Simtronics introduces new flame detectors

Supplier: ProDetec
10 July, 2013

ProDetec, a leading Fire & Gas Detection company, is pleased to announce the availability of the new Simtronics MultiFlame DF-TV7 Series Flame Detectors that provide fast and accurate detection of hydrocarbon fires while ensuring reliable false alarm immunity.

The new Simtronics Flame Detectors are available in Multispectral IR (IR3) and UV/2IR versions; both are housed in a rugged 316 stainless steel enclosure, approved to ATEX, CE, and IECEx global standards, and certified and suitable for use in SIL2 applications.

The Simtronics DF-TV7-V Flame Detector is based on a multi-infrared spectrum (IR3) technology that provides the longest distance-to-detection on the market (80m for n-Heptane), is highly sensitive to fire and is ideal for use in dirty environments and for smoky fires.

The Simtronics DF-TV7-V Flame Detector uses combined ultraviolet/infrared (UV-2IR) optical technology that provides industry-leading immunity to false alarms based on the two IR channel design. Both solutions lead to a very efficient false alarm rejection while keeping optimum sensitivity to fire.

The Simtronics MultiFlame Detectors can be configured to communicate with a wide range of fire panels, controllers, and PLCs and offer HART 7 and Syntel (Lonworks) protocols  for addressable event monitoring. The devices come standard with a configurable 4-20mA or 0-22mA (PLC) output, two configurable alarm relays, and two detector status LEDs.

All Simtronics MultiFlame Detectors are equipped with a continuous optical lens auto-check to ensure that the optical path is clear and that the detector functions properly. Sensors can be replaced easily in the field without removing any cable glands. Devices are easy to test and configure using a TLU wireless handheld unit that is approved for use in hazardous areas. The IECEx Hazardous Area Approved TLU can also be used for wireless testing of the optical and output circuits.

ProDetec with its association with Industrial Safety Technologies (IST) is dedicated to providing innovative industrial safety solutions. Together, with Simtronics and Detcon, they can supply the most comprehensive portable, wireless, and fixed flame and gas detection safety solutions.
