The Spextrex SharpEye CCTV Flame detector is a selfcontained,
triple spectrum optical flame detector that
incorporates a video colour camera. The detector’s IR
sensors and spectral band pass filters have been selected
to ensure the greatest degree of spectral matching to
the radiant energy emissions of fire, and the lowest
degree of matching to non-fire stimuli.
The colour video camera enables the user to investigate
the monitored area, to identify the fire’s source and
location, and help select the best response to thesituation (activation of fire suppression means).
Configuration can be made to issue a live colour video
picture signal at all times, on request or only when a
fire is detected. Therefore, the detector is also useful
for standard CCTV purposes.
The patented triple IR circuit design scans for oscillating
IR radiation (1 to 10 Hz) in the spectral bands ranging
from 4.0 to 5.0 microns. This highly advanced detector
uses a programmed algorithm, which checks the ratio
and correlation of data received by the three sensors.
Only detection of radiation emissions matching the
spectral fingerprint of fire will produce an alarm,
making the CCTV Flame detector highly immume
to false alarms.
