XVW Window




Why XVW Viewing Windows?

MadeInAmericaCompliance: Install an XVW Visual Inspection Window  so staff can keep the enclosures closed when they:

  • Visually verify that blades are disengaged (for LOTO)
  • Check for evidence of corona, dust ingress, rodents, etc.
  • Read meters or indicators inside control panels


Performing typical visual tasks through a viewing window maintains equipment in an enclosed and guarded state. As such, the de-risked work task is not inherently hazard-inducing, and can be performed in compliance with standards like NFPA 70E and CSA Z462, without the need for elevated levels of PPE.



green bullet square Efficiency: Stop wasting time opening enclosures and complying with restrictive work tasks that require donning elevated levels of PPE. The time saved just peaking through a window will more than justify the minimal costs of installation.

green bullet square See Inside "Dangerous" Applications: Is dust beginning to collect on the conductors of your high-calorie switchgear or drive? That dust can lead to tracking and a breakdown in the insulation, leading, ultimately, to an arc event. Keep an eye on equipment that your recent incident energy analysis labeled "Dangerous" and can no longer be opened due to high calorie values.


green bullet square De-Risk Tasks: Open-panel inspections are, by their nature, high risk because they introduce a host of potential variables: stirring dust, agitating a conductor or misplaced tool, scaring a rodent, possibly dropping parts into the enclosure, etc. Visual Inspection Windows maintain an enclosed and guarded state (per the standards) and remove the high-risk work tasks, thereby reducing the risk associated with open-panel inspections. Facility managers can take comfort in knowing that the new closed-panel is de-risking their inspection process.
