Mikron Infrared: Viewport
April 11, 2005
Mikron Infrared's patented Viewport is the first UL-approved device to allow closed-door infrared inspections of electrical panels. Matched with Mikron's SpyGlass(TM) fisheye lens, it allows an inspector to scan a panel by looking through a single port's tiny 0.62-in. opening. Designed to make frequent inspections more convenient, the Viewport enables a thermographer to work without the help of an electrician or safety barricading, and with minimal personal protective equipment. The Viewport is also excellent for use with ultrasound detection equipment. Thermal scans through the Viewport are highly accurate, because the unique open design needs no IR-transparent window or metal screen that can skew readings by the IR camera. UL-approved for installation on NEMA type 1, 2, 3, 3R, 4, 5, 12, 12K and 13 enclosures, the Viewport is ideal for OEM use or retrofit in the field.
