The ClearSign Eye pilot sensor does not expose any component directly to the flame. This eliminates reliability issues typically seen with current products.
Clear On/Off Flame Signal
The flame acts as a component in the electrical sensing circuit. When a flame is in the vicinity of the sensing probes it produces naturally occurring ions which alter the circuit and produce a clear signal indicating a flame is present.
The system was designed with the customer installation and support in mind. No modification to the BMS, mounting plate, or other hardware is required.
Stainless Steel Components
Constructed with stainless steel or ceramic components, allowing reliable operation in high temperature environments. The stainless-steel bracket eliminates the shorting issues associated with common flame rods. There are no ceramic components in any of our brackets.
The control module outputs a 4-20mA signal to allow for quick and easy connection to existing systems.
Our sensor technology is based on prior combustion health monitoring system research. Over 5 years of development and testing led to the creation of the technology which drives both the combustion health monitoring system and the ClearSign Eye™ Pilot Sensor.
The ClearSign Eye™ InPlace Pilot Sensor is designed to be installed with a custom or modified mounting plate allowing for the sensor to be removed while leaving the pilot in place.
RetroFit Pilot Sensor
The ClearSign Eye™ RetroFit Pilot Sensor is designed to directly replace flame rods on installed burners without requiring any modification to the existing mounting plate. The sensor assembly is installed using the existing flame rod mounting plate hole.
The ClearSign Eye™ pilot sensor is a new and innovative technology designed to provide pilot flame sensing without the reliability issues of existing technology.
Unlike traditional flame rod and bracket assembly construction which can wear over time and crack leading to signal issues or shorts, the majority of our components are stainless-steel, including the pilot bracket. This was done to make a more robust and reliable product.
Q – How fast is the response time?wesley.coffman2019-10-23T17:13:33+00:00
Very fast! The sensor is capable of measuring at a rate of about 10 microseconds. However, this is much faster than the dynamics of a flame, therefore the sensor typically operates at a more useful millisecond timescale.
