MSA FlameGuard 5 Series

Designed with advanced ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) sensing technology, the FlameGard 5 Series represents the state-of-the-art in secure flame monitoring. The FlameGard 5 MSIR, a multi-spectral infrared detector designed to detect hydrocarbon fires, features breakthrough Neural Network Technology (NNT) for reliable discrimination between actual flames and nuisance false alarm sources within a distance of up to 70 m.
FlameGard 5 UV/IR is designed to detect hydrocarbon fires within 15 m, FlameGard 5 UV/IR-H2 is optimized to detect hydrogen based flames, and FlameGard 5 UV/IR-E with stainless steel housing and Ex e wiring compartment enables high level of resistance in harsh environments.
The FlameGard 5 Series flame detectors provide standard 4–20 mA output with optional relays or HART and Modbus digital communication. Suitable for a wide range of applications in the production, transport and processing.
