Matrox Design Assistant X already captured images from any GigE Vision or USB3 Vision compliant camera, and the latest version now lets users capture images directly from one or more CoaXPress cameras using a Matrox Rapixo CXP
Direct connection to PLCs
Version 2006 of Matrox Design Assistant X now offers CC-Link IE Field Basic, along with EtherNet/IP, Modbus over TCP/IP, and PROFINET industrial communication. CC-Link IE Field Basic communication enables direct interaction with programmable logic/automation controllers from Mitsubishi Electric®. Moreover, the flowchart-based software now also features a PLC interface emulator so that users can test communication with a PLC without needing one at hand, thereby simplifying the application development and maintenance process.
