"Ok team, the long weekend is almost upon us - time for annual electrical switchgear shutdown and maintenance," said John, the Maintenance Manager.
Growing up in a large family in the 1970's, we had a single small (like 22") color TV that we would huddle around in our living room. Inevitably, someone would get up during a program we were all watching intently and block someone else's view. Often, it was the person trying to adjust the antenna for better reception that would be met with the typical smart aleck comment, "Hey, you make a better door than a window."
Although not confirmed by the airline itself, there are multiple reports circulating that the root cause of Delta Airlines problems a couple weeks ago seems to have been caused by a fire in their Data Center. More than 2100 Delta flights around the world were cancelled and thousands more were delayed. Delays and cancellations continued three full days after the event.

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.
This is a 10 part series on the "10 Things You Need to Know About Infrared Inspection Windows."
Part 1 will give you a detailed outline on exactly "What is an Infrared Inspection Window?" and what is the purpose of Infrared Inspection Windows.

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.
