The UV Flame Sensor is a Boolean (yes/no) device. You can program it like a light sensor detecting light or no light. When it is not detecting UV light the output is 1020 Raw.  When it detects UV light it produces a pulse with a value around 550 Raw. The output pulse is 100 milliseconds long. You should read the sensor frequently or you may miss the pulse.
