In PAC Display Pro, we've improved response time for URL windows and URL controls by reducing the number of web page reloads they use.
New release adds Data Store device
With the new Data Store device in groov R3.3, you can put data into groov from anywhere—like a database, another device or system—and monitor or change it in your mobile operator interface.
- For example, your company’s SQL database could place production or maintenance data into a groov Data Store for managers or technicians to see in their interface.
Just released! A major new tool for your Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) project: the groov Box with Node-RED built in.
What is Node-RED?
It's an open-source, cross-platform tool for wiring together hardware devices, databases, cloud services, and APIs (application program interfaces) with simple logic flows.
Three new updates have recently been released:
- Automatically discover Opto 22 systems on your network
- Change point status or variable values from your phone, wirelessly
- Create watch lists to monitor
A proportional integral derivative (PID) control loop monitors an input or process variable, compares the variable’s current value to a desired value (a setpoint), and calculates an output to keep the value very close to the setpoint.
Announcing groov 3.2 for the groov Box and groov Server for Windows.
In the new release:
- View system information in your groov interface. Show operators the time and date. Show groov admins the number of current user sessions, CPU usage, uptime, and more. The new System device includes these tags.
A lot of you post questions and share your expertise in the OptoForum. It's a great place to get advice from other Opto product users, explore new ways to solve a control problem, or share your sample code.
Now we're updating the forum platform to make it easier to use. Sometime in the next couple of weeks you'll see a major change.
Last OptoNews you heard about all the new features in PAC Project 9.5 and SNAP PAC firmware 9.5, both just released.
The most exciting new features are the HTTP/HTTPS server and RESTful API, giving you secure access to I/O point and variable data in your PAC controller.
These developer- and IoT-ready features are free—all you need to do is update your firmware.
But updating PAC controller firmware on a running system can pose a problem.
- Many new features you've asked for
- Support for two new I/O modules
- A brand-new HTTP/HTTPS server and REST API to make integration, data exchange, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications
