Matrox Imaging: Vision hardware, software for traceability, inspection, and guidance
Matrox Imaging’s Iris GT smart cameras are monitored and controlled remotely from Matrox Design Assistant 3.0 smart camera software, the latest release of the flowchart-based integrated development environment (IDE) for the Iris GT smart camera line, which makes it even faster and easier for users to create their application's flowchart and HMI.

Design Assistant 3.0 simplifies and accelerates HMI design with ready-made operator view layouts. The analysis status step consolidates decision making and simplifies flowchart design, while filmstrip views ensure that previously analyzed images are close at hand. Release 3.0 also permits monitoring and controlling multiple smart cameras via a multi-camera HMI application and provides support for PROFINET communication, which allows for direct interfacing to Siemens automation devices.
