Electrical Equipment Manufacturers

Since the 80s, French regulations have imposed visual inspection of electrical equipment and protective connections to ensured that they are maintained in working order.

Visual inspection is not optimal. Certain anomalies, invisible to the naked eye, remain undetectable. Since they are not treated in advance, they risk causing a fire, stopping production or destroying equipment.

Due to this observation, in the 90s, Wintech Groupe, via its SOREM subsidiary, developed the H.VIR® (High Vision Infrared) infrared window. This is the first infrared optical window in the world invented for thermographic preventive maintenance.

Designed to be easily mounted on the casing of electrical equipment (new or retrofit), the H.VIR® infrared optical window (no life limit) allows for inspection for low and high voltage charges, with no need to interrupt production or pre-inspection.

The H.VIR® IR window complies with current international standards and with the particular specifications of electrical material manufacturers. It is used by the biggest electrical equipment providers in France and abroad, such as Schneider Electric, ABB, Siemens and Hitachi.

Examples of H.VIR® infrared window use by electrical equipment manufacturers:

  • Manufacturing of H.VIR® optical windows, mass-mounted on an assembly line of Schneider Electric SM6 cells Schneider Electric.
  • Manufacturing of H.VIR® optical windows, mass-mounted on an assembly line of HITACHI transformers.
  • Manufacturing of H.VIR® optical windows, mass-mounted on an assembly line of Square D equipment.
