Infrared Inspection Window Lens Materials

Posted by Michelle Detweiler on 8/19/16 1:19 PM

Welcome back!  This is part 2 of a 10 part series on the "10 Things You Need to Know About Infrared Inspection Windows." You may not have considered that the optic material used in IR Windows is a particularly important component of the product.  The optic is actually the most important piece of the IR Inspection Window. Being new to this industry, I have learned a lot in the last 6 months about Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices.  I would have never thought that careful consideration must be given to the material used depending on the infrared window application. This webinar that Martin Robinson, CEO of IRISS has created will illustrate just how important it is to know the materials available in your IR Inspection Windows.

Important Safety Standards For Every Infrared Window Application

Posted by Martin Robinson on 6/14/16 2:55 PM

 

Martin Robinson, CEO of IRISS and developer of the IR Polymer Window explains the importance and necessity of IR Window certifications. The minimum requirements necessary for certifying a product to UL standards are usually sufficient to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the product; is that statement true or false? Well, in the case of an infrared (IR) window this is not necessarily true as specific application details must be factored in before its use can be deemed ‘safe’.

UL is a US based, Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) and worldwide safety consulting and certification company that performs safety testing. UL is the only organization to have a defining standard for infrared windows called UL50V. These devices are basically data collection ports for infrared inspection by thermal imaging camera that are designed to allow electrical inspections to be conducted with the utmost safety when the system is under load. They ensure the electrical enclosure remains in a ‘safe and guarded condition’ so the risk of arc flash or electrocution injury is eliminated.

Spot “Vs” Area Temperature Measurement using IR Cameras

Posted by Martin Robinson on 12/17/15 10:28 AM

Over the years I have been involved in the infrared industry I have seen some mistakes made and problems missed using spot temperature measurements on IR cameras, luckily these were rectified using the IR software when the reports were written… (would not have been the case had we been using “report by exception” techniques!).
