Flame detection on the basis of a live video signal. Using a color video signal, the Dräger Flame 5000 detects characteristic properties of flames by means of its digital signal processing and software algorithmics. The Dräger Flame 5000 is approved for use in explosion-hazard areas according to ATEX, IECEx and FM/CFM.
The detector is very easy to install using a mounting bracket
of stainless steel. The swiveling mounting bracket ensures that the
device is always optimally aimed towards potential sources of fire.
The visual technology utilised within the Draeger Flame 5000
allows an operator to confirm cleanliness of the optics and identify any
obstructions within the detector’s field of view. In addition the live
video provides instant verification of a fire alarm without the operator
having to enter a dangerous area.
The Dräger Flame 5000 can detect fires of 0.1 m² at a distance
of 44 m within a horizontal visual field as of 90°. The detector’s
Field of View is a rectangular pyramid shape and represents a radial
projection of the sensing element, therefore giving it the greatest
coverage area of any flame detector currently available.
The Dräger Flame 5000 is available with aluminum or stainless steel housing. The Dräger Flame 5000 can be employed worldwide due to
the following approvals for use: ATEX, IECEx, FM and CFM.
The detector transmits live video signals. Additionally, alarm
as well as status signals can be transmitted to a controller and fire
alarm system. 0 to 20 mA signals or relay outputs are available for this
purpose. Furthermore, video recordings of the time period immediately
before and after a detected fire can be saved, collected and retrieved
by means of a digital memory card.
The device status is displayed by tricolor LED light at the
front of the device so that the status of the device is always clearly
visible for persons working close to it. Green means normal operating
conditions, the yellow LED indicates a fault and the red LED turns on if
flames are detected.
The image processing algorithms of the Dräger Flame 5000 are
sophisticated to level that false alarms can practically be excluded.
