Partial Discharge Sensor Port
Partial Discharge Sensor Ports (PDS) are used in conjunction with a handheld Ultrasound measurement device, allowing the end user to take closed panel Ultrasound decibel readings and listen to the audible signals coming from a piece of equipment. In this way, problems like Arcing, Tracking and Corona can be detected without the need for maintenance personnel to wear PPE. The PDS is a small square plate with no cover with IP10 (NEMA1) rating and has a 3.5mm female adapter for connection to a handheld ultrasound. Note that a special adapter cable may be required depending on the brand and model of handheld being used. Adapter cables for SONUS-XT and SONUS-PD are available from IRISS.

Quickly and Safely perform closed panel airborne Ultrasound inspections of electrical equipment including Switchgear, Switchboards, Panelboards, Transformers, Motor Control Centers and Process Equipment Panels. Through the PDS’ embedded 40KHz Airborne Ultrasonic Ceramic Transducer with 3.5mm jack socket compatible with IRISS PD and TEV testing devices such as the Sonus XT & Sonus PD to detect early warning signs such as Arcing, Tracking, Corona and Partial Discharge.

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
