In the Part 2 the practical example will be analyzed.
Let’s look the background and calculate the most common frequencies produced by motor that potentially will be required for further analysis.

Motion amplification allows you to see things a normal camera can't show. These amplifications show you all frequencies but also allow you to isolate individual frequencies, and visualize faults. The program is user friendly, color coded, and gives you vibration data in an easy to export Mp4 format.

The fault diagnosis of induction motors, being probably the most common drivers used for industrial machinery plays an important role to reduce the catastrophic failures and production lost tonnage.

Machine learning is a tool that allows systems the ability to learn and improve automatically based upon experience. Machine learning does not need specific programming to carry out an activity. Machine learning is the development of computer programs that can access data, and through a series of algorithms use the data to learn for itself what action should be taken based on that data.

I’ve used motion amplification in industry intensively over the last two years. We’ve had some great successes with it, and it’s changed the way I do my work. We used this technology on cooling water pumps that are…
