Flowchart-based, hardware-independent machine vision software targets medical device manufacturing

Matrox Imaging : 11 August, 2014  (New Product)
Matrox Imaging has announced Design Assistant 4 (DA 4) vision software, a hardware-independent integrated development environment (IDE) that lets users easily create an application flowchart and HMI and take projects from concept to completion in record time, without the need for conventional programming. It not only works with Matrox Iris GT smart camera but also any PC with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras, including the Matrox 4Sight GPm industrial computer.

"Design Assistant is field-proven in demanding vision applications in a wide range of industries including automotive manufacturing, consumer products production, electronics assembly, food and beverage production, medical device manufacturing, logistics, pharmaceutical production and semiconductor fabrication" said Fabio Perelli, product manager at Matrox. “This latest release, with it’s ease-of-use and support for any PC with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras, has been eagerly awaited by system integrators, machine builders and line integrators around the world."


 


DA 4 is available now included with Matrox Iris GT smart cameras, pre-installed on specific SKUs of Matrox 4Sight GPm industrial computers and sold separately for use with generic PCs with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras. For a limited time, it is available at a special introductory price by contacting a Matrox Imaging representative. DA 4 is also available as a free upgrade for registered DA users with valid maintenance subscriptions. An evaluation copy of DA 4 can be requested on the Matrox Imaging website.


 


“DA 4’s hardware independence will foster new projects that take advantage of cameras offering high resolution, speed, and specialty features such as thermal images,” said David R. Sexton, president, North Coast Technical, Inc., a Matrox Imaging representative in the United States.  “What’s more, DA 4’s support for host PCs gives us access to unlimited computer processing horsepower to solve more advanced and sophisticated machine vision challenges.”


 


“DA 4 is so easy to use it will greatly shorten the development time for automation projects,” said Lei Jin, marketing manager, Microview & Lingzhi, a Matrox Imaging representative in China. “Customers will no longer have to dedicate expensive engineering resources to programming their inspection projects.” 


 


“DA 4 is exactly the product we need for our integrators who face a wide variety of vision system challenges everyday,” said Thomas Graf, general manager, Fabrimex Systems AG, a Matrox Imaging representative in Switzerland. “They can now choose the PCs and cameras they need to meet price and performance targets for any application; with the confidence they can easily design the project in record time.”
