The UVH6/FP/AMP is an ATEX and IECEx certified Trip Amplifier that is used in conjunction with the UVH6/FP/MK1 flame scanner. Available with a range of internal electronic options, including digital units for maximum operational flexibility. Some variants offer two trip amplifiers within a single enclosure and 4-20mA outputs for each attached scanner. The standard internal options are the GP420 dual trip amplifier and the IS320 intrinsically safe.
The GP420 is a member of the Elcontrol 'GP' series of general-purpose trip amplifier cards. The GP420 can accommodate two plug-in trip amplifier cards from the Elcontrol SPL180 range. ln addition, there is the option of a signal conditioning card providing analogue current-loop signal strength outputs (0-10mA or 4-20mA) for each of the two trip amplifiers. Please see further details on the GP420 motherboard HERE. The SPL180/UV10 is the most commonly used daughterboard with the GP420. This board offers UV digital pulse counting technology. Please the the section on the SPL180/UV10 for further details. Other daughterboards are also available.
The GP420 provides a flexible choice of output relay configurations:
Each flame amplifier card may operate its own relay.
One relay may be configured to operate if either amplifier card is sensing flame ('OR' mode), the other only if both are sensing flame ('AND' mode).
For trip amplifiers offering a 'fault' or 'alarm' output signal, one of the relays may be assigned to this function, and the other to operate in 'AND' or 'OR' mode as previously described.
IS320 INTRINSICALLY SAFE
The IS320 offer the benefits of intrinsically safe certification. The IS320 can only support 1 x flame scanner, with a single relay output. The unit can be factory configured to provide a combination of flame on and alarm outputs.
The UVH6/FP series of flameproof enclosures may be used to house scanners, trip amplifiers, combined scanner/amplifiers, and spark ignition units. In addition, the IS320 series of Intrinsically Safe flame amplifiers may be housed in this enclosure.
