CCTV flame detector
02 October 2009
The Draeger Flame 5000 colour imaging based CCTV Flame Detector has been certified as SIL 2 capable. The Flame 5000 is different to traditional radiation, or combined radiation and CCTV cameras because it uses the camera to detect the flame. Designed as a stand-alone system and housed within a single unit, it combines colour imaging with advanced digital signal processing and software algorithms to process live video images and interpret the characteristics of a flame.

It can eliminate false alarms caused by day-to-day workplace influences such as hot processes, flare reflections and hot CO2 emissions.
The Draeger Flame 5000 can also be used to provide live video images, and can be fully integrated with a control system or fire panel to provide fault and fire signalling using normal 0-20mA or relay outputs.
Able to detect fires of 0.1m² or more at 44m within a 90º horizontal field of view, it can be operated in temperatures ranging from -60 to +85ºC. Simple to install with a stainless steel mounting bracket that can be rotated to ensure optimum positioning, this accurate detector is also fitted with automatic optical verification. This advanced facility checks the window for contamination and ensures that the field of view is not compromised by obstructions placed immediately in front of the detector.
For immediate, visual confirmation of the operational status on-site, a tri-colour LED is located on the front of the detector, with green signifying normal operation, yellow verifying a fault and red indicating the presence of flame. A built-in memory card enables the detector to record events both before and after every alarm.
With standard units weighing just 2.5kg, the Draeger Flame 5000 is supplied with a stainless steel or aluminium finish and, as well as SIL 2, meets the requirements of ATEX, IECEx, FM and CFM Approvals.
