STANSTED Airport is using thermal imaging technology designed and manufactured in Essex as part of a programme to streamline safety checks of its electrical systems.
Chelmsford-based IRISS, clinched a deal with the airport to construct and install 72 custom-made infrared windows which allow engineers to complete more efficient safety inspections of the fuses that feed terminal systems, such as computers and baggage belts.
IRISS infrared windows are unique in the market, being made of polymer instead of crystal. They are shatterproof and can be manufactured in any shape or size.
David Potter, Stansted Airport’s engineering compliance manager, who spearheaded the project, said: “Previously, the entire inspection cycle was a very long process and took engineers two nights to shut down the system and inspect just one electrical panel by hand.
“With the installation of IRISS infrared inspection windows and the help of a thermal imaging camera we can carry out checks of all the panels in just five hours, making huge savings in survey times and equipment costs.

“The windows are really well constructed and the overall service from IRISS was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and their engineers were extremely professional.”
David Hinds, regional sales manager at IRISS, added: “We are extremely proud to have worked in partnership with London Stansted on this project. The installation of our windows will ensure the safety of their engineering personnel and efficient running of their electrical systems.”
