Dräger Flame 2300 Flame Detector

The Dräger Flame 2300 is an explosion-proof combined UV/IR Flame Detector used for the detection of hydrocarbon based fires. This Draeger Flame Detector provides flexibility with its numerous output modes, and advanced design features ensure reliability in the detection of fires whilst at the same time providing excellent immunity to potential false alarm sources.

Simple installation and commissioning
The Dräger Flame 2300 Flame Detector is easily installed with a stainless steel mounting bracket; this can be rotated to ensure optimum positioning of the detector in relation to the potential fire source. Angular markings allow the positioning angles of the detector to be recorded for future reference.

Detector flexibility
As well as a 4 to 20 mA output and 3 relays, an optional RS 485 output is also available, which can be multi-dropped to a central location. This provides a number of options for detector monitoring and the triggering of the necessary control action upon the detection of a fire.

Automatic and manual optics checks
Automatic checks of the detector electronics and optics ensure no fault goes undetected. Additionally the test can be triggered manually at any time.

Isolated 4 to 20 mA as standard
Complete flexibility enables the detector to be operated from a separate power supply (as a 4 wire device) or as a 3 wire device where there is no requirement for an isolated output.

Easily visible status LED
A tri-colored LED which is visible at the front of the detector provides a simple status indication to personnel in close proximity to the detector. Green indicates normal operation; yellow indicates a fault and red indicates the presence of radiation.

False alarm immunity
The Draeger Flame 2300 Flame Detector provides the highest level of false alarm immunity. This is because the detector requires both IR and UV sensors to alarm before the detector will itself output an alarm condition and such action ensures that false alarms are all but non-existent.

Worldwide approvals
The Dräger Flame 2300 Flame Detector can be used worldwide with the following approvals: ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA.
