Meridian Laboratory Custom Solution Reduces NASCAR Video Camera Vibrations

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.
