Matrox Design Assistant 3.0
Matrox Imaging has announced Matrox Design Assistant 3.0, the latest release of its flowchart-based integrated development environment (IDE) for the Matrox Iris GT smart camera line.
The Iris GT smart camera and Design Assistant software bundle offers full-featured hardware, an intuitive flowchart-based development environment, and field-proven vision tools. With Design Assistant 3.0, it’s become even faster and easier for users to design their application’s flowchart and HMI. Plus, Matrox Imaging now offers optional advance replacement and extended warranties for these smart cameras.
Design Assistant 3.0 smart camera software simplifies and accelerates HMI design with more ready-made operator view layouts. The new analysis status step consolidates decision making and simplifies flowchart design, while filmstrip views ensure that previously analysed images are easy to find. Release 3.0 also permits monitoring and controlling multiple smart cameras via a multi-camera HMI application and provides support for Profinet communication, which allows for direct interfacing to Siemens automation devices. This latest version of Design Assistant includes other enhancements that improve productivity and the appearance of the operator interface.
