    A clear choice for reliable and accurate electrical inspection(26/06/2012)

    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?

    Infrared windows: the material facts(20/03/2012)

    The adoption of infrared (IR) inspection windows in industrial applications grows exponentially year on year as the increased level of awareness regarding electrical safety and risk reduction drives their acceptance. Rob Miller, Technical Advisor, Iriss Group, reports.

    Infrared windows substantially cut maintenance costs(20/03/2012)

    Whilst there are clearly cost savings to be made by bringing outsourced electrical maintenance services in-house, many companies lack the resource to do so. Thermal imaging is a good case in point.

    Infrared windows don't have to be round(20/01/2012)

    IRISS manufactures the world’s only impact resistant, industrial-grade infrared windows, the View Pane Fixed Reinforced (VPFR) Series. This in itself is of huge benefit to those surveying critical electrical systems. They save time and money without compromising safety. But the benefits don’t stop there. The transmissive polymer lens material used in the patented VPFR infrared windows can be cut to virtually any shape or size and this opens up a whole new area of application potential.

  • The low-down on standards for IR windows(12/12/2011)

    Establishing which standards and certifications are appropriate for your application of infrared (IR) windows can be quite a minefield but IRISS is here to help. In the latest chapter of its practical guide, it steers you through the myriad of design and safety regulations such as UL, ULC, IEEE, CSA and others.

    Infrared windows - an installer's guide(29/11/2011)

    Chapter six of ‘The Power of Knowing’ covers all the dos and don’ts of installing infrared windows. It starts with a pre-installation check list and takes you through target identification, emissivity standardisation, things to consider during the installation process, identification labelling and the importance of benchmark inspection to set the base line.

  • Inspection windows conform to more standards, widening scope of use(11/11/2011)

    IRISS, the manufacturer of the world’s only industrial-grade infrared windows capable of meeting durability and impact requirements, confirms compliance with new standards ratings on three product ranges. This move widens the scope of these products by providing a choice of certifications to suit the application and to meet customer preference.

  • Infrared windows: the importance of field of view(31/10/2011)

    So, you’re installing infrared windows. How many do you need per panel? And what diameter should they be? In both cases, you need to know the field of view (FOV) of the camera, any lens attachment and the IR window. Chapter five of ‘The Power of Knowing’ is your step-by-step guide.

  • Infrared windows: what are the choices?(24/10/2011)

    An infrared (IR) window is a data collection point for a thermal camera. It is used to separate environments from differing pressures or temperatures whilst allowing energy at a specified electromagnetic wavelength to pass between the two. Julie Reynolds explains their various forms and uses.

  • Know your IR window transmittance(13/10/2011)

    When taking radiometric thermal images it is important to know what variables in the external environment, such as reflection and emissivity, can lead to possible measurement errors. But when thermographers use IR windows, improper window transmission compensation can easily affect apparent temperature and delta T calculations by 30% or more and that must be factored in too. IRISS tells you how to avoid the pitfalls in part four of its Ten Things To Know About IR Windows.

    The importance of emissivity in electrical thermography(30/09/2011)

    Having explored the different lens materials in the second of its series ‘Ten Things To Know About Infrared Windows’, IRISS now turns its attention to emissivity – the relative ability of a material surface to emit energy by radiation. Understanding the importance of properly compensating for the range of different values is critical to the accurate diagnosis of equipment health. And to explain this fully, chapter three delves into the science behind infrared thermography.

  • Your guide to infrared window materials(15/09/2011)

    In this second part of 10 Things You Should Know About Infrared Windows IRISS guides you through the various types of lens materials that can be used. The choice is usually driven by the application, environment, wavelength and cost considerations. We examine the environmental factors, explore the suitability of crystal optics and ask does durability matter. And we also explain the huge design potential of transmissive polymer lens materials.

    IRISS intoduces world's first rectangular IR transmissive windows for electrical panel inspection(13/04/2011)

    Infra red inspection windows, enabling thermographers to measure hot spots in an electrical enclosure without having to open the enclosure door, are usually round in shape and generally less than 10cm in diameter. This restricts coverage and often necessitates the inclusion of several apertures in order to gain full coverage of the enclosure contents. Now, IRISS has launched what it is claiming as a world first - rectangular IR windows - in 6in, 12in and 24in widths.
