It supports Ethernet/IP and Modbus over TCP/IP to interact with PLCs and other process automation equipment and includes an SDK (software developer kit) that lets users add custom functionality. Users can create an application flowchart that instructs the Matrox Iris E-Series camera to capture, process, analyze, and display image data, and eliminates the need for programming and scripting. The development environment is self-contained, and the integrated HTML editor and layout tool lets users create a custom Web-based operator view for monitoring the application. Matrox Iris E-Series smart camera family supports PC-based machine vision systems, and features hardware for image sensing and software for image capture, processing, and analysis. It is powered by an ultra low power (ULP) Celeron and embedded Intel architecture processor, and runs Microsoft Windows CE real-time operating system.
