The Motion Amplification® system uses a high-speed camera and dynamic pixel response to light changes to analyse vibrations.
When a machine vibrates, it deflects light in an imperceptibly time-varying way, depending on its frequency and type of displacement.
The Motion Amplification®, thanks to its innovative and revolutionary software, allows to analyse these imperceptible variations of light and to make a real “vibration analysis”.
Even more incredibly, motion can be “filtered” and “reconstructed” to show the various frequencies independently of each other.
IRIS-M™ System Motion Analysis Software. Spectral and waveform analysis for all pixels.
Amazingly, the IRIS-M™ and IRIS-MX™ systems are small and highly functional.
They look like ordinary, not-so-large cameras mounted on a tripod and connected to a laptop.
If the light is not enough, they are equipped with LED lighting systems, but they can easily work with normal lamps available on the market.
A Motion Amplification® technician is more like a videomaker than a typical vibration analyst.

The Motion Amplification® suite also includes the ability to make videos and movies with charts, spectra, waveforms and annotations.
This makes it easy to highlight the conclusions of the survey, to show them to staff who are not fully involved in the analysis or who are not purely technical.
There are applications for which it is necessary to raise the acquisition frequency to the maximum. These are not typical cases, they are not malfunctions usually detectable in normal analysis, but for some applications it may be necessary to go further.
And so the IRIS-MX™ system was born: the same capabilities as IRIS-M™ but taken to the incredible limit of 29ooo fps.
It is clear that such a system requires a lot of light to work perfectly, so in the kit we suggest to integrate one or more powerful LED lights to ensure the best possible visibility of the structures, even with very high acquisition speed.
There are situations where the anomalous event does not occur at a pre-established moment and it is necessary to continuously acquire from several points of view. These are the situations in which machines or piping, in moments not clearly identified, begin to vibrate in an anomalous way: despite the checks made it is not possible to understand when and how the problem shows itself.
Thus, the IRIS-CM™ system was born. The same capabilities of IRIS-M™ but some innovative and exceptional performances: from 1 to N cameras with amplification and continuous recording.
Such a system requires a constellation of rugged data processing units, each with an Intel I7 processor, 1TB SSD and 16GB of RAM, to ensure efficient and effective data analysis and storage.
