The IFC 50 is a compact UV flame detector specially designed for use in industrial firing systems. It provides one galvanically isolated NC contact and one galvanically isolated NO contact with high switching capacity. This makes the IFC 50 suitable for multi-flame monitoring with ambient light control. In accordance with EN 298:2012-11, the IFC 50 flame detector is intended for automatic burner control systems that check whether a flame signal is still present after a control shutdown.
The UV tube used ensures that background radiation, e.g. from glowing brick linings or mixing equipment parts, is not detected.
The internal increase of the UV tube voltage immediately after applying the supply voltage ensures the safety requirement according to EN 298:2012-11 for checking the UV tube for ignition for intermittent burner operation.
By means of the diopter, which also serves as the flame detector's interface to the combustion chamber, the IFC 50 can be adapted to special requirements with various accessories.
The flame intensity can be easily recognised via an LED as a visual indicator. A simple diagnosis of the flame intensity is thus possible directly at the firing device.
