A RIO review for beginners

Posted by Janice Colmer on Sep 30, 2020 1:52:17 PM

OptoPartner SolisPLC shares an out-of-the-box experience and tutorial using their first groov RIO module.

You might remember SolisPLC's Vlad Romanov from an earlier OptoBlog post this year. He was looking for an industrially hardened platform for running Ignition Edge and became interested in learning more about the groov EPIC system. Opto 22 sent him a groov EPIC Learning Center (GRV-EPIC-LC) so he could take it for a test drive.

It went well! Vlad has since published his reviews and several tutorials on groov EPIC hardware and PAC Control software. The SolisPLC training platform has become another great resource for Opto 22 product training.

Vlad's interest and understanding of our products also led him to become a member of the OptoPartner integrator program this year. But it doesn't stop there! 

Next up, the groov RIO edge I/O module. As with groov EPIC, Vlad wanted to share and document his initial experience with groov RIO.

Now you can follow along with SolisPLC's groov RIO tutorial for beginners. Here's what it covers:

  • SolisPLC RIO ReviewIntroduction to groov RIO
  • RIO out-of-the-box steps
  • Configuring RIO basic settings
  • Configuring inputs and outputs
  • Working with Node-RED
  • Conclusion


Thanks again to Vlad for creating this new content and providing more learning tools for the Opto community.
