SIL2 approved multicriteria protector series V-530

Protector for hazardous and petrochemical, oil and gas installationsAutroGuard® V-530 is a SIL2-certified multicriteria protector series. Specific Ex ia or Ex ic versions are available for use in use in intrinsically safe areas EX zone 0, 1 and 2. It provides a new generation technology that simplifies installation and commissioning, and increases fire safety.Extreme sensor dynamics provide reliable detection that has greatly reduced detection time and nuisance alarms, and expanded the use to cover even more application areas. The type of operation is configurable to Heat, Optical or Multisensor, covering several applications.It has a wide range of fire safety features included in one single device, providing significant reduction of wiring and installation costs - and a cleaner look. The self-sensing technology ensures that the protector is as reliable as when it left the factory for its entire life cycle.

DYFI3D technology
AutroGuard® utilizes DYFI3D technology; MultiAngle/MultiWavelength detection with advanced algorithms analyze the unique signatures for each type of fire and nuisance source in a 3D space, enabling the protector to accurately distinguish between real fires and nuisance alarm sources.

The SelfVerify® system function provides a calibrated and automatic self-test every 24 hours. It tests the signal path to the system panel, alarm devices and output units. In this way, the self-test ensures that the protector is able to initiate an alarm when it should, and at the correct sensitivity level according to EN 54 part 5 and 7 throughout its lifetime. Additionally, an advanced Pulse Response Signal analysis is run every other second, verifying 100 % of the components in the signal path and 99 % of the components in the protector.

Cover Detection
As an add-on feature, AutroGuard® provides Cover Detection. We use infrared light to detect if the protector is covered by a dust cap or any other object, and a fault message will appear. The feature can be turned off during maintenance.

Integrated sounder and white Visual Alarm Device (VAD)
AutroGuard® can be delivered with an integrated EN 54-3 approved sounder. (optional). Sound patterns and sound levels are configurable, with a maximum output sound output of 93 dBA at 1 m range. (Note that integrated sounder is not available for EX versions). The same variant is delivered with a high efficiency EN 54-23 compliant integrated Visual Alarm Device (VAD). The VAD is in white color, and is configurable to 4 different intensities. The flash rate is configurable (1 or 2 sec.) (Note that integrated VAD is not available for Ex versions).
