Sentinel Ultraviolet Flame Monitor
The Sentinel flame monitor reliably provides remote flame detection up to 550 feet away, durability, ease of maintenance and rapid response time. If the monitor detects the absence of a flame for an adjustable amount of time, a set of dry form C contacts are activated and the pilot re-ignition system is set into motion. Response times are markedly quicker than those of a standard thermocouple since the monitor can immediately sense the loss of flame. Since the Sentinel monitors a UV spectrum specific to hydrocarbons, solar ultraviolet rays have no effect on the monitor.
