Seeing is Believing
What People Are Saying
“Our RDI Technologies IRIS M motion camera has quickly become the most used piece of advanced technology in our rotating equipment department. The IRIS M is extremely exciting for us as it is the first genuinely new form of vibration analysis equipment since we stopped recording with audio tape 30 years ago. Finally clients who can’t read a spectrum or waveform truly understand the gravity of their vibration issues.”
– Bryant Sutton, Operations Manager, Southern Services Inc.
“This video amplification technology has limitless applications. RDI has helped Millennitek identify motion and vibration issues that have resulted in improved yields and predictive maintenance planning. This is a must see technology that is cutting edge.”
– Steve Getley, President, MillenniTEK LLC
“This has proved to be a great assistance to rectifying a long term plant issue. After only a short set up time it confirmed our vibration and phase measurement’s without physically touching the plant.“
– Peter Fanning, Condition Monitoring Team Leader, AGL Loy Yang
“Very good investment.“
– Frederic Robinet, Owner, Machinery Reliability Solutions
Frequency Based Filtering has Arrived!
The newest update for RDI Technologies flagship product, the Iris M, allows users to isolate individual frequencies in the Motion Amplified video data. 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 motion 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.
Check out the video to see how the game changing new feature can revolutionize the way you see motion.
In addition to the filter update, version 2.0 includes the following valuable new features:
- Orbit Plots – Displays motions at a location in the data on an X-Y plot.
- Simpler ROI drawing – Drawing an ROI with the mouse has been updated to make displacement measurements more intuitive.
- Record data sets based on time instead of number of frames.
- Addition of CPM units.
- Ability to export time waveforms to .csv files.
How Does Motion Amplification 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 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.
