Connect to devices and networks

Matrox 4Sight GPm features four Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting to GigE Vision® cameras and four USB 3.0 ports for connecting to USB3 Vision™ cameras. Additionally, two more Gigabit Ethernet ports allow for direct connection to factory-floor and enterprise networks. Communication over these networks is configured through Matrox Design Assistant and can employ the TCP/IP as well as the EthertNet/IP™ 3, MODBUS® over TCP/IP and PROFINET protocols, enabling interaction with automation controllers. Direct communication can be established with select robot controllers6 for 2D vision-guided robotic applications. Matrox 4Sight GPm can also be configured to directly interact with automation devices through two RS232/RS485 serial interfaces as well as 16 industrial real-time digital I/Os (eight inputs and eight outputs). These I/Os have dedicated hardware to reliably count time intervals and pulses from rotary encoders.
