High-quality flame detectors & amplifiers are two components of any flame detection system - the performance of the detection system largely depends on the discrimination capability of its amplifier.
In order to process and interpret those signals correctly, amplifiers must be properly configured/ tuned to the unique operating environment of the burner Amplifiers must be “tuned in” to certain frequencies depending on the type of flame (gas, coal, or oil) and wavelength (infrared vs. ultraviolet) being detected by the system.
The latest model in the Forney Corporation line, this flame detection amplifier can support multiple profiles selected in response to a digital input signal from the Burner Management System.
The amplifier also seamlessly connects with a Termiflex/SmartDisplay® for system monitoring at a glance; operators can quickly verify that all system components are operating as expected with a readout display. Integrating the IDDX into your current system doesn’t require any complex wiring or programming setup - simply attach to a standard DIN rail and follow the configuration guide.
Forney designed the IDDX with simple, yet robust features to automate much of the work involved with proper safety monitoring of complex burner systems. Adding the IDDX to your existing setup puts the power of protecting your system right at your fingertips.
The IDDX Flame Detector Amplifier is a stand-alone intelligent controller that is compatible with both infrared and ultraviolet IDD-model Flame Detectors. The IDDX is adaptable to operations in a variety of industries, including oil, coal, or gas, and it is compatible in flame detection systems for many equipment types, including:
