Hamamatsu C10423 UVTRON Drive Circuit

Hamamatsu C10423 UVTRON Drive Circuit. This drive circuit is made to drive a Hamamatsu R9454 Flame Detector. The driver circuit uses little energy (~4 mA typically) and contains all the necessary high voltage electronics, drive circuitry, noise canceling, and signal processing needed when using the detector.

A flame sensor is recommended to be interfaced with the driver circuit.

Operates as high-sensitivity UV sensor (flame detector) when used in conjunction with a UVtron R9454
Can detect an open flame of approximate size 25 mm (1 in) in length at 5 m (16.40 ft)
Accepts a wide range of input voltages from 12 V to 24 V
Internal noise reduction circuitry minimizes false positives
