Ethernet Adaptors Support GigE Vision

Matrox Imaging’s Concord PoE line of multi-port Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) adaptors with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) for GigE Vision are available in two- or four-port options. The network interface cards (NICs) simplify system configurations involving multiple GigE Vision cameras by handling command and streaming protocols as well as providing power over a single standard Cat 5e/6 cable per camera connection. They come pre-licensed with GigE Vision support in Matrox Imaging software, removing the need for an additional software feature license.


The single-cable-per-camera approach simplifies cabling between cameras and vision computers by eliminating the need for a separate power cable. An isolated PoE implementation also protects cameras, board, and host computer from damage due to electrical faults and stray current that could adversely impact camera detection.

TE connector, relay and filter solutions can help create a fine maze network of power-cabling to the lights needed for vertical farming. Their solutions are interchangeable, easy-to-install, and will last for years in variable humidity environments.


Certified for use with GigE Vision systems, the adaptors ease deployment via an integrated license fingerprint for Matrox Imaging software. Supported by both the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) software development kit (SDK) and the Matrox Design Assistant integrated development environment (IDE) for Windows, each software offers developers the benefits of different environments with the same underlying vision tools.


The Matrox Concord PoE will be available in Q2 2018. For more insights, visit Matrox Imaging.
