Matrox new GigE-Vision Cameras for dump and dusty industrial environments

(PresseBox) ( München, )
GatorEye - designed for harsh environments
The Matrox GatorEye IP67-rated GigE Vision industrial cameras are designed for use in damp and dusty environments such as glass bottle manufacturing, or environments where the processing equipment is subject to frequent wash down such as food and beverage plants. The Matrox GatorEye is fully integrated, eliminating the need to separately source a sealed camera housing. Moreover, the housing provides easy access to the lens, avoiding the hassle of having to remove the whole camera from a sealed housing to adjust the lens.

flexible power options
The Matrox GatorEye camera can operate on a separate 12 to 24 Volt input, the latter the most typically found in electrical cabinets on plant floors. Cabling is further simplified by making use of a camera’s Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capability, which enables power and data transmission over a single cable.

versatile connectivity
The Matrox GatorEye offers numerous I/Os for controlling all aspects of image capture. An opto-isolated trigger input with associated debouncing circuitry enables to directly synchronize image capture with external events. A strobe output enables the control of scene illuminators. A controlled current source output is also provided for directly driving a LED illuminator, eliminating the need for a separate controller, which reduces costs and simplifies integration. In addition, the Matrox Iris GT offers eight GPIOs for directly interacting with other automation devices.
