Smart camera has 5 megapixel sensors
At Automate 2011, Matrox Imaging announced that the Matrox Iris GT smart camera now offers a model with a 5 MP (megapixel) monochrome CCD sensor.
“A high resolution sensor, like the one found on the Matrox Iris GT5000, is required to accurately inspect larger parts and packages. Matrox Iris GT5000 is the highest resolution version of the Iris GT smart camera available today,” explains Fabio Perelli, Smart Camera Product Manager for Matrox Imaging.
The sensor on the Matrox Iris GT5000 is 2448 x 2050 pixels at 15 fps 2/3" monochrome CCD. Powered by an Intel Atom 1.6 GHz processor, Matrox Iris GT runs Windows CE 6.0 or Windows XPe and features an integrated graphics controller with VGA output, 512 MB DDR2 memory, and a 2 GB flash disk. Like other sensor configurations, Matrox Iris GT5000 is housed in a sturdy, dust-proof and washable IP67-rated casing.
