Matrox Imaging at Vision 2016 — Product Preview
Multi-aspect container inspection and 3D profiling demonstrations highlight Matrox software, smart camera, vision controller, and frame grabber updates and capabilities
MONTREAL – September 15, 2016 — At Vision 2016, (Stuttgart, November 8–10, booth1-F 21), Matrox® Imaging will demonstrate vision projects created using a new version of the Matrox Design Assistant flowchart-based vision software to inspect container integrity and marking. The projects will run on the new Matrox Iris GTR smart camera as well as the Matrox 4Sight GPm vision controller with two additional cameras.
The capabilities of Matrox SureDotOCR™, which lets packaging line equipment builders design inspection systems that can reliably read the often distorted information applied by industrial inkjet printers and now integrated into Matrox Design Assistant, will also be featured.
Matrox Design Assistant is the first hardware-independent integrated development environment (IDE) that lets users create an application flowchart and HMI and take machine vision projects from concept to completion in record time, without the need for conventional programming.
Matrox Iris GTR is an extremely rugged, IP67-rated camera measuring just 75mm x 75mm x 54mm allowing it to fit into tight and dirty spaces. It uses On Semiconductor® PYTHON CMOS image sensors with high readout rates and an Intel® Celeron® dual-core embedded processor that allow it to inspect on faster moving lines or perform more inspections in an allotted time.
Matrox 4Sight GPm is a vision controller featuring a unique combination of embedded PC technology, compact size, and ruggedness making it an ideal solution for cost-sensitive image analysis and machine vision applications.
In a second demonstration, the latest version of Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) vision software and add-ons will be paired with the high-performance, cost-effective Radient eV-CXP CoaXPress® frame grabber to create and analyze high-quality 3D profiles of an industrial component.
Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is a comprehensive collection of software tools for developing industrial imaging applications. MIL includes tools for every step in the process: from application feasibility, to prototyping, through to development, and ultimately deployment. MIL 10 with Processing Pack 2 includes Matrox SureDotOCR, a reliable ellipse finder, 3D cross-section extraction and analysis using the existing metrology tool, and a barcode reader that works in more instances without adjusting default settings.
Matrox Radient eV-CXP is a cost-effective, high-performance, and dependable frame grabber for the CoaXPress® interface standard. With CXP, image data can be transmitted at up to 6.25 Gbps using a single coaxial cable and up to 25 Gbps using four cables to a maximum of 40 meters. CXP’s high-bandwidth makes it the right match for a new generation of cameras with larger and faster image sensors.
