FlexIR-Clear Series

A Clear Solution to an Everyday Problem

The FlexIR-Clear range of products is another innovative addition to the custom solutions from IRISS to ensure that your inspection windows meet your needs and assist in your Reliability Program. One of the most difficult things to overcome in infrared inspections of electrical systems is imaging through the clear polycarbonate safety guards that are typically installed in front of electrical connections and which completely block the transmission of infrared radiation. These guards maintain the IP20 touch-safe requirement by ensuring that no one can accidentally touch the energized components when the panel cover is removed. The FlexIR-Clear range of products is a clear polycarbonate grill that is IP20 compliant and allows direct temperature measurement of energized components for infrared and visual inspections while ensuring the operators cannot come in contact with the energized components.

Overcome Viewing Obstacles

The FlexIR-Clear series a offers a far superior field of view the thermographer the ability to have infinite viewing angles inside the switchgear.

Durable and Rugged

The FlexIR-Clear’s Makrolon® construction is better suited to resist the mechanical stresses applied to polycarbonate guards fitted to electrical distribution equipment

Meet Your Needs

The FlexIR-Clear is available in custom sizes allowing inspections to be competed on those unique applications without the increased risk associated with removing covers or guards

Durable and Rugged

Polymer based IR windows are far more able to resist the mechanical stresses applied to IR window that are fitted to electrical distribution equipment. It was IRISS that first came to market with industrial grade IR windows that could meet the mandatory impact and load testing requirements of UL, CSA, IEEE, IEC, CE testing that could never be passed by any crystal based IR window.
