Spectrex SharpEye 20/20-MI IR3 Non-Atex Flame Detector

The Spectrex SharpEye 20/20-MI is a high performance and high reliable Non-EX IR3 flame detector in stainless steel housing.

The 20/20-MI offers one of the highest false alarm immunities in the non-EX range of flame detector while being capable of detecting hydrocarbon fuel and gas fires up to 40 meters distance. This performance is achieved by placing all infra-red sensors in the invisible spectrum of a fire. With FM performance approvals on more than 10 substances the unit is keeping a SharpEye on your safety in many application!

At the heart of the Spectrex 20/20-MI lies the remarkable Triple IR technology. Unlike conventional flame detectors that use single or dual-wavelength IR sensors, this system integrates three infrared sensors, which enable it to detect fires with unparalleled precision and sensitivity. By honing in on the 4.5-micron spectral band, the unit optimizes its response to the characteristic emissions of various hydrocarbon-based fires.

Performance

One of the most impressive aspects of the Spectrex 20/20-MI is its remarkable detection range. It boasts the capability to identify a n-heptane fire measuring just 30 x 30cm (0.1m2) from a staggering distance of 40 meters. This remarkable reach ensures that fires can be identified at an early stage, empowering swift responses and mitigating potential hazards before they escalate into catastrophic events.

Furthermore, the ease of installation is a key advantage that sets the Spectrex 20/20-MI apart from traditional fire detection systems. With a pre-installed 2-meter cable, the unit can be seamlessly integrated into various environments, minimizing setup time and effort. Whether in light-industrial facilities, commercial spaces, or critical infrastructure, this plug-and-play installation process facilitates quick deployment and immediate protection.
