Montreal, Quebec – Matrox Imaging’s 4Sight EV6 vision controller updates the outgoing 4Sight GPm with a seventh-generation Intel Core processor to power ever-more demanding multi-camera applications.

The 4Sight EV6 handles multi-camera inspections with ease and efficiency. Powered by an embedded mobile-class processor, this vision controller also features four Gigabit Ethernet and four SuperSpeed USB ports, allowing for multiple connections to the full range of available GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras. These Gigabit Ethernet ports support power-over-Ethernet (PoE), further simplify cabling and costs.

Interfacing with industrial equipment and communicating with enterprise systems is possible with RS-232/RS-485 ports that support connections to legacy automation devices. Two additional GigE ports offer independent connections to work cell and enterprise networks and include a hardware-assisted mechanism for PROFINET communication. Integrated real-time digital I/Os with rotary encoder support help synchronize with other equipment for consistent results.

The 4Sight EV6’s rugged casing ensures this vision controller fits readily into hostile, space-limited locations, while a fanless design helps reduce physical maintenance.

An early-access version of the Matrox 4Sight EV6 will be available in Q1 2019.
