FS20X Optical flame detector - UV/IR fire detection
The Honeywell FS20X is a powerful and reliable UV / IR detector combining an ultraviolet and infrared sensor, thereby increasing immunity to false alarms by measuring two different flame spectra.
If the detector's UV signal is degraded due to thick smoke or contaminated lens, the IR sensor will trigger the fire alarm despite reduced sensitivity and a slower response time. Detailed description
UV / IR detector: combination of 2 different sensors
To trigger a fire alarm, the UV / IR detector must simultaneously receive information from the UV and IR sensors. In case of arc welding, the UV sensor will be energized but the IR sensor will not detect heat, there will be no fire alarm. Similarly, facing an object emitting a large heat source, the IR sensor will react but the UV sensor will not be triggered.
Two high performance microprocessors
Two microprocessors guarantee measurements performance and reliability with a very short response time. The master microprocessor performs high-speed digital sampling and signal processing calculations, while the slave microprocessor processes various sensor data such as self-diagnosis, interface communication, event and data storage.
Up to 60 meters range
The FS20X UV / IR detector has an over 60 meters detection range (with very high sensitivity setting) able to detect a heptane reference fire of 0.1 m2. Its vision cone is, in terms of volumetric coverage, significantly higher than that of most UV / IR detectors on the market.
