Matrox Imaging’s new Matrox 4Sight EV6 is the latest installment to the vision controller lineup. An enhancement of its immediate predecessor, the Matrox 4Sight GPm, the Matrox 4Sight EV6 integrates a seventh-generation Intel Core processor to power ever-more demanding multi-camera applications.
Matrox 4Sight EV6 possesses the ingrained power to handle multi-camera inspections with ease and efficiency. Powered by an embedded mobile-class processor, this vision controller also features four Gigabit Ethernet and four SuperSpeed USB ports, allowing for multiple connections to the full range of available GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras. These Gigabit Ethernet ports support power-over-Ethernet (PoE), further simplifying cabling and costs.
The Matrox 4Sight EV6’s built-in connectivity makes it simple to interface with industrial equipment and communicate with enterprise systems. RS-232/RS-485 ports support connections to legacy automation devices while two additional GigE ports offer independent connections to work cell and enterprise networks, and include a hardware-assisted mechanism for PROFINET communication. Integrated real-time digital I/Os with rotary encoder support help synchronize with other equipment for consistent results.
Matrox 4Sight EV6’s rugged casing ensures this vision controller fits readily into hostile, space-limited locations, while a fan-less design helps reduce physical maintenance.
An early-access version of the Matrox 4Sight EV6 will be available in Q1 2019.
