Design World highlights groov Box for mobile operator interfacesIn a new video on YouTube, Design World Managing Editor Leslie Langnau introduces the second-generation groov Box—fanless, compact, and industrially hardened.

The video highlights how you would use the new groov Box and includes a short getting-started piece by our own Ben Orchard.

Ben shows how to set up the groov Box, link to an OPC-UA tag server and an Opto 22 SNAP PAC controller, and build a simple interface—all in just about three minutes.

The groov interface can be used on a wide variety of mobile devices as well as laptops and PCs. In fact you'll see Ben turn off the lights using his Android smartphone and turn them back on using an iPad. Pretty cool.
