The SharpEye 40/40UFL UV-IR high-speed optical flame detector

The Spectrex SharpEye 40/40UFL flame detector has recently been awarded EN54-10 approval by VdS Germany following completion of the required testing at the institute’s laboratories.

The EN54-10 approval is highly respected and allows greater access to certain markets. It is required if the user seeks a fully VdS-approved system.

The SharpEye 40/40UFL UV-IR high-speed optical flame detector’s UV sensor incorporates a special logic circuit that helps prevent false alarms caused by solar radiation. The detector is designed to meet two major requirements:

  • High-speed response (20ms)
  • High reliability (immunity to false alarms)

Spectrex is the world leader in the flame and open path gas detectors field. The company is fully committed to providing clients with the best-quality and highest-performance flame detectors to enhance the safety of employees, capital investments and the environment. Being the first to launch major innovations that have become trade standards such as the first UV/IR and IR3 flame detector designs, Spectrex continues to offer, over 30 years, 40 different flame detector designs to meet application challenges from offshore to mall floors, from Alaska to Malaysia. Spectrex was first to incorporate the xenon flash in OPGD detectors to solve false alarm issues common in the industry. Today, over 28 major OPGD designs are offered by Spectrex for continuous hydrocarbon and toxic gas monitoring.
