January 7, 2014 – Iriss is now offering a combination infrared (IR) window/ultrasound port product, the CAP-4-US, to help companies detect electrical faults before running into failure, it says.
“As a mission-critical resource, electrical assets must be continually monitored to prevent failure which can cost companies thousands to millions of dollars in loss due to damaged equipment from arc flash or electrical fire, production downtime, personnel injury, and so on,” says Martin Robinson, CEO of Iriss. Early on, these electrical faults can produce noise that is detectable in the 40KHz frequency range of ultrasonic data collectors, adds the company. The product is available with transparent or opaque polymer to comply with impact, load and flammability requirements.
