Motion Amplification

The IRIS M Motion Amplification kit is a ready to use kit allowing to perform MA in order to make visible hidden motion from machinery and structure.

The kit is made of High speed camera, 4 lens, power and connection cable, 1 software licence, tripod, carrying case, industrial tablet, vibration damper.The Motion Amplification™ software produces an easy to understand amplified video of the motion across an asset enabling communication between technical and nontechnical resources leading to enhanced decision making and focused activities. Videos can be produced within seconds of data collection. In other words, it saves time and money.

IRIS M 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.

Modal Analysis and Operating Deflection Shape

In some cases,it may become unavoidable to do some structural vibration analysis as well. Most often this is done by performing ODS (Operating Deflection Shape Analysis) or Modal Analysis.

An operating deflection shape shows the deformation of a structure at a specific frequency or during a time waveform playback. ODS shows the response of a structure to both resonant and forced vibration, and is generally very representative of the real world data. ODS evaluation can be particularly useful in the analysis of rotation machinery equipment where internally generated forces can be high.

Modal analysis is similar to ODS in that deformation of the structure can be viewed, but it is primarily concerned with resonance frequencies (or natural frequencies) of a structure. Modal analysis is typically performed as a vibration exciter by exciting the structure with a known force and measuring the response of the structure at many locations using accelerometers. The measured frequency response functions are analyzed to determine the modal parameters.

In plant environments, users often perform a “bump test” (also called an impact test, hammer test, or resonance test) as the primary excitation for this type of structural vibration analysis. Frequency response functions are evaluated to determine the responses to the vibration excitation, and consequently the modal response at resonance.
