Overview Image

Overview

A standard and systematic approach to data collection is essential to establishing a repeatable and reproducible condition-based monitoring program. VP-12-US standardizes the location and method for accessing consistent and quality acoustic data regardless of the ultrasound technician’s experience or enclosure rating. Easily identify potentially hazardous faults such as arcing, tracking and corona in electrical distribution systems and switchgear through the VP-12-US. NEMA rated enclosures require only access through the port where technicians can safely collect data on energized equipment in accordance with NFPA 70E safety mandates. The grill allows ultrasound but prevents objects being pushed into the panel.

Arc Safety Tested

Successfully tested to the IEC 62271-200 standard for arc containment on metal enclosed switchgear assemblies to help protect workers from injury/fatality. The preferred choice for OEMs in UL-listed arc resistant switchgear, our patented window design brings higher levels of both safety and reliability.

Safely Perform Ultrasound Inspections

Quickly and Safely perform closed panel airborne Ultrasound inspections through the VP-12-US of electrical equipment including Switchgear, Switchboards, Panelboards, Transformers, Motor Control Centers and Process Equipment Panels. The VP-12-US Ultrasound Inspection Port is 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.

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.

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

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.

Environmentally Sealed Design

The VP-12-US 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.
