Motion Amplification: A New Way to Visualize Vibrations
Motion Amplification utilizes a camera to turn each pixel into a displacement sensor capable of measuring vibrations and amplifying them to a level visible to the eye. This capability lends itself to an advanced troubleshooting tool for routine inspection and root cause analysis. A case study will highlight how the technology has been applied to solve a long standing critical motor stator pump issue at a power generation facility. Before and after video will demonstrate the results after corrective action.
