The TTX series is a Multi-Inspection Panel that combines a large format infrared (IR) window, with a visual inspection window and (optional) ultrasound ports.
The innovative design allows technicians to take IR and ultrasound scans while performing a visual inspection or taking digital photos through the same inspection panel while de-risking their predictive maintenance work process.
Does your facility have equipment with voltage or incident energy ratings that are now declared “off limits” by your Electrical Safety Program? How do technicians inspect equipment that must be kept closed or is protected by switched interlocks? Turtle Tough Large-Format Inspection Panels provides safe access to “inaccessible” energized equipment.
OSHA, NFPA 70E, CSA Z462 and similar electrical safety mandates do not require additional PPE when equipment remains closed and in “Normal Operating Condition.” Closed-panel inspection methods, like those made possible with XDP Series Large-Format Inspection Windows, are an easy way to comply with evolving mandates.
Performing inspections through an IR window or visual inspection window eliminates inherently high-risk tasks, such as removing panels or opening hinged doors. The resulting work task is safer for personnel, plant assets and processes. Routine inspections can now be performed while energized equipment is kept closed, and in “normal operating condition” in compliance with electrical safety standards and mandates.
Using inspection windows eliminates the need for constant dressing up and down in PPE, and it eliminates the need to tie up highly-skilled personnel to needlessly open and close equipment. Simply put: it’s a vastly more efficient use of man-hours. In addition to the obvious safety benefits, time studies have demonstrated that using inspection windows can also reduce inspection costs by 75% to 95%.
The TTX is built to outlive your enclosure. You have to see it to believe it.
The panel is fabricated from 12 gauge stainless steel and the cover from 16 gauge stainless steel. When it comes to durability and brute strength, Turtle Tough is without peers.
Because using inspection windows does not increase the risk of electrical hazards, inspections can be performed during peak load, when data collection is ideal, without worry of accidental process interruption.
