The Ultraviolet/Infrared FL500 Flame Detector delivers high-speed flame detection with increased immunity to false alarms in a compact design.
The FL500 UV/IR Flame Detector is designed to detect radiation emitted by a flame in the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectral ranges. UV and IR technology combination ensures a fast response time and increased immunity against false alarms caused by other radiation sources, making it a reliable protection tool.
A UV/IR flame detector combines an ultraviolet (UV) sensor for quick response and an infrared (IR) sensor that monitors radiation emitted by a flame. This combination offers increased immunity, operates faster, and is suited for indoor and outdoor use.
Stainless steel housing, three LED status indicators, reduced footprint, and simplified wiring make the FL500 easy to install and maintain.
FM Performance Approved Detection
The FL500 UV/IR Flame Detector has seven performance fuel sources approved by Factory Mutual (FM)—heptane, hydrogen, methane, methanol, propane, propane, ethane, and butane.
Safety Integrity Self-Check
Every two minutes, a built-in self-check known as Continuous Optical Path Monitoring (COPM) performs an optical and electrical check to ensure the optical path is clear and the electronic circuitry is operational.
Reliable Testing Anytime, Anywhere
The FL500 can be tested with our exclusive TL105 Test Lamp, which simulates the flickering of a fire. This allows the detector to be tested under simulated fire conditions without the associated risk of an open flame.
