Spectrum VIR VI Tuning Software
The Scanner Tuning Environment is a comprehensive
software tool designed specifically for tuning the Spectrum VIR
VI Flame Scanner. This graphics based program allows the user to
view and analyze the relevant flame signals. Using the software
tools, the user can easily define a set of parameters to achieve
discrimination between acceptable and unacceptable flame patterns.
An integral part of the Spectrum VIR VI Flame Scanner
detection algorithms is a unique Rule Interpreter. This Interpreter
executes a list of easy to understand equations, called Rules in
STE terminology. These rules are created by the user with the rule
building tools embedded within the tuning software. To aid in Rule
design the STE provides the following components:
View the real time flame spectrum to see what the flame envelope
actually looks like and, more importantly, view the differences
between flame conditions caused by load changes or fuel variations.
Instruct the Scanner to learn the characteristics, or Profiles,
of a burner flame under varied operating conditions.
Write the Rules to describe the conditions that must be present
in order to establish the required Confidence level which will
enable the FLAME ON output relays of the Scanner Module.
Display the current flame spectrum to that of previously learned
- Modify Reconfigure the parameters
in the Scanner to suit changing conditions, and re-learn Profiles.
View all flame level intensities and contact states with a pictorial
representation of the Scanners, shown in the same matrix as the
burner configuration on the boiler.
Record operating conditions to disk, including the power spectrum,
for later viewing and analysis.
