/IR) and high-speed ultraviolet (UV) flame detectors designed for the Firefly Eximio system. The patented TrueDetect™ technology minimizes false alarms. The flame detector can be used in open or closed areas, it registers the UV and IR light emitted from material burning. The detectors use FEA (Fire Event Analysis) recognition technology to distinguish between radiation from hazardous flames even with a lit room. They can be used in applications with sudden fires from hydrocarbon fuels or when proper options are selected, from specified non-hydrocarbon fuels, may occur.
These detectors can be paired with various mitigation options (including water mist nozzles, abort gates, CO2 gas system, slide gates, etc.). The IR flame detector is equipped with an automatic self-test feature that verifies the proper function of the electronics, sensors, and optical surfaces. The detectors are approved for both indoor and outdoor installations. Previous CUE systems had the OAD detector which is now referred to as the UVIR detector; both are fully functional with the new Eximio system. The response of detection is less than 1 second.
