Matrox® Imaging have announced the launch of the Matrox Indio input/output (I/O) and communication card for vision applications.
The PCIe® x1 add-in card offers discrete I/Os with real-time synchronization and industrial networking using the EtherNet/IP™, Modbus®, and PROFINET protocols, turning any PC into a vision controller.
With eight inputs and eight outputs, the Matrox Indio provides jumper-selectable signalling in both 24V and TTL-level standards, making it ideal for both industrial and laboratory use. I/Os are optically-isolated and outputs feature resettable fuses to safeguard against damage from unintended use. Configurable for both sinking and sourcing, I/Os are accessed from a standard 37-pin D-sub connector.
Matrox Indio also makes a Gigabit Ethernet port (RJ45) available for industrial networking using the EtherNet/IP, Modbus, and PROFINET protocols. To ensure a timely response, PROFINET communication is hardware-assisted. Alternatively, the Gigabit Ethernet port can connect to and power a GigE Vision® camera by way of Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, reducing the cabling required.
