CAP series data sheet - .PDF file.

Norland Managed Services, which has been contracted by a large blue-chip software company to manage and maintain electrical, mechanical and fire-safety systems at its data centre in Dublin, has included IRISS infrared (IR) windows in the enclosure panels specified for this installation as part of a preventative maintenance programme.

The Dublin data centre hosts cloud-based services for the software company’s clients throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The scope of the contract with Norland includes site-based management and a technical team to provide maintenance and 24-hour emergency response.

Norland opted to use IRISS’s standard Custom Application Product (CAP) 12 windows, which are made from polymer materials.

Key benefits of product application

  • According to Eoin Doherty, Norland’s critical facilities manager, IRISS’s IR windows enable the company to predict failures during thermographic inspection, thereby allowing it to plan maintenance downtime with clients.
  • The CAP 12 windows help Norland and its customer to save time and money while ensuring personnel safety.
  • The 12in-long windows are said to provide the freedom to enable Norland to inspect multiple components.
  • The windows offer advantages including short installation times and low associated costs.
  • The CAP 12 windows allow Norland to perform the regular thermal inspection of three-phase and neutral connections in a busbar connector box; this is an important factor in preventing failure as vibration can often loosen the terminal connections.
  • For Norland and its customer, the potential costs of catastrophic failure and the direct business impact were significantly higher than the capital cost to install the IR windows.
  • Live connections can be seen very clearly on the screen of the thermal-imaging camera — a capability that has already proved useful to the electrical installer when checking the tightness of the installed connections.
