The new SPECTRA ™ BC (burner control) sensors from AMETEK Power Instruments are extremely robust, compact, solid-state optical flame sensors that offer a host of features and provide maximum performance and reliability.

SPECTRA flame sensors feature IR or UV detectors making them suitable for a wide variety of fuels, including coal, oil and gas. 
 
Their robust design meets or exceeds FM and CE requirements.  The units are 100% solid-state, which enables the SPECTRA BC11 to be among the most compact industrial flame sensors available.  There are no tubes or shutters to fail.  Installation is simplified as the loop-powered design only requires a single twisted pair cable for wiring connections.  The 4-20mA analog output provides direct connection to burner management systems, eliminating the need for separate signal conditioners.  High-temperature electronics enables the sensor to function at elevated operating temperatures.

SPECTRA BC11 sensors help improve burner efficiency, reduce NOx emissions, and improve operating safety.  The sensors are ideal for difficult to diagnose burner applications such as incinerators, process heaters, kilns and package boilers.   

AMETEK Power Instruments is a leader in the development and manufacture of sensor systems for boilers and burners used by the utility, petrochemical, process, and marine industries worldwide.  It also is a leader in the design and manufacture of power measurement and recording instrumentation used by the electric power and manufacturing industries.
