FL500 UV-IR Flame Detector

MSA Safety

UV Infrared Detector with false alarm immunity. The FL500 UV-IR Flame Detector monitors for radiation emitted by a flame in both the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectral ranges. This UV/IR combination provides a fast response time and increased false alarm immunity against sources of radiation for reliable protection.

  • Proven Technology. UV/IR flame detection uses an ultraviolet and an infrared detector to monitor for flames increasing false alarm immunity by measuring two different flame spectrums.
  • FM Performance Approved. Six fuel sources (heptane, methane, methanol, propane, ethane, butane) tested with verified field of view.
  • Wide Field of View. 130° cone of vision covers greater distance.
  • Safety Integrity Self-Check. Continuous Optical Path Monitoring (COPM) performs self-check every two minutes to ensure the optical path is clear and the electronic circuitry is functional.
  • Test Anytime, Anywhere. Easily test with our exclusive TL105 Test Lamp that allows the FL500 UV/IR Flame
  • Detector to be safely tested under real fire conditions with a simulated flicker of a flame.
  • Withstands Extremes. Wide operating temperature range (-55°C to +85°C) permits operation in extreme environments.
  • Status at a Glance. Three LED status indicators for warning, alarm, and normal operations.
  • Rugged Housing. 316 stainless steel housing to withstand the harshest environments
  • Multiple Output Options. Industry standard 4-20 mA (source or sink analog), Modbus, HART, relays
