Turn Hours and Days into Minutes
Modal Amplified™, a camera-based Modal Test and Analysis solution, enables a new shift from the time-consuming sensor mapping, placement, fixation, and animated modeling of typical Modal Testing to instant capture, visualization, and analysis on real-life structures.
Modal Amplified leverages simultaneous measurement of the force input with the response measured directly from the camera. Users can not only immediately visualize the resulting modes shapes, but they can place an unlimited number of sensors across the structure through virtual regions of interests. This approach allows users to have Modal results in a matter of minutes, from capture to visualizing the modes shapes, complete with dozens, even hundreds of sensors measured across the structure.
Rather than spend hours and days setting up a test site to determine what a structure could look like and how it might react using Modal Testing, camera-based Modal Amplified sets up in minutes, can be moved anywhere for multiple views, and instantly visualizes the actual real-life structure, significantly improving data capture, workflow, and cost for Modal solution users.
Get To Your Data Faster
Go from hours and days of set-up and testing and verifying sensors to setting up and acquiring data in just minutes. From design to prototyping, certification or qualification, get to your data faster. Capture, visualize, and analysis in minutes.
Real-World vs Model
Modal Amplified™ enables the shift from time-consuming animated modeling that shows what a structure theoretically could look like through Modal Testing, to visualizing the actual real-life structure with camera-based technology. Collect data on objects too small or out of reach of physical accelerometers. Easily capture large structures in field or in lab without needing sensors.
Capture, Analyze in One Platform
From capture to visualization and analysis, it’s all in one platform. Automatically calculate mode shape measurements, filter video by vibration frequencies, instantly capturing mode shapes, natural frequency, associated dampening and movement the human eye and sensors cannot detect, all within the software.
Modal Amplified™ leverages simultaneous measurement of the force input with the response measured directly from the camera. Users can immediately visualize resulting modes shapes, while placing an unlimited number of sensors across the structure through virtual regions of interests.
Test on Large or Small Components
Collect data on objects too small or out of reach of physical sensors; captures real-life aftermarket structure, eliminating need to capture non-OEM parts.
Eliminate the Need to Recapture Data
Video capturing eliminates wasting time by recording unnecessary data sets, or too few data points that result in a poor representation of the structure.
Automated Frequency Filtering
Capture 2.5 million data points on the entire structure, then automatically amplify and filter video to the vibration frequencies of interest, reducing the need for time-consuming calculations.
The test subject is never altered or destroyed. No surface prep is required
