40/40M Multi IR Flame Detector

The 40/40M Multi IR Flame Detector is specifically designed for detection of hydrocarbon and hydrogen flames. It detects hydrocarbon-based fuel and gas fires at long distances with the highest immunity to false alarms. The 40/40M can detect a gasoline pan fire at 215 ft (65m) or a hydrogen flame at 125 ft (38m) in less than 5 seconds.
The 40/40M is the most durable and weather resistant flame detector currently on the market. Its new features include a heated window, to eliminate condensation and icing; HART capabilities, lower power requirements, and a compact, lighter design.
Due to increased reliability, the 40/40 Series warranty period has been extended to 5 years and is SIL2 (TUV) approved to IEC 61508.
