IPES-IR3 Flame Sensor By Tim Quine ENGR 518
Purpose Detect fires in industrial applications such as refineries, paint productions, oil and gas boilers. Send alarm signals to users receiving devices or alarm systems. This is done via closed loop current signals.
Device Characteristics Enclosure Material – Stainless Steel Grade 316 or Aluminum 6061 Weight – Stainless Steel 11 lbs. or Aluminum 5.5 lbs. Cable – 6,200 ft. (18 AWG)

False Alarms Cost industries money due to down time. Must know difference or the result could be catastrophic. Uses microprocessor, algorithms, multiple sensors and wavelength range settings.
My Future Uses Compressed Air Foam System Small scale flame sensors Detecting all fires
