Specifying and installing fire protection technology carries significant levels of responsibility. With so many variable risks in so many different industries, it’s critical that the chosen technology will offer the very best protection in any given circumstance.
History has taught us that early fire detection is by far the best way to minimise the spread of fire. Identifying a spark, before it produces smoke or becomes an actual fire, can help to minimise the risk of fire damage. Talentum® is a high-speed rear-viewing infrared device for flame detection. Designed specifically to detect a spark, or a characteristic flicker of a flame, faster and more accurately than a smoke or heat detector, even where dust, steam or smoke are commonplace, Talentum® provides unmatched fire protection for high value industries.
If fast, accurate fire detection is critical, choose Talentum®, because when it comes to fire detection, only the best will do.

An optical flame detector senses the heat and light produced by a flame
Using infra-red (IR) sensing technology flames can be detected through such elements as dust, steam and smoke; they are also immune to the effects of wind or draughts of air. With the addition of an ultra-violet (UV) sensor a flame detector becomes highly immune to false signals such as sunlight. The optical sensors within the detector receive the IR and/or UV radiation emitted by the flames. The processor within the detector analyses the optical sensor signal waveforms and determines if they represent flames and if so accepts them. If the signals do not match the internal algorithms for flames, then they are considered to be false sources and rejected.
