SharpEye Detectors Selected for Korean Car Manufacturing Facility

February 2016

A Korean car manufacturer, based in Chihuahua, Mexico, has recently installed the latest Spectrex commercial IR3 20/20MPI Flame Detector. 
The manufacturer chose to install the commercial detectors during the construction process to provide superior flame detection.  


When the construction process is complete, the facility is expected to keep most of the 20/20MPI detectors, but replace some of them with explosion proof 40/40I detectors in classified areas. The 40/40I Optical Flame Detector is a multi spectrum based on three IR bands (IR3) and detects fuel and gas fires at long distances with the highest immunity to false alarms. The 40/40I IR3 is the most durable detector on the market and can detect a 1ft2 (0.1 m2) gasoline pan fire at 215ft (65m) in less than 5 seconds.

The 20/20MPI Commercial Flame Detector is a low cost, high performance, compact Triple IR (IR3) Flame Detector in a lightweight polycarbonate housing. It retains all the benefits of IR3 technology - long distance detection (up to 140ft / 43m) along with the highest immunity to false alarms. For more information about the 20/20MPI, click here
