Canadian Standards Association approve IR Windows mounting hardwareThe Inaccuracies of infrared windows and cameras

Posted on: 9th, January 2015

The use of infrared windows in electrical control and distribution equipment has become increasingly more prevalent over recent years. With increased focus on electrical safety and the widespread adoption by industry of NFPA-70E, infrared systems are becoming increasingly more prominent within the industry.

However, there are problems that we face with adopting infrared windows with thermal imaging cameras, as they hold a serious measurement accuracy issue when it comes to predictive maintenance.

Current thermal imager technologies today can measure, with extreme degrees of accuracy, in the range of ± 5°C or better. However, introducing any type of infrared window into a temperature measurement will interject measurement inaccuracies. These issues affect various infrared window types on non-contact temperature measurement, including those from alternative infrared window types.

After extensive research, we have provided methods for successfully using various thermal imagers along with certain types of infrared windows, combining them within a preventive and predictive maintenance program for a much easier and efficient usage.
