Matrox Indio

Industrial I/O and Communication Card

Indio cards provide industrial I/O and communication capabilities that allow users to turn any PC running Matrox Imaging vision software into a genuine vision controller. The I/O card features 16 discrete digital I/Os for real-time synchronization with automation devices. Indio also provides Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for interfacing with PLCs, automation controllers, and GigE Vision cameras equipped for Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).

Indio delivers I/O and communication capabilities to turn any PC running Matrox Imaging vision software into a vision controller. Its GbE connectivity allows for interfacing with a PLC or GigE Vision cameras via PoE.

Indio I/O cards have eight discrete inputs and eight discrete outputs that support both factory-floor and lab use. Optical isolation and resettable fuses help protect the I/Os against unintended use.

A dedicated hardware-assisted mechanism on the Indio card allows for real-time I/O management and synchronization of a vision application with automation devices.
