Visual Flame Detector
Nov 16 2012
Whereas traditional flame detectors operate using IR/UV technology, the Flame 5000 uses video technology. Equipped with a built-in camera, the detector "observes" its surroundings and the special algorithms will analyse the corresponding area – giving alarm if characteristic flame movements and contours are detected.
This technology eliminates various traditional disturbances, such as lightning, light reflections or thermal radiation. In addition, the detector automatically performs an optical verification to guard against dirty optics. All Flame 5000 statuses are displayed directly on the device and simultaneously the device sends a signal to the fire or gas detection system via a relay circuit or 4-20mA (0-21mA) output.
Capable of detecting a fire covering an area of one square foot (ft2) and power output of approximately 10KW at a distance of up to 44 meters, the Dräger Flame 5000 can monitor an area much greater than traditional IR/UV sensors. Available both in a Stainless Steel or an Aluminium housing, the device is approved for use in areas where an explosive risk is present. The Dräger Flame 5000 can be used either as an individual device or integrated into a control system or fire detection system.
