IRISS is the only company in the world that can manufacture “UL Listed” replacement covers, panels, and doors with an IR inspection window for all electrical distribution equipment.
Underwriter Laboratories (UL) brings clarity and empowers trust to support responsible product design, production, solutions, and innovations of today and tomorrow. They connect people to safer, more secure, more sustainable products, services, experiences and environments – enabling smarter choices and better lives. Therefore, IRISS, the world leader in Critical Asset Surveillance Technologies, continues to be at the forefront of working with UL to ensure all our Electrical Maintenance Safety products meet their rigorous standards and are either UL-listed or UL-recognized.
In 2016, IRISS began working with UL to secure a blanket “UL Listing” on our FlexIR custom replacement panels, which incorporate our patented Inspection window lens systems that allow for infrared, visual, and ultraviolet inspection to be completed in all closed panel scenarios. This was an important step as all standard IR windows available today are only UL-recognized components and, as such, have certain limitations.
IRISS is proud to announce that we have now secured our UL Listing approval and can now offer our FlexIR custom replacement panels and inspection windows under blanket listing E491496 as Environmental-rated Accessories for Enclosures. What this means is that IRISS is the ONLY company in the world that can currently manufacture “UL Listed” replacement covers, panels and doors with an IR inspection window for all your electrical distribution equipment, including but not limited to transformers, panelboards, switchboards, load centers, switchgear, motor terminal chambers, busway joints, inverters, speed drives and UPS Systems.
IRISS FlexIR Custom replacement panels and inspection windows provide two distinct advantages:
IRISS has a library of FlexIR custom panel designs already available for many OEM products, and we have the capability to design solutions rapidly using our 3D scanning and advanced manufacturing capabilities. Now that FlexIR replacement panels are also UL-listed, there really are no electrical assets for which you cannot implement a safer, more efficient way to perform your condition-based maintenance inspections.
We are very excited about receiving the blanket UL Listing for our custom products. IRISS is committed to ensuring that arc flash and electrocution risks to maintenance personnel are minimized while maintaining the design integrity of OEM equipment.
