Flame detector test unit
The Sense-WARE® T-229/4 Flame detector Test Lamp activates UV, IR and UV/IR Flame detectors that detect at 185-235 nm UV and 4.4 µ IR radiation. For UV only detectors the maximum distance is up to 8 meters (26 ft). The typical test range for IR and UV/IR detectors is up to 4 meters (13 ft).
Most IR Flame detectors have an extra alarm criterion through analyzing the flicker frequency of a fire. In order to simulate the flame flicker the lamp needs to be pulse operated. By pressing and releasing the switch ones to twice per second for the duration of the alarm delay time, the IR or UV/IR flame detector will activate.
