FlameGard® 5 Test Lamp

The FlameGard® 5 Test Lamp is a battery operated, rechargeable test lamp specifically designed to test MSA’s FlameGard® 5 MSIR, UV/IR, and UV/IR-H2 Flame Detectors. The test lamp provides a high-energy, broadband radiation source that emits sufficient energy in both the ultraviolet and infrared spectra to activate UV and/or IR flame detectors. To simulate a fire, the test lamp automatically flashes at various selectable rates.

The FlameGard® 5 Test Lamp is designed for use in Class I, Divisions 1 & 2, Groups C and D areas. The test lamp runs on internal nickel-metal hydride batteries which, when fully charged, allow continuous operation for at least 45 minutes. An internal circuit prevents operation when the battery charge is low.

A variety of flashing test patterns, selectable through a rotary switch, allows the test lamp to check the operation of FlameGard® 5 Flame Detectors. When the specific flashing pattern for a given type of flame detector is appropriately selected, the test lamp triggers the alarm or test mode.

Features & Benefits:

  • Rechargeable / replaceable battery provides an extended product life
  • Easy grip handle integral with housing is easy to use
  • Battery charger status indicator simplifies maintenance
  • Explosion proof cast aluminium housing or use in Class I, Divisions 1 & 2 locations
