More I/O options for groov EPIC

Posted by Janice Colmer on Feb 20, 2020 7:52:21 AM

Another groov I/O module was just released as the groov EPIC system continues to expand.

We've just added GRV-IVIRMS-10 to our growing list of I/O options for
groov EPIC.

As the latest addition to the family of analog voltage input modules, GRV-IVIRMS-10 provides true RMS (root mean square) voltage monitoring for 10 inputs up to 300 VAC/VDC with channel-to-channel isolation and 20-bit resolution. True RMS calculation is critical for non-sinusoidal power monitoring applications such as variable speed drives (VSD), heating controls, computers, HVAC, and solid-state components where typical peak measurement averaging can under- or over-shoot actual voltage by 5 - 40%.

MQTT: Faster, better with Sparkplug B

Posted by Josh Eastburn on Feb 18, 2020 3:30:40 PM

In part 2 of our series, we look at how to set up groov Manage and Ignition Edge for publishing with Sparkplug B payloads.

MQTT is the darling of enterprise IoT because of its efficiency, simplicity, and flexibility, which makes it ideal for use in applications that communicate with resource-constrained edge-of-network devices. After being nurtured for years within IBM, and incorporated into their smart energy, health, and utilities solutions, MQTT has become the chosen messaging protocol across all the major cloud IoT platforms as well as highly scalable applications, like Facebook Messenger.
