New Low-Range ppm CO2 Analyser Gives Greater Accuracy, Connectivity and Options

SharpEye 40/40 Series Flame Detectors offer unmatched performance and reliability – including patented, IR3 (Triple IR) Multi-Spectrum detectors that enable detection of small fires at distances up to 65m, with enhanced immunity to false alarms. These highly specified detectors operate reliably in the harsh conditions of offshore drilling and production platforms, FPSO vessels, fuel loading and storage facilities, LNG and LPG plants and petrochemical plants throughout the world.

The latest SharpEye 40/40 Series flame detectors include the model 40/40I using the well-proven IR3 detector, offering the highest immunity to false alarms combined with a massive 65m (215ft) detection
distance for hydrocarbon fires with an enlarged cone of vision – 100º horizontal and 95º vertical.

Another major feature is the improved response to gas flames (methane, LNG, LPG, etc.) where small gas flames can be detected at distances of up to 30m (100ft). An important addition to the series is the model 40/40M Multi IR detector, which can simultaneously detect ‘invisible’ hydrogen flames at 30m (100ft) and hydrocarbon fires at 65m (215ft).

The 40/40 series comprises many detection techniques to suit every situation including triple IR (IR3), Multi IR, combined UV/IR, single IR or UV. Thus, Spectrex can offer unbiased advice on which detector is the correct solution to your detection needs.

The compact and lightweight design (only 2.5kg in stainless steel) offers low-power consumption with a heated lens for continued availability in difficult environments – as well as the reassurance of 3rd party EN54-10 /DNV performance approvals and IEC 61508 – SIL2 (TUV) certification to assure reliability. All detectors are, of course, Ex approved to ATEX / IECEx/ FM/ CSA/ GOST R / GOST K standards for Zone 1/21 hazardous area location.

The 40/40 Series detectors incorporate an integral automatic self-test which checks the devices every 15 mins to ensure correct operation. The 40/40 Series offers many interface options to ensure that the detectors
are compatible with all control and fire detection systems – outputs include 0-20mA, dry relay contacts, RS-485 ModBus and HART.

The certified operating temperature range has also been extended. The detectors will now operate reliably in temperatures from -55ºC to + 75ºC (with an option for +85ºC) allowing their use anywhere in the world.

The 40/40 Series detectors are programmable,allowing the user to alter factory default settings. Sensitivity levels, response time, alarm delay, heated lens operation, etc. are all able to be modified where required, either pre-delivery or after installation. Various accessories are provided including a Flame Simulator to allow full ‘end-to-end’ proof testing in the Ex hazardous area.
