D-LX 201

Compact flame monitor

Self-monitoring and fail-safe compact flame monitor for the monitoring of gas, oil and coal flames with integrated UV or IR flame sensor.


  • Wide sensitivity range
  • For ambient temperatures from -40°C up to +85°C
  • Highest safety combined with highest availability
  • Ideal Support for Functional Safety
  • Selective to individual burners and fuels
  • Wide range of certifications and standards covered
  • Low maintenance requirements
  • Local display for status and flame intensity
  • Optional flame stability analysis in real time

Your Benefit

  • Safe process control
    Even for strong and fast load changes of the combustion the process can be controlled safely with the flame stability analysis, reactions are possible in due time
  • Increased load and fuel flexibility
    Excellent selective monitoring and information about stability allow operation of the plant in less stable regimes like, e.g., one mill operation
  • Protection from unscheduled shut downs
    Burner specific information about the stability allows decisions for preventative maintenance
  • Fulfilment of special requirements
    Flexible pre-settings permit preparation for varying combustion conditions and fuels
  • Same technology for differing projects
    The same device technology can be used for plants in many territories and based on the most varying systems of standards
