After years of flame sensing research and development, Optect has developed the world's first optically enhanced long range flame detector.
Optect's IR3 detector is ideal for those looking to cover large areas from a single device or detect ultra-small fires. For perspective, a single candle flame is detectable at 20m.
IR3 Flame Detection Now At Long Range
1ft x 1ft industry standard heptane pan fire detection limits:
5 second data assessment time: 500m
60 second data assessment time: 1000m
Why Optect's Flame Sensor
Flame sensors can detect fires in under 5 seconds. Optect has extended this capability for long range applications.
IR3 flame detectors are inherently reliable. With two rejection channels and one positive ID channel, they are known to have false alarm rates of less than 1 in 15 years. Optect has developed advanced new false alarm suppression techniques to further increase the reliability.
Energy and Data Efficient
Optect's device can be powered with a small PV panel and battery. Alarm signals can be sent over standard relays and RS-485 connections or low bandwidth license free radio networks.
Protection of Power Lines
Installed every km
Devices are attached every km, covering the area under the power lines and nearby forested areas. They have their own power and telecommunication system that works even when power and cell networks are down.
Instant fire detection
For early warnings of:
Fires approaching power lines
Fires starting underneath power lines
Fires starting near power lines
The system detects:
Number of sensors triggered and direction of travel
Local atmospheric conditions
High reliability means resources can be committed immediately, so even the most dangerous fires can be stopped before they grow out of control.
PREVENT THE NEXT MEGA FIRE
Every Minute Counts
Evacuate nearby residents faster and more efficiently
Catch fires early and prevent large scale damage
Save the Environment
Reduce the spread of fires to prevent the release of CO2 and toxic gases
With Optect's new long range system, save money too
