RFD-2000X detects the UV radiation emitted at the instant of ignition. It is capable of detecting fires and explosions within 3–4 milliseconds and a time delay of 2 -3 seconds are included to minimize false alarms which can be triggered by other UV sources such as lightning, arc welding, radiation, and sunlight.

Infrared flame detectors monitor the infrared spectral band for specific patterns given off by hot gases. These are sensed using a specialized fire-fighting thermographic camera. A single-frequency IR flame detector is typically sensitive to wavelengths around 4.4 micrometers, which is a spectral characteristic peak of hot carbon dioxide as is produced in a fire. The usual response time of an IR detector is 3-5 seconds.

RFD-2000X are sensitive to both UV and IR wavelengths and detect flame by comparing the threshold signal of both ranges. This helps minimize false alarms.
