Now with Displacement Time Waveforms and Frequency Spectra
The Iris M powered by Motion Amplification is a revolutionary video-processing product and software package that measures subtle motion and amplifies that motion to a level visible with the naked eye. Every pixel becomes a sensor creating millions of data points in an instant. All the user has to do is point the camera at an asset take video data and then push a button to amplify the true motion of the entire field of view. Then simply draw a box anywhere in the image to measure the displacement with a time waveform and frequency spectrum. You can now see the big picture without adding costly sensors or spending days modeling the asset.
- Quick and effective alternative to traditional ODS
- Great troubleshooting tool
- Returns a Time Waveform and Frequency Spectrum anywhere in the image.
- Effective communication tool between technical and non-technical resources
- Software is easy to use and provides instant results
- Completely non-contact solution
- Acquire data during normal operations
- Possible uses are endless
How Does it Work?
RDI’s patented technology measures deflection, displacement, movement and vibration not visible to the human eye. We utilize video camera technology in conjunction with our software and processing algorithms to extract meaningful data. This technology turns every pixel in the camera’s view into a sensor capable of measuring vibration or motion with high levels of accuracy. The user simply draws a box in the image to measure the time waveform and frequency spectrum.
The results lend themselves to a visualization of the motion. We can measure and quantify any structural assets that a camera can see. Motion Amplification is a proprietary video processing algorithm that detects subtle motion then amplifies that motion to a level visible with the naked eye which enhances the understanding of the components and interrelationships creating the motion.
Why is Visualization So Important?
Visualization is key to determining faults in machinery, infrastructure, and human performance. You can look at numbers and analysis from tools like accelerometers, strain gauges, modeling software, or even our own patented optical sensing technology and still not be able to visualize what the problem is. Sometimes just being able to see what is happening can change your perspective completely and allow for a more targeted and cost effective approach to fault analysis. There are tools to magnify an image or to offer point measurements on a machine or piece of infrastructure, but no real way to see what is happening live and over the whole asset until now. RDI offers the first non-invasive, simple, and cost effective way to visualize what is happening beyond what you can see with your eye.
We aren't guessing at the motion or adding in artifacts, you are seeing the true microscopic motions of any object in the field of view.
