IRISS090 - Inspection image

IRISS product development has always been driven by a multi-technology approach to energised electrical inspection. The company has developed and now supplies a range of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices that allow infrared, ultraviolet, ultrasound and visual inspection of live systems.  Collectively, they not only keep the workplace safe but also improve profitability through greater plant reliability.

In the UK, IRISS has also adopted the same multi-technology approach in its service business.  It has been conducting thermal inspections for UK companies for many years for which it employs a team of highly qualified thermographers using the very best, high resolution infrared cameras to spot the smallest thermal anomalies.  Now IRISS has announced it is underpinning this service with the addition of ultrasound inspection.

Excess heat is generally a good indication that an electrical or mechanical system is not working optimally and the role of infrared is therefore to provide a thermal image of any hotspots.  Arcing, tracking and corona are also signs of potential failure and these are all detectable by ultrasound.

“By offering a combination of the two inspection methods, we have everything covered,” explained David Smith, EMEA Business Development Manager for IRISS. “From our own experience, we know this formula significantly improves predictive maintenance efficiency. It gives our customers every confidence that the utmost has been done to ensure their systems won’t let them down.”


IRISS is the manufacturer of the world’s first and only industrial-grade infrared windows. Their design is based on the 17 years of field experience that the company’s founder, Martin Robinson, gained as a Level III thermographer. And it is this end-user perspective that makes IRISS unique in the industry.

IRISS designs and manufacturers IR (Infrared) windows and safety solutions for electrical assets and provides training for electrical engineers.

IRISS provides its customers with unsurpassed quality at every touch point and focusses on continuously improving infrared (IR) window technology, building reliable products, exceeding customer expectations, whilst remaining a science-based R&D company and protecting their polymer IR windows through the IRISS Unconditional Lifetime Warranty.

IRISS industrial-grade IR windows facilitate safer, more efficient inspections of energized electrical equipment when compared to traditional crystal windows. IRISS award-winning, IR window designs feature a durable transparent polymer lens that allows visual, UV, and short/mid/longwave IR spectrum inspections. And…is available in custom shapes, sizes, and colours to fit the needs of any application.

As solution providers, the team at IRISS brings a multitude of experience from world-class maintenance programs together to meet the individual needs of commercial, industrial, marine, power generation and government maintenance programs.
