Viking VSF300 Intelligent Video Flame Detector

The Viking VSF300 is an explosion-proof intelligent video flame detector (iVFD) capable of detecting an n-heptane (gasoline) fire at 200 feet and JP4 (kerosene-gasoline blend jet fuel) at 300 feet. The detector processes live video images to detect the characteristic properties of flames using onboard digital signal processing (DSP) and advanced software algorithms.

Features

• Comprehensive design support and services provided by Viking Integrated Safety
• Intelligent visual flame detection (iVFD) principle ensures maximum false alarm immunity and eliminates sensitivity loss in the presence of modulated sunlight and black body heat
• Continuous optical test, without a reflector
• Verifies operation and improves device up-time
• Microprocessor controlled heated-optics
• Maintains operation in harsh weather conditions (snow, ice, condensation)
• International hazardous area approvals: FM / ATEX / IEC Ex
• Certified performance testing to multiple fuels: FM 3260 / EN 54-10
• Spatially aware—single sensitivity detection
• External testing with a long-range flame simulator minimizes the need for scaffolding
• Easy integration using industry-standard outputs: Alarm and Fault Relays, 0–20mA, HART as standard
• Certified SIL 2 capable
• Worldwide marine approvals
