The Toughest and Most Reliable Infrared and Ultrasound Window
The CAP-ENV-DC features a reinforced, environmentally-sealed, slide-down door design, while also protecting the largest visuallyclear infrared (IR) transmissive viewing area available on the market today. The exclusive reinforced-polymer system allows any thermography camera to monitor completely undisturbed assets inside energized electrical equipment on the visual, UV and shortwave, midwave and longwave IR spectra. The larger rectangular viewing area provides an unparalleled field of view when compared to traditional, round IR windows. Constructed completely from stainless steel, the CAP-ENV-DC series is recommended to protect inspection windows in applications where harsh environmental conditions exist.
An additional layer of protection for both the inspection window and the equipment in environments with harsher conditions.
The CAP-ENV-DC Series was successfully tested to the IEC 62271-200 standard for arc containment on metal enclosed switchgear assemblies.
Having passed rigorous standards and testing, our inspection windows are UL Listed (E491496). This demonstrates our dedication to continued safety and security in the ever-changing world of electrical power and distribution, as well as the quality of products we offer.
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,
IRISS manufactures and assembles all products at our global headquarters located in Bradenton, FL.
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.
Unlike the round infrared windows the large format IRISS CAP series and custom infrared windows have a far superior field of view. The CAP-ENV-DC series has over 6 times the FOV of a 4-inch diameter round window which give the thermographer the ability of infinite viewing angles inside the switchgear. Reducing the number of infrared windows needed typically reduces the cost of the installation and product purchases required by over 50%.
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.
Following a few simple instructions, IRISS inspection windows can be quickly installed on switchgear and MCC panel covers, as well as transformers and other electrical equipment. Each window comes with an installation guide, as well as links to installation videos.
