D-LX 201

D-LX 201/721
Optical compact flame monitor

Flexible and selective compact flame monitor for high requirements. For optical monitoring of all fuel flames, including in complex multi-burner plants. 

Functionality: Optical flame monitoring

  • Very wide temperature range: Deployable without change, certified and without the need for accessories for insulation, heating or cooling
  • Wide dynamic range: Automatic gain adjustment to the brightness of the flame
  • Consistently dual-channel: Highest safety combined with high availability
  • Ideal support for Functional Safety: Safety chains in high demand mode or low demand mode up to SIL 3
  • Extensive certifications
  • Local display: Operational status, settings and flame intensity visible at a single glance for the entire temperature range for all variants
  • Real-time flame stability information: Optional continuous qualification of flame stability during operation
  • D-LX 201 InformationCentre for logging of the flame signal and parameters as an ideal supplement for commissioning up to six flame monitors simultaneously
  • D-LX 721 for application with flexible fibre optic system D-LL 703 / rigid fibre optic system D-LL 704

  • Safe process control: Even during strong and fast load changes of the combustion plant the process can be controlled safely by the flame stability signal. Reactions in due time are possible
  • Increased load and fuel flexibility: Excellent selective monitoring and information about stability allow operation of the plant in less stable regimes
  • Protection against unscheduled shutdown of the burner: Burner-specific information on stability allows decisions to be made on preventive maintenance of the burner
  • Fulfillment of special requirements: Flexible presettings for different combustion situations and fuels
  • Same technology for different applications: The same product family can be used for plants in the most varied regions and on the basis of a wide range of systems of standards
  • Complex combustion plants including plants with many burners and different fuels
  • Monitoring of burner flames with widely varying fuels
  • Combustion processes with high Functional Safety requirements
  • Combustion processes in continuous operation
  • Technical data
  • Explosion protection
