The highway addressable remote transducer (HART) protocol is the global standard for sending and receiving digital information across a 4-20mA analogue signal between smart devices and a control and monitoring system. It is a field-proven, bi-directional communication protocol carried over the same wiring that is typically used for conventional analogue instruments, with no disruption to the integrity of the signal and no rewiring required.

Data is quickly and easily communicated between Net Safety’s intelligent flame detectors and practically any compatible host system. A host can be any software application, from a technician’s hand-held device or laptop to a plant’s process control, asset management or safety system platform.

Remote access to detector controls

In addition to the inherent instrument alarm function, the HART protocol permits remote access to the configuration, diagnostics, maintenance and alarm records of any networked Net Safety flame detector. Field operators can accurately assess device conditions and prepare for routines before travelling into the field.

One of the unique features of the Net Safety HART solution is an easily accessible separated input option. Most flame detectors installed in the field are mounted close to ceilings in order to effectively monitor hazardous areas. Our separated input option gives field operators a direct, ground-level input to Net Safety flame detectors using any remote HART host device, such as a hand-held communicator or laptop.

Developed for use in a wide range of industrial applications requiring accurate explosion-proof flame detection, the entire line of Net Safety detectors support oil and gas production, refining, distribution and storage operations as well as chemical processing, aircraft hangars, and electrostatic spray paint booths to name a few.

The Net Safety range of flame detectors

The Net Safety UV/IR flame detector monitors both the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectral ranges, providing high immunity to false alarms due to lightning, arc welding, hot body objects and other sources of radiation. The UV flame detector monitors only the ultraviolet spectral range for optimised speed of response.

Both the UV and UV/IR flame detectors are also available in specially tuned H2 flame detector versions which can detect invisible hydrogen and silane flame.

Net Safety’s Phoenix Triple Infrared flame detector delivers the ultimate safety, security and performance for any application. The Phoenix uses no external reflector for routine visual integrity checks. No other detector on the market can offer this advanced technology, which greatly reduces faults and maintenance, particularly in extreme applications where salt, heavy rain, sand or snow are a constant factor. It has the lowest power consumption of any competitive product and is engineered to perform even in the most extreme conditions.

With a full 90° certified field of view and extended detection ranges, field adjustable sensitivity and time delay, proprietary automatic digital zone (ADZ) technology and the highest immunity possible to hot body radiation, lightning, arc welding and sunlight, the Net Safety Phoenix Triple IR is setting the new standard for industrial grade multi-spectrum IR flame detection.
