Connect to devices and networks

The Matrox Iris GTR features a 10/100/1,000 Mbit Ethernet interface for connecting over factory-floor and enterprise networks. Communication over these networks is configured through Matrox Design Assistant X; the software can communicate over Ethernet networks using the TCP/IP as well as the CC-Link IE Field Basic, EtherNet/IP2, Modbus over TCP/IP, and PROFINET protocols, enabling interaction with programmable logic/automation controllers. Its QuickComm facility provides ready-to-go communication with these controllers.

Direct communication can be established with robot controllers for 2D vision-guided robotic applications. Supported robot-controller makes and models currently include the ABB IRC5; DENSO RC8; Epson RC420+ and RC520+; Fanuc LRMate200iC and LRMate200iD; KUKA KR C2; and Stäubli CS8, CS8C HP, and CS9 controllers. The Matrox Iris GTR can also be configured to directly interact with automation devices through seven industrial digital I/Os (four inputs and three outputs).
