Flame detectors are digital electro-optical radiant energy transducers that detect the broadband energy emitted during fire combustion processes.
The flame detector uses optical technology for its detection. A flame emits electromagnetic radiation in the infrared (IR), visible light and ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths, depending on the fuel source.
This alarm device is part of the fire prevention system in the interior of houses and buildings. They are equipped with a sensor (siren) that is activated when it detects the presence of smoke or flames, at the same time that it sends alarms to the designated persons.
