Matrox Iris GT
Matrox Imaging has introduced the Matrox Iris GT, a smart camera for machine vision applications. Designed for harsh environments, the small, fast and rugged camera is the perfect fit for industrial applications.
The smart camera is powered by an Intel 1.6GHz Atom processor and runs Windows CE 6.0, Microsoft's real-time embedded operating system. Matrox Iris GT features an integrated graphics controller with VGA output, 256MB DDR2 memory, and 1GB of flash disk. For connectivity to external devices, Matrox Iris GT includes a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, a USB 2.0 port, an RS-232 serial port, an opto-coupled trigger input and strobe output. It also supports Ethernet/IP and Modbus over TCP/IP communications to directly interact with PLCs and other automation equipment. The camera is housed in a sturdy, dust-proof and washable casing and is initially available in two sensor configurations: 640 x 480 at 110fps 1/3-inch monochrome CCD and 1280 x 960 at 22fps 1/3-inch monochrome CCD.
Matrox Iris GT is available either with the Matrox Design Assistant interactive development environment (bundled with each unit) or with the Matrox Imaging Library (sold separately).
