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 VPDS was successfully tested to the IEC 62271-200 standard for arc containment on metal enclosed switchgear assemblies. In addition, the VPDS has 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.

Durable and Rugged

Polymer based IR ports are far more able to resist the mechanical stresses applied to IR ports that are fitted to electrical distribution equipment. It was IRISS that first came to market with industrial grade IR ports 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 port.

Reinforced Environmentally Sealed Design

The VPDS products are constructed from switchgear grade Nylon plastic with an aluminum cover and stainless steel mounting screws. Seamless custom gaskets ensure the NEMA4 / IP65 ingress protection rating is maintained.

Features

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
