VPFC Series (Viewing Pane Fixed Crystal) IR windows are specially coated to reduce the transmission drift due to moisture/humidity. However, industrial users are strongly encouraged to investigate the VPT Series of industrial-grade IR windows which are specifically designed for stability in harsh industrial environments and have an unconditional lifetime warranty. The transmission rate characteristics of CaF2 are suitable for higher temperature applications, shortwave and midwave thermography and for the visual spectrum. Medium to longwave transmission rates (7-14 micron) are typically between 40-50% based on the infrared (IR) camera detector sensitivities at different wavelengths.
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.
The VPFC 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.
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.
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
