UV flame controller for rugged industrial applications in non continuous operation.
The IFX series is characterized by its robust die-cast aluminum housing with IP65 protection. The housing design allows quick replacement of the device on site.
The IFC 11 is a compact UV flame detector, which has been developed for single flame combustion which pro-duces little light or radiation in the visible spectrum and has very low flame modulation/flicker frequency. The design of the UV sensor ensures that the flame detector does not react to background radiation from hot refractory or from any other infra-red light source.
The UV flame detector is equipped with an optical inter-face which visibly indicates the flame signal intensity. The IFC 11 can be connected directly to the ionisation or LDR input of the control box. It is compatible in its physical di-mensions and connection capability to other series IFC flame detectors. All IFC accessories are identical and therefore this reduces the variety of components used in production and makes it simpler for field application and service.
The UV flame detector IFC 11 has been developed to meet the requirements of UL 372-2, CSA C22.2 and EN 298. The internal increase of the UV tube voltage imme-diately after apply supply voltage ensures the safety re-quirements for the examination of the UV tube to through-ignition. A simple change from ionisation flame control to the IFC 11 is permissible therefore also with control boxes without own UV tube input.
