Matrox Imaging to Showcase Matrox Iris GTR Smart Camera with Design Assistant 5 Vision Software at Vision 2016
Smaller, faster, more cost-effective smart camera combined with latest flowchart-based vision software ideal for factory automation applications
MONTREAL – October 19, 2016 — Matrox® Imaging today announced that, at Vision 2016 (Stuttgart, DE, Nov. 7-11, booth 1F21) and Pack Expo (Chicago, IL, Nov. 6-19, E-7747), the latest Matrox Design Assistant vision software will be demonstrated working with the recently launched Matrox Iris GTR smart camera.
Matrox Design Assistant 5 is the latest evolution of the flowchart-based integrated development environment (IDE) for machine vision. It lets users easily create an application flowchart as well as the HMI, thus taking projects from concept to completion in record time, with less effort, greater confidence, and without the need for conventional programming.
Matrox Iris GTR measures just 75mm x 75mm x 54mm, allowing it to fit into tight spaces. It uses On Semiconductor® PYTHON CMOS image sensors and an Intel® Celeron® dual-core embedded processor that allows it to inspect faster moving lines or perform more inspections in an allotted time. Its IP67-rated housing and M12 connectors make Iris GTR dust-proof, immersion-resistant, extremely rugged, and right at home in dirty industrial environments.
“Matrox Design Assistant 5 vision software is the ideal vision software for users of all skill levels based on proven technology currently in-place in factory automation applications across a wide range of industries,” said Fabio Perelli, product manager, Matrox Imaging. “System integrators, machine builders, and line integrators will appreciate the Iris GTR integrated with Design Assistant 5, allowing them to use the tools they need to tackle demanding vision projects faster than ever, easier than ever, and within tight budgets.”
Matrox Iris GTR smart cameras bundled with Design Assistant 5 vision software will be made available in Q4 2016. SKUs of the Iris GTR for use with the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) 10 SDK are available at this time.
