As an internationally recognized and government-approved equipment manufacturer, IRISS has supplied electrical maintenance solutions for local, state and federal entities. Power reliability and electrical safety compliance is essential for the success and stability of the government and its various programs. 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 government sector to identify electrical and mechanical faults.
Human life is precious. Our hospitals electrical systems feature redundant electrical sources and backup power (UPS) systems to ensure that power is always flowing to the critical equipment. Regular inspection and maintenance of these assets using EMSDs can increase total system reliability.
State and Federal government agencies operate dedicated data centers that must operate seamlessly 7x24 to service our social infrastructure and security needs. These entities recognize that performing more frequent electrical infrastructure asset inspections using condition based techniques can drive significant improvements in uptime and reliability.
All branches of the military operate bases that are often equivalent to small cities in terms of their population and electrical power needs. Critical to our national defense, these bases can increase their electrical network reliability with CBM and the implementation of EMSDs.
Scientific research, often government sponsored, drives societal progress. An unexpected power interruption can foil an experiment in seconds setting researchers back possibly weeks or even months in their work.
The IRISS Difference
Unparalleled Field of View
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 government application.
OSHA and NFPA 70 Their Implications on Energized Thermography of Electrical Distribution Systems
Electrical accidents happen daily; however, there are important steps that companies and individuals can take to reduce the occurrence of these accidents and protect everybody concerned from the physical, financial, and statutory consequences. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in its regulation 70E, provides a reference for facilities to meet the requirements of electrical workplace safety and its regulation 70B outlines the best practices for setting up and maintaining an Electrical Preventive Maintenance (EPM) program.
