Now you can, on your own schedule.
- Learn how to simplify your automation and IIoT projects.
- See how to improve security and performance, with minimal reliance on IT personnel.
The convergence of Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) systems may help manufacturers embrace new service offerings using web-based business models.
Join Martindale Associates and Opto 22 on June 27th for an all-new webinar. Learn how to simplify your automation and IIoT projects and improve security and performance, with little reliance on IT personnel.
Join Opto 22 and OptoPartner/Distributor Kiser Controls in Chicago, May 24, 2018, for an introduction to the new groov EPIC® automation system.
groov EPIC combines guaranteed-for-life I/O, real-time control, local and remote HMI, and industrial/IT data exchange in a single compact, industrial package.
Tech Briefs brings the latest technical news from NASA, the military, federal laboratories, universities, and commercial companies to automation designers and engineers.
If you'd like to see the new groov EPIC system in action—or talk with us about any automation project—here are two opportunities coming up soon.
The 22nd Annual ARC Industry Forum in Orlando this February focused on digitizing and securing industry and infrastructure.
Topics: groov, Internet of Things, Remote monitoring, IoT, PACs, New products, Events & conferences, API, REST API, REST, IIoT, Industrial Internet of Things, Node-RED, Data acquisition, Ignition Edge, EPIC
Opto 22's groov EPIC® system starts shipping on May 18.
You can start ordering now!
Pre-orders will ship first, and based on early feedback from several EPIC Roadshows, this new system will be in high demand. Customers are excited about the built-in features of groov EPIC, not only for IIoT applications but for all automation and data acquisition applications.
Here are just a few of these features:
Topics: Process control, Discrete control, groov, Internet of Things, PLCs, Remote monitoring, IoT, Machine builder, New products, Integrators, I/O, PAC Control, IIoT, Industrial Internet of Things, Node-RED, Data acquisition, MQTT, Ignition Edge, EPIC
Just released! groov View R3.5a brings a new feature you've been waiting for: you can now connect to SNAP PAC I/O units directly, instead of going through a controller strategy, and use their tags in your groov View operator interface.
In addition, the new release has been optimized to improve performance and responsiveness, especially when you have a large number of users.
And all updates to your groov View interface are now automatically pushed out to users. No need to refresh screens.
Here's a closer look at these and other new features. (For details on bug fixes, see the groov View Readme.)
In part 1 we met two communication models for computers on a network: request-response and publish-subscribe. Now let's take a look at when you might want to use each, and why.
In a request-response architecture, each client opens a direct connection to each server, because the client requests data directly from the server.
In automation, typically clients are PCs and servers are PLCs or PACs. So each PC opens a direct connection to each PLC or PAC from which it needs data.
