  • Product Info
  • Literature


A self-checking flame detector using a solid state UV sensor to detect ultraviolet radiation in flames for supervision of gas, oil or combination gas-oil burners.


  • Designed for use with 7800 series controls with the R7851C flame amp.
  • Oscillating shutter interrupts ultraviolet radiation reaching the UV sensor to provide the solid state UV sensor checking function.
  • Can be mounted horizontally, vertically or at any angle in between.
  • The detector requires faceplate alignment and has integral locating reference points to assure proper operation of the shutter mechanism.
  • Models available with threaded conduit fitting and color-coded leadwires allow rapid electrical installation.
  • C7961E1022 or E1030 5 pin Brad Harrison type (formally 41307N) mating connector not supplied nor available through Honeywell.
  • Incorporates UV sensor tube checking feature; used with R7851C1008 Dynamic Self-check Amplifiers.
  • Protective heat block built into mounting flange.
  • -40 F (-40 C) rated ultraviolet sensing cell is supplied.
  • C7961E meets NEMA 4 standards with viewing window rated to 20 psi.
  • C7961F has an explosion-proof housing for use in hazardous atmospheres with a viewing window rated to 100 psi.
