For Round IR Window Inspections
A standard and systematic approach to data collection is essential to establishing a repeatable and reproducible condition based monitoring program. VP-12-US standardizes the location and method for accessing consistent and quality acoustic data regardless of the ultrasound technician’s experience or enclosure rating. Easily identify potentially hazardous faults such as arcing, tracking and corona in electrical distribution systems and switchgear through the VP-12-US. NEMA rated enclosures require only access through the port where technicians can safely collect data on energized equipment in accordance with NFPA 70E safety mandates. The grill allows ultrasound but prevents objects being pushed into the panel.
Ensure Accurate Ultra Sound Inspections
Traditionally an inspector is left to trace the seams around the panels of the assets and change their positioning of the airborne module when something is heard to try and see if they can a higher intensity of the emission and can’t always achieve the Critical Angle due to diffraction of the sound wave and makes it tough recording the truest sound of the anomaly. The VP-12-US helps to insure the truest form of the emission can be record with minimal Diffraction and are more effective than scanning the seam on enclosed systems and for hermetically sealed cabinets.
Environmentally Sealed Design
The VP-12-US 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.

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.
