Installed IRISS CAP-CT Flex IR Series Windows in place of failed factory installed plastic viewing windows.

A Power Generation Plant in Florida struggled with inspecting their 18KV 8000 Amp Generator Breaker through the factory installed standard viewing windows. The windows had suffered from degradation due to UV exposure and were no longer visually transparent and therefore made it impossible to inspect the equipment. Steve Watson, Owner of Connect Power, an Electrical Service Contractor located in Brandon Florida, found the right solution for their problem. Steve invited his customer to tour the manufacturing plant of IRISS, a global leader in Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSD's) and designers of the world's first patented industrial- grade IR window solutions.

Steve’s customer saw first-hand the state of the art equipment and manufacturing process that IRISS provides. It was clear that IRISS focuses on continuously improving infrared (IR) window technology, building reliable products, exceeding customer expectations, remaining a science-based R&D company, and protecting the IRISS polymer IR windows through the IRISS Unconditional Lifetime Warranty.

The solution was found. The IRISS IR Window that replaced the failed factory installed windows on the 18KV 8000 Amp Generator Breaker was the CAP-CT Flex IR Series Window. The window was specifically designed to replace the original factory installed windows. These IRISS IR windows now provide the ability to do visual inspections, infrared inspections, and UV inspections if they are looking for corona. The IRISS CAP series of infrared windows are the largest standard sized IR windows available in the marketplace today. The series incorporates a rectangular design available in standard sizes of 4,6,12, and 24 inches and allows for more freedom to inspect multiple components through one infrared window. As in this application, in addition to the standard sizes, custom sizes are available. This Power Generation Plant that was looking for a solution for the replacement of their failed windows can now rest assure that the IRISS windows will last the lifetime of their equipment.
