IRISS Unveils Improved Delta T - Wireless Temperature Monitoring

Share Article

A simple device with staggering results, the Delta T Wireless Temperature Monitoring System provides constant monitoring of every electrical enclosure in a facility and enhances all existing electrical maintenance programs.

Delta T Alert ™ is a wireless, self-contained temperature-monitoring sensor that attaches to an electrical enclosure cover. The patented, Delta T Alert™ unit is simple to install and comprises of two temperature sensors. One is to monitor the electrical enclosure’s interior temperatures and the second is to monitor the room’s ambient room temperature where the enclosure is located.

Delta T Alert™ sensors are then configured to collect data on a daily basis, at specific time intervals. The data is transmitted for analysis and trending and warns the operator of abnormal temperature rises within their electrical enclosures well before more serious problems occur. As a result, Delta T Alert™ provides an easier, more effective way to prevent costly electrical damage and system downtime.

The Delta T Alert ™ wireless systems constantly monitor every critical electrical enclosure in a facility and complements existing electrical maintenance programs. The system also offers energy savings by allowing for the timely repair of loose connections that create increased resistance, thus resulting in higher energy costs due to I2R losses. The cost of cleaning and replacing electrical components is low compared to energy savings realized through this form of preventative maintenance.

Delta T Alert ™ bridges the gap between your routine Condition Based Maintenance inspections by effectively tracking your electrical system enclosure temperatures monitoring and reporting critical temperature changes within your electrical enclosures on a daily basis. If a critical issue arises, immediate notification allows for an appropriate corrective action long before costly damage occurs. The system warnings that Delta T Alert ™ provides allow for maintenance technicians to be warned of potential issues causing the elevated internal ambient temperatures. This information and trend data gives maintenance personnel a significant an enormous safety advantage prior to any type of routine maintenance or troubleshooting of possible electrical anomalies within the electrical enclosures.

The Delta T Alert ™ system installation is easy. For permanent installations, simply drill a 9/16” hole in the enclosure and mount the unit tightening the clamp nut provided. If it’s only a temporary installation mount that is required, the Delta T Alert casing also has a permanent magnetic fixing for mounting on ferrous metal enclosures. Each Sensor pairing and configuration can be completed in less than 2 minutes. It’s that easy!

The Delta T Alert System is the latest addition to the IRISS range of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSD’s) which are used in a multitude of industries such as, Power Generation, Manufacturing, Data Centers, Maritime and switchgear OEMs. Living up to their mission, IRISS continuously develops innovative concepts in the EMSD market. By ensuring “Safety through Design” the IRISS’ research and development team are inspiring and revolutionizing EMSD solutions and improving electrical safety around the globe.
