For Round IR Window Inspections
The VP-12-IR’s 12mm viewing area was designed for tight areas or for use with infrared (IR) cameras with smaller, wider angle lens systems. While the VP-12-IR is small in size, it is still big on features. The polymer lens material and switchgear grade plastics assures compliance by maintaining an IP65/NEMA 4 seal whether open or closed. With the smaller footprint of the VP-12-IR, it could be the answer for providing a thermographer access to more challenging areas. This will allow monitoring of equipment that would not have been possible with a larger window. The durability, flexibility and proven transmission stability of IRISS polymer IR windows continues with the VP-12-IR.
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.
Any Camera - Any Task
The exclusive industrial-grade, reinforced polymer optic allows any thermographic camera to monitor completely undisturbed assets inside electrical equipment. The IRISS Polymer optics work with all ranges of Infrared, Ultraviolet and Visual Inspection Cameras.
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.
Environmentally Sealed Design
The VP-12-IR Series of 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.
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.
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.
