An Infrared Inspection Window is a window that is used to separate environments of differing pressures or temperatures while allowing light energy at a specified electromagnetic wavelength to pass between the two environments. IR Windows are also called viewports or viewing panes and must meet the strength and environmental requirements for the type of equipment in which they are fitted. The Windows must also be compatible with the infrared equipment being used. The Windows can be various shapes and sizes (square, round, rectangular or custom). IR Windows are an inspection point that is designed to allow infrared radiation to transmit to the outside environment so that a data point can be recorded using a thermal camera. Infrared inspection windows permit a safe and permanent viewing access into energised electrical equipment without disrupting operations.
You might be wondering what infrared window testing enables? When you choose Geo Therm Ltd for Infrared Window Testing there are a number of things our surveys can show, including;
IR Windows are one example of an Electrical Maintenance Safety Device [EMSD] that allows safe access for a thermographer to inspect energized electrical equipment. A previous article discussed EMSDs and why they are important in today’s environment.
Specifically developed for infrared and visual inspections, we sell, fit and utilise Fluke, CorDEX, LumaSense (formally Mikron) and IRISS infrared windows. The units are typically made of a steel or an aluminium ring with a transparent crystal lens. Installation allows hot-spot capture whilst maintaining enclosure rating. Infrared inspection windows are easily fitted into many types of electrical equipment such as switchboards, switchgear, transformers, MCC’s and generator housings. The benefits include:
Due to the nature of electrical switchgear, 90% of components that an electrician or thermographer wants to inspect are normally locked behind bolted panel covers, cabinet doors with switched interlocks, making it dangerous to safely remove and routinely inspect live switchgear during live PM assessments.
Safe working practices outlined in NFPA 70E have led to the development of retro-fitting infrared windows, which are now an approved method for live visual and infrared inspections. Geo Therm Ltd will provide the correct IR window, install it and provide an IR inspection for your electrical equipment needs.
As a professional and recognised leading infrared window survey company, we have an outstanding track record of delivering the highest quality inspections locally and worldwide.
