The Dräger Flame 2300 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.
The detector is available in either Aluminium or Stainless Steel housings. There are also various cable entry options available. The detector is easily installed with a stainless steel mounting bracket, which is included with the supply; this can be rotated to ensure optimum positioning of the detector in relation to the potential fire source. Angular markings allow the positioning angles of the detector to be recorded for future reference.
As well as a 4 to 20 mA signal output and 3 relay outputs, an optional RS 485 output is also available, which can be multi-dropped to a central location. This provides a number of options for detector monitoring and the triggering of the necessary control action upon the detection of a fire.
Complete flexibility enables the detector to be operated from a separate power supply (as a 4 wire device) or as a 3 wire device where there is no requirement for an isolated signal output.
Automatic checks of the detector electronics and optics ensure no fault goes undetected. Additionally, the test can be triggered manually at anytime. The Dräger Flame 2300 provides the highest level of false alarm immunity. This is because the detector requires both IR and UV sensors to alarm before the detector will itself output an alarm condition and such action ensures that false alarms are all but non-existent.
The Dräger Flame 2300 comes with a factory issued IECEx approval, which should lead to a smooth installation process in hazardous classified areas.
