BFD4040I

Triple IR (IR3) Flame Detector

Superior performance, reliability and immunity to false alarms

The new 40/40I, is a multi-spectrum flame detector based on three IR bands (IR3) that detects fuel and gas fires at long distances with an incredible immunity to false alarms. The 40/40I IR3 can detect a 1 ft2 (0.1m2) gasoline pan fire at 215 ft (65m) in less than 5 seconds.

The 40/40I is the most durable and weather resistant flame detector currently on the market. Its new features include a heated window, to eliminate condensation and icing; HART capabilities for digital communications; lower power requirements; and a compact, lighter design.
