Spectrex SharpEye 40/40M Multi IR Flame Detector

Spectrex LogoThe SharpEye 40/40M Multi IR Flame Detector is unique in being able to detect both hydrogen and hydrocarbon flames simultaneously. Each type of flame has their own spectral fingerprint which allows for the highest reliability.
This allows one type of detector to be installed for excellent flame detection in areas where hydrogen flames are a possibility, without missing hydrocarbon flames.

The 40/40M is able to detect hydrocarbon flames at up to 215ft (65m) and hydrogen flames at up to 125ft (38m), with the highest immunity to false alarms. It retains all the benefits of the SharpEye 40/40 range, including high immunity to false alarm and a wide range of approvals, including ATEX, IECEx, FM, SIL2 and many more.

Spectrex Inc. is a technology leader in optical Flame and Open Path Gas Detection (OPGD). Our patented optical UV/IR and IR3 Flame Detector designs, and pioneering patented Xenon Flash designs in OPGD detectors are now the standard for Oil & Gas projects.

A wide range of flame detectors are available, from ultra fast (msec) detection time to high sensitivity hydrocarbon and hydrogen flame detection, alongside the equally large OPGD range that can detect hazardous gases, from flammable hydrocarbons to toxic Ammonia and Hydrogen Sulfide.

All Spectrex products can operate in the toughest conditions, from African deserts to Alaskan waters and are fully approved to meet relevant third-party Ex hazardous area, performance and reliability standards to the wide range of application challenges, worldwide.
