Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) must provide modern technology and solutions from design to operation/maintenance to ensure customer satisfaction, business growth and profitability in our rapidly growing, competitive market. Electrical safety compliance for workers is a maze of regulations. Additionally, electrical assets are affected by temperature extremes, high humidity, continuous vibration and high duty cycles. Customers count on the expertise of OEMs to provide the modern tools and resources available to extend the performance and lifespan of these critical high-value electrical assets. The IRISS family of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) have a long history of protecting the critical assets OEMs produce and include the industrial-grade infrared (IR) windows that are capable of meeting OSHA’s and NFPA’s standards for arc flash safety. All IRISS IR windows are compatible with all brands of thermal imaging cameras commonly used in to identify electrical and mechanical faults.
Product Categories where IRISS products are installed include
Low Voltage Switchgear, Medium Voltage Switchgear, Switchboards, Panelboards, LV Busway joints, LV busway tap boxes, Motor Control Centers, Variable Speed Drives, UPS, Generators, Transformers, Medium Voltage Isophase and non-Segmented busbar systems, and Inverters for wind, solar & energy storage applications
IRISS has standard designs for both indoor and outdoor applications and IRISS products have been widely deployed in low and medium voltage ANSI/NEMA Arc Resistant switchgear as well as IEC Metalclad tested to the IEC 62271-200 requirements.
IRISS custom designed replacement panelboard and switchboard covers are available for a wide variety of OEM offers. Infrared Inspection of these otherwise difficult to access devices can be safe, simple and fast when using IRISS custom designs.
The IRISS Difference
Unparalleled Field of View
The large format IRISS CAP series windows and custom infrared windows have a far superior field of view. The CAP-ENV 24 series has over 12 times the FOV of a 4-inch diameter round window which gives the thermographer infinite viewing angels inside the switchgear through one IR window. Reducing the number of infrared windows needed typically reduces procurement and installation cost by over 50%.
Fixed & Stable Transmission
Our polymer IR window systems maintain fixed and stable transmission (FAST) for the life of the installation ensuring that the temperature data collected through the IR window is accurate and reliable for the whole life of the installation.
