March 21, 2011, Chicago, IL — At Automate 2011, Matrox Imaging is announcing that the Matrox Iris GT smart camera now offers a model with a 5 MP (megapixel) monochrome CCD sensor.
 
"A high resolution sensor, like the one found on the Matrox Iris GT5000, is required to accurately inspect larger parts and packages. Matrox Iris GT5000 is the highest resolution version of the Iris GT smart camera available today," explains Fabio Perelli, Smart Camera Product Manager for Matrox Imaging. The sensor on the Matrox Iris GT5000 is 2448 x 2050 pixels @ 15 fps 2/3" monochrome CCD.
 
Powered by an Intel® Atom® 1.6 GHz processor, Matrox Iris GT runs Windows® CE 6.0 or Windows® XPe and features an integrated graphics controller with VGA output, 512 MB DDR2 memory, and a 2 GB flash disk. Like other sensor configurations, Matrox Iris GT5000 is housed in a sturdy, dust-proof and washable IP67-rated casing.
Matrox Iris GT is available either with the Matrox Design Assistant interactive development environment (bundled with each unit) or with the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) (sold separately). Matrox Iris GT5000 will be available at the end of Q2 2011.
 
 

About Matrox Design Assistant

In the Matrox Design Assistant environment, users interactively create a flowchart of the application instead of programming or scripting. Each flowchart "step" translates into an instruction for the Matrox Iris GT camera to capture, locate measure, read, communicate, and interact with other devices. Matrox Design Assistant offers all required vision tools for most applications with the same reliability and robustness as MIL. Matrox Design Assistant's integrated HTML editor and layout tool gives users the flexibility to create a custom web-based operator view for monitoring the application.
