Product Description

Matrox Iris GT combines the integration of a smart camera with the programmability of a PC-based machine vision system. An Intel® Atom® processor, choice of Microsoft® Windows® Embedded CE or XP Embedded operating systems, and keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) support, enable the Matrox Iris GT to provide a PC-like environment for deploying fully custom applications.

A choice of monochrome or color CCD sensors, combined with an efficient CPU, allows the Matrox Iris GT to tackle a variety of machine vision applications. Gigabit Ethernet,USB and RS-232 connectivity, as well as GPIOs, give the Matrox Iris GT the ability to interface with automation equipment and enterprise systems. An IP67-rated housing and M12 connectors make the Matrox Iris GT perfectly suited for harsh industrial environments. A DIN-mountable breakout box is available separately to easily connect the Matrox Iris GT to electrical panels.

  • Controlled current source for powering LED illuminators directly
  • Rugged construction with IP67-rated housing and M12 connectors

Windows® Embedded
The Matrox Iris GT comes pre-installed with either Microsoft® Windows® Embedded CE or XP Embedded®. Windows® Embedded CE delivers real-time performance in a smaller memory footprint and is programmed using a subset of the Windows® API. The Matrox Iris GT running Windows® Embedded CE includes support for the EtherNet/IP™1 and MODBUS® industrial communication protocols. Windows® XP Embedded on the other hand, is a pared down version of Windows® XP Professional with extended availability and support. For both operating systems, application development is cross-platform (i.e., PC linked to smart camera) and is done using the familiar Microsoft® Visual Studio® integrated development environment.

Matrox Imaging Library
Matrox Iris GT is supported by the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL), a comprehensive collection of software tools for developing machine vision applications. MIL features interactive software and programming functions for image capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display and archiving. These tools are designed to enhance productivity, thereby reducing the time and effort required to bring your solution to market. Refer to the MIL datasheet for more information.
