The Drager Flame 1300 is an IR flame detector that detects organic-based fires such as hydrocarbon fuels and vapours. The detector provides flexibility with its numerous output modes, and advanced design features ensure reliability in the detection of fires whilst at the same time providing excellent immunity to potential false alarm sources.

Simple installation

Installation is simple! The detector is easily installed with a stainless steel mounting bracket, which can be rotated to ensure optimum positioning of the detector to the potential fire source. Angular markings allow the positioning angles of the detector to be recorded for future reference.

Detector flexibility

As well as a 4 to 20 mA output and three relays, an optional RS 485 output is also available, which can be multi-dropped to a central location. This provides several options for detector monitoring and the triggering of the necessary control action upon detecting a fire.

Automatic and manual optics checks

Automatic checks of the detector electronics and optics ensure no fault goes undetected. Additionally, the test can be triggered manually at any time.

Isolated 4 to 20 mA as standard

Complete flexibility enables the detector to be operated from a separate power supply (as a four-wire device) or as a three-wire device where there is no requirement for an isolated output.

Easily visible status LED

A tri-coloured LED, visible at the front of the detector, provides a simple status indication to personnel close to the detector. Green indicates normal operation, yellow indicates a fault, and red indicates the presence of radiation.

Worldwide Approvals

The Drager Flame 1300 can be used worldwide with the following approvals: ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA.
