Paper Abstract

The evolution of photoelectric converter, fiber optics and integrated circuits, in particular optic detectors, increases area of applying of the industrial measuring and control systems that used IR detectors. One of the more important is optic detection of electric arc in industrial energetic arrangements. That kind of detection is sure, easy to apply in existing industrial apparatus a d it is cheaper than another way of detection. Additionally optic detection of electric arc is safety for attendance persons and may work on computer system. The article presents an example of circuit with semiconductor IR photoelectric detector to detection of electric arc and points at the most important questions which should be taken into consideration in designing instruments like described one.
