Embedded 40KHz Airborne Ultrasonic Transducer

Embedded 40KHz Airborne Ultrasonic Transducer

Quickly and Safely perform closed panel airborne Ultrasound inspections of electrical equipment including Switchgear, Switchboards, Panelboards, Transformers, Motor Control Centers and Process Equipment Panels. Through the CAP-ENV-PDS’ embedded 40KHz Airborne Ultrasonic Ceramic Transducer with 3.5mm jack socket compatible with IRISS PD and TEV testing devices such as the Sonus XT & Sonus PD to detect early warning signs such as Arcing, Tracking, Corona and Partial Discharge.

Arc Containment Tested

The CAP-ENV PDS Series was successfully tested to the IEC 62271-200 standard for arc containment on metal enclosed switchgear assemblies. In addition, the CAP-ENV Series have been used extensively by OEMs in UL Arc Resistant switchgear designs and have successfully passed every Arc Resistant type test to which they have been subjected.

Unparalleled Field of View

Unlike the round infrared windows the large format IRISS CAP series and custom infrared windows have a far superior field of view. The CAP-ENV-PDS series has over 6 times the FOV of a 4 inch diameter round window which give the thermographer the ability of infinite viewing angles inside the switchgear. Reducing the number of infrared windows needed typically reduces the cost of the installation and product purchases required by over 50%.

Durable and Rugged

Polymer based IR windows are far more able to resist the mechanical stresses applied to IR window that are fitted to electrical distribution equipment. It was IRISS that first came to market with industrial grade IR windows that could meet the mandatory impact and load testing requirements of UL, CSA, IEEE, IEC, CE testing that could never be passed by any crystal based IR window.

Features

Fixed and Stable Transmission

Polymer based infrared windows are unaffected by the environmental and mechanical stresses that degrade the transmission of crystal based IR windows which are fragile and hygroscopic (even when coated). The polymer IR window systems will maintain fixed and stable transmission (FAST) for the life of the installation ensuring that the temperature data collected through the IR window is accurate and reliable for the whole life of the installation.

Customizable

There is no such thing as a standard IR inspection so why should there only be a standard IR Window? IRISS is the only IR window manufacturer with solutions for unique applications. The patented IRISS reinforced optic is flexible and can be manufactured in an infinite number of shapes and sizes ensuring that the CAP-ENV-PDS Series IR window meets your needs and applications.

Tested and Certified to The Highest Industry Standards

IRISS IR windows are the most certified windows in the industry with IEEE (impact & load), UL, cUL, Lloyds, CSA 22.2 14-13 for industrial control equipment. Our marine certifications are Lloyds, DNV and ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) credentials. IRISS IR windows are also arc tested to IEC 62271-200 Arc Flash Spec test 1.1 Second Duration, IEC 60262271-200: 63kA, IEC 60298 Appendix: 63kA, IEEE C37.20.7 Type 2B: 63kA

E Sentry Connect Asset Management

The E Sentry Connect ™ is our next generation intuitive asset information tagging system. The E Sentry Connect system utilizes Near Field Communication (NFC) contactless Smart Card technology that allows smart phone devices with NFC to easily access critical data relating to the equipment being inspected and save up-to-date inspection data directly to the assets E Sentry Connect tag via a free App from IRISS.

Reinforced Environmentally Sealed Design

The CAP-ENV PDS Series of products are constructed from stainless steel with a double thickness welded enclosure door and all stainless steel mounting hardware. Machine formed corners and heavy duty seamless gaskets ensure the highest possible NEMA6 / IP67 ingress protection rating is maintained.

Proudly Made in the United States

IRISS manufactures and assembles all products at our global headquarters located in Bradenton, FL.

Protected by our Unconditional Lifetime Warranty

The IRISS Unconditional lifetime warranty is unique in the IR industry as it not only applies not only to the workmanship of the window housing but also applies to the durability and stability of the optic in the proposed environment. No other manufacturer can offer this because crystal optics will fail over time, and are only able to at best offer a limited lifetime warranty for manufacturing defects.
