Unites the Benefits of Infrared and Ultrasound in One Easy-to-Install Window
Bradenton, FL—December 18, 2013—IRISS, a leader in the permanent electrical safety devices (PESD’s) market, announces the addition of a combination infrared (IR) window ultrasound port product, the CAP-4-US protected by an Unconditional Lifetime Warranty. As their newest innovation, the CAP-4-US enables companies to efficiently detect electrical faults before running into failure.
“As a mission-critical resource, electrical assets must be continually monitored to prevent failure which can cost companies thousands to millions of dollars in loss due to damaged equipment from arc flash or electrical fire, production downtime, personnel injury, and so on,” said CEO, Martin Robinson. “IRISS R&D recognized the industry need for a PESD that leverages a multi-technology approach for electricians to find failure points in critical electrical assets such as transformers and switchgear,” continues Robinson.
Many electrical failures are caused by gradual degradation of equipment such as insulators, switches, and connectors. In many cases, the electricity flow is partially interrupted by the breakdown of the circuit. Early on, these electrical faults can produce noise that is detectable in the 40 KHz frequency range of ultrasonic data collectors, and may also produce heat, depending on the type and severity of fault. The IRISS CAP-4-US makes detecting these electrical faults safer and more efficient.
The IRISS CAP-4-US is available with either transparent or opaque polymer both complying with all mandatory impact, load and flammability requirements. Several major OEMs throughout the United States and Canada are among the first to adopt the IRISS CAP-4-US.
IRISS IR windows allow for safer, more efficient electrical inspections. IRISS is the manufacturer of the world’s first and only, industrial-grade IR windows capable of meeting OSHA’s NFPA 70E requirements for arc flash safety. All of our products are proudly manufactured and assembled in our global headquarters located in Bradenton, FL.
