The Quanta-Flame system consists of ultra-violet self-check and infrared/frequency based flame detectors. The scanner contains a high quality UV detector tube, which is checked by means of a magnetic shutter capable of 10 million operations. The infrared/frequency based uses a photovoltaic cell, which senses the infrared light spectrum. The flame sensors are equipped with a fused silica quartz lens having a 1.2 degree horizontal view path to optically magnify the flame radiation and achieve maximum burner discrimination.
