IRISS Blows Away the Competition with the New CAP-ENV

Posted by Martin Robinson on 7/13/15 3:07 PM

IRISS recently announced impressive testing results stemming from three of their products, the VPT and two of their new CAP-ENV IR Windows. (read the press release here)

IRISS’ VPT-100, CAP-ENV-6 and CAP-ENV-12 went under intense testing. The Arc flash test was performed in Poland, and the results were just down right impressive, the IR Windows were Arc Flash tested in line with the requirements of IEC62271-200 (1KV -50KV metal enclosed switchgear) at 6KV, 31.7kA, for 1.1 seconds, (was twice as long as standard tests).  All the IRISS products successfully passed this extreme test.

Unlike Crystal Based IR windows the IRISS VPT and CAP-ENV Systems are the only visual and IR windows that are Impact resistant, maintain a fixed and stable IR transmission and offer the largest FOV (field of view) of any IR window available today.  The IRISS’ VPT and CAP-ENV Series are by far the strongest most durable IR Window systems available on the market today.

IRISS Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices are used in a multitude of industries such as, Power Generation, Manufacturing, Data Centers, Maritime and switchgear OEMs.  IRISS is continuously improving infrared window systems and developing innovative concepts in the electrical maintenance safety device market.  This has led to the creation of the CAP-ENV System, an innovative industrial IR window that could withstand harsh environmental conditions, offering a durable transparent polymer lens that allows visual, UV, and infrared IR inspections to be completed whilst the panel remains in an enclosed and guarded condition.  More information can be found at www.iriss.com/cap-env.
