The FV400 Series of flame detectors is a family of advanced, high technology triple IR flame detectors that provide reliable wide area flame detection of burning hydrocarbon fuels. They also offer excellent false alarm immunity. They are intended for use worldwide to protect sites in marine and land-based installations.
The FV400 Series has three flameproof variants as follows:
FV411f - No camera
FV412f - PAL camera
FV413f - NTSC camera
All three variants use triple waveband, infrared sensors combined with powerful algorithms to give reliable flame detection with a wide field of view and long range to protect a large area. The detectors are solar blind with excellent immunity to reject false alarm sources.
The optional built-in camera can transmit a “detector's eye view” of the protected area to a CCTV monitor. Superimposed onto the camera image is a video overlay showing alarm and status information.
The detectors have the following interfaces to connect to external monitoring equipment:
- 4-20 mA Current Loop with HART
- MZX Loop (JCI MZX Fire Detection Panels)
- Video Output (FV412f and FV413f)
- MODBUS (RS485)
- Fire and Fault Relays
- Conventional Interface
The FV400 Series detectors have a robust stainless housing and can be installed in harsh, indoor or outdoor environments. The enclosure is designed to accept a wide range of cables with the wiring made directly to internal terminal blocks.
The FV400 Series detectors are ATEX and IEC Ex approved for use in hazardous areas for gas and dust risks. They are also VdS (EN54), FM and Marine approved. They can also be used as part of an IEC61508 safety capable system up to SIL2 level.
The FV400 Series detectors are highly configurable to provide versatile detectors for all applications. They include features designed to reduce maintenance, including remote configuration, internal diagnostic logs and built-in alarm and window cleanliness tests.
FieldComm Group (FCG) makes available to its members and to the public certain device driver (DD) files, in various forms, that have passed certain tests conducted by or through FCG. The DD files are, or are created from, submissions to FCG by FCG members and are provided by FCG AS IS. FCG disclaims all liability for the accuracy, suitability or use of the DD files. Each member creating DD files has its own policies regarding supporting use of those files, and may, for instance support use of DD object code files, but not DeviceInfo or other files. While FCG is under no obligation to provide support for use of any DD files, FCG welcomes all inquiries on the subject and will often be able to assist.
