CODESYS on groov EPIC: real applications, real talk

Posted by Janice Colmer on Mar 22, 2021 9:54:21 AM

Watch the CODESYS in the field presentation from this month's CODESYS Tech Talk.

In case you missed the Spring CODESYS Tech Talk virtual event, we have an important session to share with you. OptoPartner Trimax joined us in presenting a current wastewater application that uses the CODESYS runtime engine on groov EPIC.

CODESYS on groov EPIC means you can program the EPIC for industrial control and monitoring using any familiar
IEC 61131-3 compliant language. It's an important feature we like to talk about and why we were eager to share this story at this year's Tech Talk.

Benson Hougland kicks things off with an overview of Opto 22 and the groov EPIC product line. Senior Application Engineer Garrick Reichert then takes over to walk you through the steps you need to follow to create a control program for EPIC using CODESYS. You can also follow these steps at your own pace using the CODESYS lessons on OptoU.

Finally, don't miss David Tye's portion of the presentation. As a Trimax Senior Automation Engineer, David has a wealth of knowledge and expertise to share. You'll see a detailed example using CODESYS on EPIC for a wastewater project in the County of Maui, Hawaii. He explains why groov EPIC checked all the boxes on what this project needed:

  • Reliable and industry proven PLC
  • IEC 61131-3 programming software
  • Large selection of I/O modules
  • Ability to communicate over industrial ethernet protocols
  • SCADA communications
  • Outstanding technical support

Could CODESYS and groov EPIC be your solution too?
