Meridian Laboratory Custom Solution Reduces NASCAR Video Camera Vibrations

ROTOCON improves Camera

The choice manufacturer and integrator of high-end, in-car video cameras used by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) for live video transmission and recording was challenged to create a new generation of more vibration-free cameras.

Challenge

The choice manufacturer and integrator of high-end, in-car video cameras used by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) for live video transmission and recording was challenged to create a new generation of more vibration-free cameras. After experimenting with many types of natural and synthetic rubbers, plastics and urethanes to isolate and minimize vibration, the manufacturer could not achieve desired results using standard, off-the-shelf parts.

Solution

Working with Meridian Laboratory, the manufacturer was surprised to learn of quick and cost-effective tooling that Meridian could customize to fit its exact needs. With Meridian Laboratory’s engineering support, and the ability to specify the exact tolerances/dimensions of the customer’s proposed solution, a custom polyurethane ML6 vibration isolation mount was created to meet the demands. The manufacturer could then design a solution useable on new and existing equipment, minimizing the need for any design changes to cameras already in the field, while maximizing performance.

    We purchased 16 of the Rotocon MC500 Rotary Ground Assemblies. Your product is amazing, they work great and are rolling 20 … More hours a day still just fine. We have had them in service since December of 2019 and they have been absolutely bullet proof. This was the perfect solution to our power transfer problem.

    Amazing company and Top Tier products, contacted them out of desperation after the company we got our equipment from changed … More their product and it no longer functioned correctly. I found them through googling the part and decided to call. The person who answered was kind and professional. Vance was awesome, not only knew what part I was talking about, but also, what problems I had with it. That same day I ordered the part and had it within a few days. It arrived exactly as expected and I am happy to recommend Meridian to anyone needing ML6 (polyurethane).
