Motion Amplification is a proprietary video processing algorithm that detects subtle motion and amplifies that motion to a level visible to the naked eye. The results lend themselves to visualization of motion, as well as the measure and quantification of motion in Plant Machinery, Manufacturing Equipment, Piping, Structures and other Industrial Assets.
Using this revolutionary technology one can literally SEE the problem and check for Root Cause, identifying complex abnormalities like base foundation problems in quick time. This is why Motion Amplification is changing the way industry monitors its plant assets and has become the cutting edge complement to traditional condition monitoring technologies like Vibration and Oil Analysis.
A patented technology measures deflection, displacement, movement and vibration. Utilizing video camera technology in conjunction with our software and processing algorithms, every pixel in the camera’s view is turned into a sensor capable of measuring vibration or motion with high accuracy. In other words our proprietary software turns millions of pixels in today’s modern cameras into millions of individual data points that can be monitored, read and analysed.
The Iris M System comprising of a Camera, Acquisition device, and Software incorporates Motion Amplification technology and can be used to analyse practically any physical asset that can be viewed and captured on camera. This makes the System suitable for a wide range of Applications, useable by various departments and subplants to SEE and solve problems every day.
FREQUENCY BASED FILTERING
The Iris M™, allows users to isolate individual frequencies in RDI’s Motion Amplification™ software. Combinations of filters can be applied to isolate multiple frequencies. Filtering is performed graphically by the user through a color-coded spectrum. The spectrum represents the displacement for a region of interest in the video data. Simply drag the cursor representing a filter’s cutoff frequency on the spectrum to apply the filters to any frequency.
Additional Features Include:
Orbit Plots – Displays displacements at a location in the data on an X-Y plot.
