A clear choice for reliable and accurate electrical inspection
26 June 2012
With the launch of its new Platinum Series transparent infrared inspection windows IRISS poses a question: why choose a traditional, limited life fluoride crystal window that could shatter when there is now a superior - and clear - polymer alternative that is impact resistant and which carries an unlimited lifetime warranty?
IRISS developed the first and only industrial grade infrared window, a technology that is now patented. The introduction of the Platinum Series is the result of continuous development of the original concept and in response to customer requests. The company is running a special offer on the new windows until end July - click here for more information.
The capabilities of this IR window are made possible by the new IRISS Poly-View System patented clear polymer, removing the only benefit that a crystal window could claim over the originally opaque IRISS alternative – visual inspection.
Platinum exceeds industry standards as the only IR window suitable for electrical inspection in the UV, visual and all three infrared spectrums. A fixed and stable transmission rate is assured for accurate quantitative and qualitative analysis. It helps companies comply with NFPA 70E electrical safety standards and is fully certified and tested to UL, IEE, IP65/NEMA 4, Lloyds of London and the American Bureau of Shipping standards.
By comparison with Platinum, a crystal window carries the significant risk of breakage, especially in the presence of vibration. Even an electrician slamming an enclosure door can cause a crystal window to shatter. This presents manufacturers, particularly those in the food and pharmaceutical sectors, with a problem.
Platinum, on the other hand, has an unconditional lifetime warranty against breakage. It is reinforced by an aluminium honeycomb grill and is not degraded by acids, alkalis, UV, moisture, humidity, vibration or high frequency noise.
Process critical electrical components can be easily monitored by the thermographer without any danger of being exposed to energized equipment. Moreover, Platinum eliminates the need for PPE, saving significant costs.
The IRISS Platinum Series is available in both round and rectangular window shapes with customisable features such as housing materials, gaskets, covers, locking devices, private labelling and colour. In addition, custom solutions with Poly-View System technology can be configured to virtually any shape or size – a capability that is not achievable with crystal technology.
