SIL2 Sharpeye 40/40 ATEX flame detector

The SIL2 Sharpeye ATEX flame detector offers a very high performance with a MTBF of 150,000 hours and available in UV/IR, IR3, or IR4 versions. It quickly detects and reports all fires, regardless of fuel, at very long distances (up to 65 metres) with a response time of below 5 seconds in the worst case.

  • ATEX & IECEx, FM/FMC/CSA multi-spectrum SIL2 certified optical flame detector
  • 3 sensor versions are available: UV/IR, IR3 or IR4
  • Heated glass for operation in difficult conditions (snow, ice, condensation)
  • Sensitivity selection to ensure reliable detection without zone crossing
  • Multiple outputs available: relay contacts, 4-20 mA analog output, MODBUS communication, HART protocol
Additional information

The Sharpeye SIL2 ATEX flame detector is available in 3 sensor versions:

  • 40/40I flame detector (IR3): Combination of 3 infrared sensors for hydrocarbon detection fires up to 65 meters.
  • 40/40M flame detector (IR4): Combination of 4 infrared sensors for hydrocarbon and hydrogen flames detection over distances of 5 to 65 meters.
  • 40/40L flame detector (UV/IR): Combination of a UV and IR sensor for the detection of hydrocarbon, hydrogen, and metal fires with a fast response time (<150 msec).

A three-colour LED visible on the front of the detector gives a simple indication of the detector's status to personnel in the immediate vicinity of the system. Green indicates standard operation, yellow indicates an error, and red indicates the presence of fire radiation.

Installation is simple! The detector is easy to install. A stainless steel swivel bracket allows the sensor to be rotated in all directions at an angle of up to 60° to position it optimally in relation to the potential fire source.

In addition to a fixed gas detection system, the Sharpeye flame detector can be connected to a fire or gas detection controller. It also can be combined with many ATEX accessories (ATEX cable glands, sirens and alarms, etc.)
