Overview

The VP-12-IR’s 12mm viewing area was designed for tight areas or for use with infrared (IR) cameras with smaller, wider angle lens systems. While the VP-12-IR is small in size, it is still big on features. The polymer lens material and switchgear grade plastics assures compliance by maintaining an IP65/NEMA 4 seal whether open or closed. With the smaller footprint of the VP-12-IR, it could be the answer for providing a thermographer access to more challenging areas. This will allow monitoring of equipment that would not have been possible with a larger window. The durability, flexibility and proven transmission stability of IRISS polymer IR windows continues with the VP-12-IR.

Fixed and Stable Transmission

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.

UL Listed

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.

Fast and Easy 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.

Features

Tested and Certified

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,

Proudly Made in the United States

IRISS manufactures and assembles all products at our global headquarters located in Bradenton, FL.

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

Environmentally Sealed Design

The VP-12-IR 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.
