Vision Controller Ogles Factory Floors

Matrox Imaging’s 4Sight EV6 vision controller is an enhancement of the Matrox 4Sight GPm. The 4Sight EV6 integrates a seventh-generation Intel Core processor to power more demanding multi-camera applications. It can handle multi-camera inspections efficiently and features four Gigabit Ethernet and four SuperSpeed USB ports, allowing for multiple connections to a full range of GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras. The Gigabit Ethernet ports support power-over-Ethernet (PoE).


For interfacing with industrial equipment and communicating with enterprise systems, RS-232/RS-485 ports support connections to legacy automation devices while 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.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The 4Sight EV6’s is housed in a rugged casing, making it suitable for use in 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. For more info, visit Matrox Imaging.
