16 discrete digital I/Os
24V and TTL-compatible signaling
GigE Vision compliant
PCIe x1

The Matrox Indio can turn a PC into a true vision system. It combines a Gigabit Power-over-Ethernet port with 16 discrete real-time I/O. This card includes both GigE and industrial communication (robot/PLC) run-time licenses for Matrox MIL.

The 8 discrete inputs and 8 discrete outputs are provided for interfacing with other industrial devices. The optically isolated signals can be configured for either TTL or 24V signals. Inputs support a rotary encoder, while outputs are protected by resettable fuses. Outputs can be set in real-time, independent of the host operating system, based on event occurrence. Examples of events include an input rising or falling, timer or counter completion, and rotary encoder position.

Add your own killer software app, and the Indio becomes a cost-effective vision system.


Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) for machine vision. It powers capture, manipulation and analysis of both 2D and 3D images. MIL LITE is a software development kit that enables image capture, display, annotation, and archiving.

Design Assistant (DA) is a flow-chart based integrated development environment. Capture from any GigE Vision or USB3 Vision compliant camera. Manipulate and analyze images to make pass/fail decisions, then exchange data with a PLC or robot.
