Many applications require higher resolution to acquire the entire area of interest in a single image - yet maintain the resolving power needed to perform necessary tasks such as reading multiple 2D codes. The Sony ICX274AL sensor on the Matrox Iris GT1900 is a 1600 x 1200 Pixel @ 15fps 1/1.8” monochrome CCD.
Powered by an Intel 1.6 GHz Atom processor, Matrox Iris GT1900 runs Windows CE 6.0, and features an integrated graphics controller with VGA output, 256MB DDR2 memory, and 1 GB of flash-disk. Like other sensor configurations, Matrox Iris GT1900 is housed in a sturdy, dust-proof and washable IP67-rated casing.
Matrox Iris GT1900 is available either with the Matrox Design Assistant IDE (bundled with each unit) or with the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) (sold separately).
In the Matrox Design Assistant environment, users interactively create a flowchart of the application instead of programming or scripting. Each flowchart "step" translates into an instruction for the Matrox Iris GT camera to capture, locate, measure, read, communicate and interact with other devices. Matrox Design Assistant offers all required vision tools for most applications with the same reliability and robustness as MIL. Matrox Design Assistant's integrated HTML editor and layout tool gives users the flexibility to create a custom web-based operator view for monitoring the application.
Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is a comprehensive collection of optimized software tools for developing industrial imaging applications that run under Windows CE 6.0 and other operating systems. The toolkit features interactive software and programming functions for performing image capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display and archiving. MIL specifically includes tools for calibrating, enhancing and transforming images, locating objects, extracting and measuring features, reading character strings, and decoding and verifying identification marks.
