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 EtherNet/IP3, Modbus over 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 controllers6 for 2D vision-guided robotic applications.
Matrox Design Assistant can be configured to interact with automation devices through a computer’s COM ports. Matrox Design Assistant can also 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.
