These website tools make it easy to design your automation systems and choose the parts you need.

Hey Opto crew! Today, I want to walk you through something pretty cool and super useful – our System Configurators at Opto 22. These tools are all about making your life easier when it comes to picking the right automation gear. No fluff, just the good stuff, including all the specs for the parts you'll need, and you can access them all from the Products section of our website.


Straight Talk: groov EPIC Configurator

First up, the groov EPIC Configurator. This is where you can put together your groov EPIC system. You get to pick what you need: processor, software licenses, power supply, and I/O options. It's pretty straightforward: you choose what works for your project, and the configurator lines everything up for you. Think of it as your personal checklist for building a solid automation setup.


Options Galore: groov RIO Explorer

Then there's the groov RIO Explorer. This one's for when you need to figure out your field I/O combinations. The cool part? There are thousands of configurations you can play around with. It's like having a massive toolbox where you can find exactly what you need for your IIoT or automation project.


Blending Old and New: SNAP PAC Configurator

Don't forget about the SNAP PAC Configurator. This tool is great for those who are still rocking our SNAP PAC systems. It lets you configure a rack-mounted system that still plays nice with our newer groov products. It's all about making sure you can keep using what you've got while staying up-to-date with the latest tech.


The Big Picture: groov System Configurator

Last but not least, the groov System Configurator. This is where you can put together an entire system using groov EPICs, groov RIOs, and various software tools. It's like mapping out your entire automation strategy in one go. You get to see how everything fits together in a networked architecture, making sure your system is cohesive and ready to roll. 

Although it's still labeled as being in the Beta stage, it's ready for you to use, as our web developers continue to add new features to the tool.


Wrapping It Up

So there you have it—a quick tour of our System Configurators. These tools are here to take the hassle out of picking the right automation components for your projects. We're keeping it simple, direct, and effective—the way we like it here at Opto 22.

Stay tuned for more updates and insights. Catch you next time, and happy configuring!
