Discrete I/Os, real-time synchronization, and gigabit ethernet make any computer a vision controller for industrial or laboratory settings
MONTREAL – October 20, 2016 — Matrox® Imaging today announced the launch of the Matrox Indio input/output (I/O) and communication card for vision applications. The PCIe® x1 add-in card offers discrete I/Os with real-time synchronization and industrial networking using the EtherNet/IP™, Modbus®, and PROFINET protocols, turning any PC into a vision controller.
With eight inputs and eight outputs, the Matrox Indio provides jumper-selectable signalling in both 24V and TTL-level standards, making it ideal for both industrial and laboratory use. I/Os are optically-isolated and outputs feature resettable fuses to safeguard against damage from unintended use. Configurable for both sinking and sourcing, I/Os are accessed from a standard 37-pin D-sub connector.
