Good news! Our friends at Inductive Automation recently made all the presentations from the 2023 Ignition Community Conference available for public viewing.
If you weren't able to join us last September in Folsom, California, then now's your chance to see one of the most attended sessions of the conference.
In a fast-paced 35-minute demo, Opto 22's VP of Product Strategy, Benson Hougland, walks you through how to use groov EPIC, Ignition Edge, and Ignition Cloud Edition to quickly create scalable, high-performance, cybersecure architectures for democratizing your OT system’s data: Elevate your OT Data Securely to the Cloud.
We're already a month into the new year and our calendar of events is filling up quickly. Opto 22 engineers, sales and marketing staff will be in attendance at various trade shows, conferences and participating in virtual webinars throughout the year.
Take a look at what's available online or in your area and plan to join us at one or more of these industry events. You'll have several opportunities to see live demos of groov EPIC and groov RIO.
Here's what's on the schedule so far.
During the year 2020, dozens of companies worldwide worked to develop vaccines for the pandemic-causing virus COVID-19. Biofabri, a subsidiary of Spanish international biopharmaceutical group Zendal, became responsible for industrial production of the antigen vaccine for most of Europe.
Their task was daunting. Somehow they would have to construct and automate a new fill-and-finish facility during a worldwide pandemic, in a country with one of the strictest lockdowns. Logistics were soon in chaos, with even basic supplies unavailable. Zendal had a variety of older equipment in place with incompatible controllers and individual HMIs. They also had no control over the make or model of PLCs that package suppliers would provide with new equipment.
And towering over all other problems were issues of cybersecurity.
The value of in-person, instructor-led training at the Opto 22 factory and headquarters is evident after working with another great class of Opto students this week—all eager to become groov EPIC experts. And kudos, once again, to the team of Opto trainers who devote their time to developing a class curriculum that is beneficial for all levels of engineering and types of applications.
This month, students made the trip to California from Texas, Tennessee, Florida, Massachusetts, and parts of central California to attend and spend 4 days immersed in the groov EPIC system—learning all its features, capabilities, and programming options.
If you haven't attended training yet, we hope you can join us at one of our upcoming classes.
