Compact, Lightweight, Low Current Consumption
Operates as High-sensitivity UV Sensor Just by Connecting to a UVTRON R9454
Ideal for Fire and Arson Surveillance
The C10423 series is compact power supply and signal processing circuit developed to drive the high-sensitivity UV sensor "UVTRON R9454". By using a double-sided printed circuit board we cut the area
size to half that of conventional drive circuits. Since the high-voltage supply and signal processor are mounted on the same circuit board, the C10423 can be operated as a high-sensitivity UV
sensor just by connecting a UVTRON and supplying a low DC voltage. The signal processing circuit cancels out background discharges which may occur in the UVTRON due to natural excitation light (cosmic rays, solar UV rays, etc.). This minimizes erroneous detection so the C10423 output signal can be used without additional filtering.
Combining the C10423 with a high-sensitivity "UVTRON R9454" (sold separately) for use as a flame detector yields sensitivity capable of de-
tecting the flame from a cigarette lighter (flame length 25 mm) even at distances up to 5 meters away.
