RDI Technologies’ Iris M Lets You See Subtle, Yet Harmful, Machine Motion

Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 9.05.22 AMRDI Technologies (Knoxville, TN), says “seeing is believing” when it comes to the company’s Iris M powered by Motion Amplification video-processing product and software package. The patented technology measures subtle machinery motion (including deflection, displacement, movement, and vibration) and amplifies that motion to a level that’s visible to the naked eye (see example application video). Every pixel becomes a sensor, creating millions of data points in an instant.

According to RDI, the user simply has to point the camera at an asset, obtain the video data, and push a button to amplify the true motion of the entire field of view. By drawing a box anywhere in the image, he/she can then measure the motion with a time waveform and frequency spectrum.

Editor’s Note: A recently released Stabilization Update software module for the Iris M powered by Motion Amplification package allows users to  stabilize video that contains motion from camera shake due to environments where ground vibration is unavoidable (see video). In addition to automatically stabilizing based on the entire image, this update features an option to draw a Region of Interest (ROI) in the image that the user knows to be stationary. This helps in complicated motion environments.

Advanced Controller

Anwender nutzen jetzt in Hochsprachen wie C/CC+ geschriebene Programme mit Simatic Controllern. Dazu hat Siemens den neuen Advanced Controller CPU 1518 ODK und das Engineering-Paket Simatic ODK 1500S entwickelt. Mit dem Open Development Kit erzeugt der Anwender sein Hochsprachen-Programm und integriert es in das Step-7-Programm des neuen Controllers. Nowadays, users are using programs written in high-level languages, such as C/CC+, with Simatic controllers. Siemens has developed the new CPU 1518 ODK advanced controller and the Simatic ODK 1500S engineering package for this purpose. The user generates his high-level language program with the Open Development Kit, and integrates it into the Step 7 program of the new controller.

/

The Simatic S7-1518-4 PN/DP OKD controller is said to handles the most advanced standard and fail-safe automation applications. The controller has a 13-MB user work memory and 43-GB load memory with memory card. As many as 128 drives axes with isochronous operation in the 250-microsecond operation range can be connected without additional modules.

Output Filter for Motor Drives

1702mtprod08pThe FN510 dv/dt filter is said to eliminate premature motor damage caused by high dv/dt, over voltages on motor cables, and motor overheating. For motors from 1.5 to 30 KW with frequencies to 400 Hz (4 to 24 A) or 200 Hz (33 to 66 A), the technology reduces high-output voltage dv/dt from IGBT motor drives and restricts over voltages caused by line reflections on motor cables.

Emerson Introduces ‘Industry First’ WirelessHART Power Meter

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 4.31.12 PMEmerson (Mansfield, OH) has introduced what it says is “industry’s first” WirelessHART Power Meter. Part of the company’s pervasive-sensing portfolio, the device provides electrical demand- and consumption-measurement through a secure and reliable network for a range of applications, including, those found in processing, industrial, cold-chain storage facilities, and data centers, among others.

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 4.31.31 PMHow It Works
Incorporating WirelessHART technology in a revenue-grade wireless power meter, the new product is said to be capable of delivering a unique measurement solution that will greatly improve energy efficiency and sustainability.

WirelessHART technology, coupled with the power meter’s small physical footprint, simplifies and speeds installation of the unit and allows sites to monitor voltage, current, power, energy, and other electrical parameters on single- and three-phase electrical systems in real-time with revenue-grade accuracy. Real-time monitoring of electricity consumption and instantaneous demand enables more granular energy management and effective equipment monitoring, securely and reliably.

Compressed Air Membrane Dryer

1702mtprod06pThe AMD-035 SuperStar membrane dryer provides ultra-clean and ultra-dry compressed air. The dryer can be used where refrigerated dryers may be too large or electricity is not available or desirable. The unit lowers the dew point by continuously removing water vapor and venting into the surrounding atmosphere. A pre-filtration system uses a high-efficiency coalescing filter. The dryer does not have to be removed from the system for maintenance.
