DERRY, N.H., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Fireye InSight II is the first
Primary Safety Control to be certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a
leading global independent safety science company, to Safety Integrity Level 3
(SIL3), providing customers with assurance that its products meet a high level
of safety. Fireye is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of
United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The InSight II scanners, currently installed in power plants and refineries
around the world, offer a host of technical features applicable to industrial
and utility fuel burners. The InSight II flame scanner determines a target
flame from other flames or hot background that may be present in the
combustion chamber. If the target flame goes out, the InSight II sends a
signal to the burner management system to close that fuel valve to prevent
unburned fuel from entering the boiler, eliminating the potential for an
explosion.

UL SIL certification uses extensive safety research, scientific expertise and
uncompromising focus on quality to evaluate a sample of the product and
determine if it complies with the safety requirements of a published
functional safety standard. The certification provides end users with a clear
and trusted understanding of the safety around using the product in their
overall systems.
