F200K Ex

Compact case with integrated flame sensor and dual amplifier for fail safe operation


  • Intensity adjust in multiple steps
  • Digital circuit design for flame evaluation
  • Status indication by LED's 24 V DC operating voltage
  • Two electronic channel system for fail safe operation and supervision
  • LED bar flame intensity indication and 4 (0) ... 20 mA analog output
  • LED bar trend indication selectable for an optimum adjustment to the flame direction

The Compact Flame Detector is a safety device and comply to DIN EN 230 for oil operation, DIN EN 298 for gas operation and to the additional requirements of DIN VDE 0116. Furthermore the basic requirements for safety function equipment of guideline 97/23/EG (Pressure Device Guideline) and meets as well the guideline 90/396/EWG (Gas Device Guideline) are fulfilled.
The Compact Flame Detector's task is the supervision of the flame, independent from the conditions inside the firing chamber (i.e. glowing bricks or - chamber lining) and when a flame out is detected, to give the signal to shut off the fuel flow.
The Compact Flame Detector is mainly used for furnaces without a complex flame selection demands, for Power- or Heating
Plants, Chemistry Industries which uses fuels like oil, gas, powdered coal or mixed fuel.

Design and operation
The Compact Flame Detector integrates the components of flame sensor and switching amplifier in one cylindrically case, the light incidence aperture is positioned in line with the axis. The F 200 K2... Ex has two external selectable sensitivity ranges, each with a 6-position selector switch for sensitivity and as well frequency transmission ranges according below mentioned technically specifications. This allows an optimum of adaptation to the flame supervision. Cut out filtering for the line frequency and its harmonics is provided. The standard version is intended for 50 Hz line frequency, on request also manufacturing and delivery for 60 Hz applications is possible. The display- and manual setup switches are covered from the case cap at the rear side.
Beside the LED bar graph display for intensity one additional analog output with 4 (0) ... 20 mA for the flame intensity and the
flame condition is available. The LED bar graph display can be used as a help function for adjustment and sensor positioning, enabled by an internal switch. The direct measurement of the flame intensity is provided through test points.
