FS24X Optical flame detector - IR3 detector (Triple IR)
The Honeywell FS24X optical flame detector is an efficient and reliable IR3 detector combining three infrared sensors on different optical wavelengths, thereby increasing immunity to false alarms.
The FS24X detector is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications that require a maximum degree of false alarm rejection and the highest fire detection performance. The detector is available in aluminum or stainless steel 316 version for installation in the harshest environments. Detailed description
Honeywell FS24X IR3 detector: the combination of 3 IR sensors
Using ultra-fast semiconductor IR quantum sensors, the IR3 FS24X optical flame detector is able to distinguish flames from other light sources, being sensitive only to specific optical wavelengths and flame pulse frequencies.
To trigger an alarm, the 3 IR sensors will need to be energized, which avoids false alarms caused by various factors like sunlight fluctuations.
Two high performance microprocessors
Sophisticated software algorithms and two microprocessors provide the FS24X flame detector with the highest fire detection performance, as well as optimal false alarms rejection.
Up to 60 meters range
With an over 60 meters range in the "high sensitivity" setting, the FS24X flame detector is capable of detecting a 0.1 m2 heptane reference fire in a few seconds.
Its vision cone is, in terms of volumetric coverage, significantly higher than most IR3 detectors on the market.
