Connection to devices and networks

Matrox Iris GTR features a 10/100/1000 Mbit Ethernet interface for connecting over 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 programmable logic/automation controllers.

Its QuickComm facility provides ready-to-go communication with these controllers. Direct communication can be established with select robot controllers6 for 2D vision-guided robotic applications. The Matrox Iris GTR can also be configured to directly interact with automation devices through eight industrial digital I/Os (four inputs and four outputs).
