MSA Safety’s General Monitors FL500 UV/IR Flame Detector is said to provide relentless protection to safeguard people, equipment and facilities. The FL500 optical flame detector is FM performance approved for six different fuel sources: butane, ethane, heptane, methane, methanol and propane. By combining a precision ultraviolet (UV) sensor for quick response with an infrared (IR) sensor that monitors flame-emitted radiation, it operates at faster speeds with unsurpassed false alarm immunity to provide the industry’s most reliable monitoring in its class.
Other features include a field of view up to 130°, three external LED indicators for local verification, on-board relays that provide detector status communications with automated plant safety and control systems via HART, Modbus, 4-20 mA sink or source communications, and continuous optical path monitoring (COPM). The FL500 flame detector conducts its own self-check every two minutes.
Operating temperature range is -67°F (-55°C) to 185°F (85°C) with a relative humidity range of 0 to 95% RH, non-condensing. In addition to FM performance approval, other global approvals include: CSA, ATEX, IECEx, EN 54-10 and CE Marking.
