Micropack launches FDS303 multi-spectrum infrared flame detectorMicropack FDS303 Multi Spectrum IR Flame Detector

A new multi-spectrum infrared flame detector quickly detects all hydrocarbon fires over a long range, including those not detectable in the visible spectrum.

The FDS303 has been developed by flame detection specialist Micropack for use in hazardous environments where fast fire detection is critical.

In fact, the FDS303 has been independently tested by Factory Mutual to detect a hydrocarbon fuel pan fire at 60m.
 
Director of sales Eliot Sizeland said: “The FDS303 provides excellent immunity to false alarms in hazardous areas. It is explosion-proof and responds to hydrocarbon liquid fuel and gas fires at long distances up to a range of 60 metres.”[http://bit.ly/FDS303]
 
The detector utilises a ‘no-mirror’ continuous optical check, which verifies operation, improves device up-time and needs less cleaning. That – and utilisation of the latest IR flame detection algorithms – ensures a minimum of false alarms and faults.
 
With microprocessor-controlled heated optics, it’s operating temperature is -60°C to +85°C (-76°F to +185°F), so operation is maintained in harsh weather conditions producing snow, ice, heat or condensation.
 
The FDS303 comes with global hazardous area approvals FM, ATEX and IECEx and worldwide marine approvals. It has certified performance testing to multiple fuels: FM 3260 and EN 54-10.
 
Adjustable sensitivity levels give application flexibility and ensure that multiple detectors do not cross-vote.
 
External testing takes place with a long-range flame simulator that minimises the need for scaffolding. And integration is easy using industry standard outputs; the FDS303 is certified SIL 2 capable.
