Teledyne Unveils Latest ‘Spyglass SG50-F Series’ to Detect Flames and Safeguarding People, Assets
Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection has unveiled its SpyglassTM SG50-F series of flame detectors to make
the safeguarding of people and assets easier than ever before. With updated optics and algorithms, and on-board video in either colour or near-infrared options, the SG50-F series offers superior performance and security.
For any facility to protect its most valuable resources such as human lives and capital assets, reliable flame
detection systems are a necessity. SpyglassTM SG50-F series open-path flame detectors elevate the level of reliability and functionality available in comparison with existing flame detection products on the market.
Notably, these innovative flame detectors come equipped with HD video capabilities, allowing for the
detection of fires that may not be visible to the naked eye. Colour video is effective in detecting fuel fires like gasoline and jet fuel, while the near-infrared video option can detect fires caused by other fuels such as hydrogen and methanol.
The on-board video also enables remote confirmation of fire situations and provides valuable information on fire progression and suppression methods. Such information can prove vital in responding to fire
emergencies and enabling users to make important safety decisions from a remote location.
SpyglassTM series products from Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection feature a robust and durable housing.
Made from 316L stainless steel to meet IP66/IP68 and NEMA 250 6P protection rating standards, the
enclosure houses state-of-the-art optic technology and advanced software algorithms, enabling rapid and reliable fire detection. The range offers improved optical flame detection capabilities, with a quicker detection time and better performance even over extended distances. They can serve as a cost-effective alternative to employing multiple line of sight point gas detectors, which would entail higher initial costs and maintenance expenses.
Notably, these detectors also offer industry-leading false alarm immunity to several challenging environments while performing in adverse climates.
Carrying a wide range of global approvals that include ATEX, FMus, FMc, IECEx, EACX and SIL2, all
SpyglassTM flame detectors work by analysing the absorption of radiation caused by gases in the atmosphere and comparing it to background atmospheric absorption. They come with triple infrared (IR3) and UV-IR options to suit a range of applications. The IR3 version is specifically designed to detect hydrocarbons, making it ideal for applications such as refineries, oil and gas platforms, FPSO (floating production storage and offloading) systems, petrochemical plants, marine facilities, compressor stations and turbine enclosures.
There is also an IR3-H2 option for hydrogen and energy transition applications.
For those seeking a solution for both hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon fires, look no further than the UV-IR option, which is perfect for battery rooms, as well as ammonia and metal-based applications. There is even a UV-IR-F option offering suitability for munitions facilities.
Supplied with configuration and video display software, the SpyglassTM SG50-F series offers multiple output options for easy detector communication, such as 4-20mA, Modbus, HART and relays.
Teledyne products include digital imaging sensors, cameras and systems within the visible, infrared and X-ray spectra, monitoring and control instrumentation for marine and environmental applications, harsh environment interconnects, electronic test and measurement equipment, aircraft information management systems, and defense electronics and satellite communication subsystems.
