The RA890F Protectorelay™ Primary Control
is a nonprogramming, amplifying relay that pro-
vides solid state electronic flame safeguard pro-
tection for industrial and commercial gas, oil, or
combination gas-oil burners.
Employs rectification principle of electronic flame
detection using a flame rod, rectifying photocell, or
C7012A,C Ultraviolet Flame Detector.
Clipping pilot link jumper wire permits use with
standing pilots.
Can directly replace RA890E and mount on same
Q270A Subbase.
Solid state circuitry eliminates vacuum tube replace-
ment and increases resistance to vibration. Power
application not required during Off cycle; no tube to
warm up before starting.
Push-to-reset safety switch in dust-resistant enclosure.
Built-in protection against ignition crossover in flame
rod systems.
Does not start if flame-simulating failure occurs in
flame detector circuit.
Automatic safety shutdown if flame fails on start, or
if flame not re-established after flame failure.

Flame Safeguard
Primary Control
Flame signal current is directly measurable at test
jack.
Line or 24 volt, automatic or manual controller can be
used. (Manual controller must open circuit on either
power or flame failure.)
Captive mounting screws allow easy mounting and
removal. Thermoplastic mounting base.
Optional alarm circuit indicates safety shutdown.
