Vibration Camera Motion Detector – RDI IRIS CM™

The Iris CM is the latest innovation in video-based asset condition monitoring. With the Iris CM, Motion Amplification® is a flexible and scalable solution that continuously monitors your equipment while you are away.


The Iris CM is the latest innovation in video-based asset condition monitoring. With the Iris CM, Motion Amplification® is a flexible and scalable solution that continuously monitors your equipment while you are away.

   This tool connects traditional vibration inputs and RDI’s patented video-based vibration measurements to ensure you never miss anything in your facility. Numerous cameras can be networked to capture simultaneous data and offer multiple views of a process, test, or piece of machinery. Leveraging a powerful 6 TB acquisition device, the Iris CM can acquire and store HD data for each connected camera along with external sensor data from accelerometers, tachometers, and any 4-20 mA input. Users can trigger video and data recordings based on external inputs, virtual camera-based regions of interest, and thresholds for movement. The Iris CM features live Motion Amplification® and the ability to quantify vibration, amplitude, phase, and frequency for anything visible in the recorded video. This product uniquely allows you to troubleshoot transient events and visualize your assets over longer periods of time like no tool has before. The Iris CM does not have to be permanently mounted and does not have to touch any of your equipment. With the Iris CM, you now have to ability to see what is happening on your equipment 24/7 even when you are away.

_______ VIDEO RESOURCES _______


Motion Amplification® is a proprietary video processing technique that detects subtle displacement and then converts that movement to a level visible with the naked eye.


Iris CM measures and quantifies mechanical or structural assets that a camera can see with the same accuracy as a contacting displacement sensor.


Iris CM allows you to filter data and visualize movement at specific frequencies to find the real source of a problem and help position your team to fix it.


Iris CM enhances understanding of components and interrelationships creating movement and provides a communication tool for technical and non-technical resources.

________ Software Program IRIS CM™ _________

   By visualizing, quantifying, and relaying structural assets’ movement, Motion Amplification® software provides a window into just how damaging vibrations and improper machinery movement can become. RDI’s Motion Amplification® technology can assess faults in machinery and other components by measuring the physical properties of movement and vibration, deflection, and displacement. 

    Using patented camera and software technology, Motion Amplification® involves turning every pixel in the camera’s view into a sensor to measure and record video vibration analysis and motion with incredible accuracy. From there, a proprietary video processing algorithm detects subtle motion and enlarges it to be visible to the naked eye.

   Visualization provides a key difference in determining and understanding faults in machinery, infrastructure, and even processes in human bodies. While tools like accelerometers, strain gauges, and modeling software can detect and relay traditional vibration data, being able to see vibration problems and their potential solutions via video makes for a deeper impact than looking at only data and charts.

Vibration Camera

But by using a Motion Amplification® camera and software, it’s possible to detect such tiny movements and understand their effects. Motion Amplification® technology uses digital video and image processing techniques to measure vibration and movement pixel by pixel, extracting and scaling up data to produce a visual representation of movement.

   The live video feed processes pixels in real time to show how vibrations and movements affect the whole system and supporting structures and can be recorded and post processed for advanced analysis. While conventional vibration analysis techniques can produce numerical data and charts that indicate vibration extent and damage, seeing is believing. Video Motion Amplification® provides a powerful, non-invasive visual representation of subtle movements and a rich, cost-effective means of analysis.
