Connect to devices and networks

Matrox Design Assistant can capture images from any GigE Vision® and USB3 Vision™ compliant camera. The software can communicate over Ethernet networks using the TCP/IP as well as the EthertNet/IP™ 3, Modbus® TCP/IP and PROFINET protocols, enabling interaction with programmable logic/automation controllers. Its QuickComm facility provides ready-to-go communication with these controllers. Matrox Design Assistant supports direct communication with select robot controllers5 for 2D vision-guided robotic applications.

Matrox Design Assistant can also be configured to interact with automation devices through a computer’s COM ports. Matrox Design Assistant can directly interact with the I/Os built into a Matrox vision controller, smart camera and I/O card as well as the I/O available on a GigE Vision or USB3 Vision camera.
