CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

“Who says Infrared windows must be round?” said Martin Robinson, CEO of IRISS, Inc. “For years, industry has been restricted to round windows. IRISS Custom Application Products (CAP) are revolutionizing the infrared window industry. The polymer lens material allows us to manufacture the custom windows our customers need in virtually any shape or size. This means that for applications where the round IR window is not suitable, customers now have a real solution that works!”

IRISS, Inc. is known worldwide for producing the innovative VPFR round windows that are the world’s only industrial-grade Infrared window. “In the past, the round, infrared windows were typically no larger than 4 inches. Now, we manufacture a custom solution for assets that do not lend themselves to the traditional round windows; either because they do not give complete coverage or because so many windows were required that it quickly becomes cost prohibitive.  Often, IRISS can take a panel, machine guard, or cowling and use it as a template to manufacture not only an Infrared (IR) viewing pane, but also an optical viewing pane. Because we use a polymer, the possibilities are endless. IRISS CAP products are available in many shapes to fit the requirements found in the field; square, rectangle, triangle - any shape.  IRISS designs, engineers and manufactures to the customer’s specifications” said Arby Dickert with IRISS, Inc.

As a Level III thermographer, innovator and pioneer in the field of maintenance technology and Infrared Thermography, Martin Robinson designed the CAP product to meet the individual needs of the clients’ assets.  Mr. Robinson has met with, consulted, or advised international maintenance and reliability leaders on electrical preventive maintenance (PM) and electrical safety standards of NFPA and OSHA. A recognized authority in the field of Infrared Thermography (IR), Martin Robinson has designed Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) programs to include IR, Non-destructive Testing (NDT), as well as the implementation of green energy initiatives and energy management strategies. Based on over 17 years of practical experience, Mr. Robinson recognized the need for industrial-grade infrared windows with the design flexibility necessary to provide for the diversity of assets found in different facilities and applications.  To obtain additional information about IRISS, Inc. and to learn more about infrared thermography technology and the use of infrared windows, download a free copy of “10 Things You Need To Know About Infrared Windows” at or contact Arby Dickert.
