An infrared window is a generic term used to describe an inspection point that is designed to allow infrared radiation to transmit to the outside of an electrical device without the typical requirements to open the equipment and therefore have exposure the energized circuits inside the gear.
IR windows must fulfill the strength, rigidity and environmental requirements of the type of equipment into which it is installed. It must also be compatible with the infrared equipment being used. The design, size, and material used are driven by considerations such as the required field-of-view, camera lens compatibility, intended environment, sealing requirements, and safety considerations.
