RDI’s Iris MX has been named a finalist for the 2019 Prism Awards presented by SPIE and Photonics Media.  “This year’s Prism finalists represent the savviest and most innovative companies from the growing optics and photonics industry,” said SPIE CEO Kent Rochford.  Established industry stalwarts will compete with disruptive startups at the Prism Awards ceremony and banquet during SPIE Photonics West 2019 in San Francisco. The awards ceremony, now celebrating its 11th year, recognizes industrial innovation in photonics in multiple categories. For the consideration of the 2019 Prism Awards, SPIE received 120 applications from 15 countries.  The Iris MX from RDI Technologies expands upon its revolutionary Iris M product to open up the world of Motion Amplification to high speed applications.  Like the Iris M, the Iris MX utilizes the millions of pixels in today’s modern cameras to measure deflection, displacement, movement, and vibration not visible to the human eye.

“The whole team at RDI has worked tirelessly to get this product to the market and it is truly an honor for that work to be acknowledged by this year’s PRISM awards committee. We have been humbled and excited by how rapidly our product has been adopted and used by our customers to innovate the machine condition monitoring space in such a short period of time and are excited to expand that innovation to new markets over the next few years,” said RDI COO Jenna Johns.

More about the Iris MX:

The Iris M utilizes the millions of pixels in today’s modern cameras to measure deflection, displacement, movement, and vibration not visible to the human eye. The Iris M software converts those millions of pixels into individual data points, measuring extremely small vibrations or motions with a high degree of accuracy.  It then displays the results in an amplified video that brings the problems to life in a visual form.  The Iris M covers a large percentage of faults at a plant, but now with the Iris MX, we can extend that range.

The Iris MX utilizes the same software as the Iris M and is plug and play with current user’s software.  RDI Technologies has combined the ability to reach 1,400 frames per second in HD resolution with our seamless user intuitive software opening up possibilities in the industrial market beyond current technologies.

“The Iris M has revolutionized the way our customers do machinery maintenance in a way no one expected over the last two years,” said Jenna Johns, COO of RDI Technologies.

“As the user base of the Iris M has grown, so has the use cases,” said Jeff Hay, CEO of RDI Technologies. The Iris MX is the result of that. The Iris MX is capable of seeing frequencies much higher than the Iris M and capable of imaging machinery in a large field of view at those higher frequencies. Faults typical in turbomachinery, blade pass frequencies and higher orders of synchronous machinery can all be imaged full frame. If you need higher speed, we have you covered”.

About SPIE:

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. The Society serves 257,000 constituents from 173 countries, offering conferences and their published proceedings, continuing education, books, journals, and the SPIE Digital Library. In 2018, SPIE provided more than $4 million in community support including scholarships and awards, outreach and advocacy programs, travel grants, public policy, and educational resources. https://www.spie.org.
