Electricity is essential for the operation and success of commercial buildings. Ease of Retrofit installation is equally important to green field construction and IRISS offers energy efficient and cost-saving solutions applicable for both scenarios. Electrical safety compliance for commercial electrical workers is a maze of regulations and challenges. The IRISS family of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) includes industrial-grade infrared (IR) windows that are capable of meeting OSHA’s and NFPA’s standards for arc flash safety. All IRISS IR windows are compatible with all brands of thermal imaging cameras commonly used in the commercial sector to identify electrical and mechanical fault.
High Rise Residential & Office Buildings
As our cities populations grow, we increasingly rely on high density residential and office space development. These buildings have complex electrical infrastructure to support our ever-growing power needs in the internet age. At a minimum, annual infrared inspections should be performed on the distribution equipment and can be done much safer and faster using EMSDs.
Warehouses and Distribution Centers keep the goods that make up our economy flowing. Environmental conditions must be maintained to ensure perishable products do not spoil and a short power problem could be disastrous.
Big Box Retail
Home Improvement, Furniture and Appliance retailers, Department and Grocery stores have all implemented IRISS EMSD solutions. Our custom replacement panel solutions can make maintenance inspections faster and safer on panelboards and packaged substations.
3PL and courier package sorting facilities are highly automated and rely on a robust electrical infrastructure. Regular CBM using EMSD is an excellent way to enhance system reliability.
The IRISS Difference
Unparalleled Field of View (FOV)
The large format IRISS CAP series windows and custom infrared windows have a far superior field of view. The CAP-ENV 24 series has over 12 times the FOV of a 4-inch diameter round window which gives the thermographer infinite viewing angels inside the switchgear through one IR window. Reducing the number of infrared windows needed typically reduces procurement and installation cost by over 50%.
Fixed & Stable Transmission
Our polymer IR window systems 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. The lifetime warranty of IRISS EMSD products are ideal for any building application.
Delta T Case Study 6A multi-tenant 37 story commercial office building in Jersey City, NJ
This proactive client wanted to monitor the electrical panels and disconnects throughout his facility daily versus annually. Delta T Alert's installed on all critical enclosures within the facility. The Delta T unites were programmed to record temperature rise within the enclosures two times a day. This data was transmitted wirelessly to the Chief Engineer's computer for analysis and trending. On October 6, 2010, forty-four Delta T Alert units were installed within this facility and programmed to transmit data to the Chief Engineer's computer at 10am and 3:00pm on a daily basis. During the last few months, the 30th Floor Electrical CLoset showed that the operating status varied between "OK", "Elevated" and "Critical" on numerous occasions.
