UV (ultra Violet) sensing has become the prefered method of flame monitoring. All Elcontrol Flame Scanners use the highest quality UV cells with the widest possible sensing range. Elcontrol offer a number of options for the FP87 Scanner, these include Kopex Cabling systems, IIC rated cable glands, Synthetic Quartz lens or windows. We also over the option of Infra Red flame sensing, or a combination of UV sensing with and IR backup.
