The Delta T Alert System from IRISS provides you with a quality solution to monitor your assets health and manage their reliability. Sensors are wireless, self-contained temperature and humidity sensors that attach to your electrical enclosures. Our patented designs contain two sensors…one to monitor the interior temperature of the enclosure and the second to monitor the room’s ambient temperature.
These Sensors are configured to collect data at preset intervals and transmit to the Delta T Gateway, which in turn, transmits to the Delta T software for analysis and trending. Through this software, various temperature thresholds can be set in different locations to monitor the asset health and detect if there is an unacceptable increase. The maintenance team can then go to that specific asset and, through an inspection window, perform a visual, infrared, and ultrasound inspection to determine if a scheduled shut down for repair is necessary.
Not only does this increase the reliability of your critical electrical assets, but the efficiency and safety of your maintenance program as well.
The global economy continues to rely more and more on data centers, as over recent years a great deal of infrastructure has shifted from in-house, mainframe servers to virtual networks supporting activity through communication across multiple locations and public/private cloud services. Locations require a significant system of electrical hardware – including power substations, uninterruptible power supplies, ventilation & cooling systems, and backup generators.
Electrical equipment requires periodic maintenance to continue to operate as
designed, and it is well understood that this maintenance saves money in the long run.
Unfortunately, the implementation of effective maintenance schedules can be costly and
lead to wasteful downtime. Companies often stretch or push out maintenance schedules,
put off equipment inspection or conduct less thorough inspections. These cost-cutting
measures can have serious implications for the effectiveness of the maintenance. There
is an inverse correlation between failures and inspection/maintenance frequency, with
fewer inspections/maintenance leading to more unexpected electrical equipment failures.
Furthermore, rushing the disassembly of equipment for inspection and maintenance in
order to minimize downtime leads to increased risk and incidences of injuries and fatalities
as well as maintenance induced failures
