The “Spot-Fire” was developed for detecting flames from early stage fires. It’s a survey instrument that reacts to flames over a wide area of property and distance. The flame detection design standard is to detect a blaze from a one sq ft pan of gasoline at a distance of 300 feet. Our engineers optimized the physical, optical and software parameters and came up with technology that is far more sensitive. Indeed, the SpotFire can detect a butane lighter flame at about 60 ft. The gasoline fire standard is also amply covered by this product. Simple to install, durable and weatherproof, the SpotFire is the perfect detector for large areas where gas leaks or other flammable hazards can occur.
Spec wise, the SpotFire is packaged for easy mounting on a post or wall, where it surveys a 150 degree side to side swath with a 300+ feet range. One instrument can monitor a 2-5 acre property, detecting flames from virtually any source.
The SpotFire works day and night, as there is no interference or effect from sun light, headlights, flashlights, cap-lamps, or from fluorescent or HID building lights. It reacts within 5 or so seconds to flames from burning methane, propane, butane, gasoline, alcohol, paper, and every combustible material we’ve tried.
The unit is a delight to demonstrate. I was giving a talk at the Marcellus Insight Symposium a few weeks ago at the Philadelphia Convention Center. My subject was Rel-Tek’s WellBoss hazardous gas and fire detection system, which includes a SpotFire unit. During my presentation, I activated a SpotFire unit on...(Read more download PDF file below)
We also have 6 headed spotfire.
