UVH13 IP65 SELF POWERED UV FLAME SCANNER

IP65 UV Self Powered Flame Scanner

The UVH13 is a self-powered, Ultra-Violet flame scanner for use with compatible Elcontrol simple-UV flame amplifiers, such as the GP320/UVH12, GP320/UV10-NSC etc.
The casework is moulded in polycarbonate and offers ingress protection to IP65 as standard.
Sight tube connection on the UVH13 is via a 2" BSP cap nut. Flame viewing is via a 1" synthetic quartz window, with the option of a 1" lens for increased sensitivity.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The UVH13 is a self-powered, Ultra-Violet flame scanner for use with compatible Elcontrol simple-UV flame amplifiers, such as the GP320/UVH12, GP320/UV10-NSC etc.

The casework is moulded in polycarbonate and offers ingress protection to IP65 as standard.

Sight tube connection on the UVH13 is via a 2" BSP cap nut. Flame viewing is via a 1" synthetic quartz window, with the option of a 1" lens for increased sensitivity.

The unit is supplied, as standard, fitted with an IP65 gland and 2 m of 7-core screened cable. Other lengths of cable, or cabling options (e.g. a flying plug/socket assembly) may be supplied to order.

OPERATIONAL DESCRIPTION

The unit contains an ultra-violet sensitive gas discharge tube supplied from a high-voltage AC supply. When UV radiation is incident on the electrodes within the cell, ionisation takes place, and a current flows. This ionisation is quenched every mains half-cycle, resulting in a theoretical maximum value of 100 ionisation's per second (for 50 Hz mains frequency). This current flow is processed within an electronic circuit, resulting in an output signal consisting of a stream of pulses. This signal is processed within the corresponding trip amplifier to provide a flame ON or flame OFF indication.

Optionally, for situations where the UV signal from the flame may occasionally be unreliable, the UVH13 may be supplied with either a silicon backup cell, sensitive to infra-red/visible-light flicker, or with a PbS infra-red detector. Contact Elcontrol engineering for further information.
