July 28, 2006   Mikron Infrared's Safer and Faster Method of Inspecting Electrical Switchgear

Hotspots in electrical cabinets can be quickly pinpointed while circuits are energized and under load, using Mikron’s SpyGlass Lens and economical Viewports.

Raising the safety and convenience standard for thermal inspections, the SpyGlass Lens and Viewports encourage frequent examinations of electrical switchgear because – with cabinet doors closed – no downtime is required to de-energize circuits for safety reasons.

The Viewport is UL-rated and approved for installation at the OEM level or as a retrofit in the field. Suitable for both low-and high-voltage applications from 480 volts and up, it can be installed in 20 minutes or less on cabinets indoors or outdoors, in either vertical or horizontal positions.

The unique design of the Viewport uses only a 0.5” aperture, maintaining the integrity and safety rating of the cabinet, without the need for an IR transparent window or metal screen barrier which can skew thermal readings, or break--compromising safety. The Viewport never needs cleaning or replacement glass, and with the plastic-tipped SpyGlass lens, there is no “path to ground” through the camera, enhancing operator safety. With a focus range of 4” (10 cm) to 45” (114 cm) and large depth of field, the SpyGlass lens reduces the need to re-focus for different electrical cabinet depths.

The SpyGlass lens attaches to any Mikron model 7600-PRO - M7800 - M7500 and it will also work with the 7000 series cameras. Through September 30, 2006, purchase a Mikron 7600PRO camera and get a SpyGlass Lens for only $2500.00 (regular price $6800.00).
