XVW Viewing Windows - Safer Visual Inspections


XVW WindowOpening energized electrical equipment is forbidden, with few exceptions, by electrical safety standards like NFPA 70E and CSA Z462. When open-panel work is permitted, workers must utilize restrictive work practices and PPE.

Exiscan™ XV series inspection windows are an easy way to enable closed-panel visual access in compliance with the standards.

The resulting work process is far safer, more efficient and de-risked.

Use Exiscan™ Visual Inspection Windows to allow operators, electricians and engineers the ability to:


  • Inspect for indications of equipment conditions
  • View critical meters or indicators
  • Take digital images of components for work orders
  • Verify full disengagement of blades when deenergizing


Establishing an Electrically Safe Work Condition
One of the steps to "achieving an electrically safe work condition," per NFPA 70E-2012 Article 120.1(3), states: “whenever possible, visually verify that all blades of the disconnecting devices are fully open…” A similar clause appears in the Canadian CSA Z462 standard. The Exiscan™ XV Inspection Windows provide visibility to workers to perform such a check prior to opening equipment.
