Connecting PLCs to the Internet to Drive Sustainability

Posted by Janice Colmer on Oct 12, 2022 12:05:31 PM

Join us for another episode of an IntegrateLive! virtual workshop showcasing Linux-based PLCs.

Have you attended any virtual workshops hosted by the IntegrateLive! community? The IL platform started earlier this year as a collaboration that aligns integrators, vendors, and end users. Each episode brings together "changemakers in automation" who show how open source technologies work well together.

The result? An integrated solution ecosystem that you can use to solve everyday industrial problems.

Opto 22 is once again participating in this month's live demo to show the capabilities of edge controllers like groov EPIC. We'll be joined by Phoenix Contact in this 8th episode of IntegrateLive, happening October 26th at 8:00 am PDT (11:00 am EDT). Register to attend.


Demo Description: 

The PLCs of tomorrow... today! Opto 22 and Phoenix Contact will demonstrate how their Linux-based PLCs can leverage Node-RED to securely connect to web APIs and inject sustainability data into everyday control decisions. It will be another great opportunity to see what groov EPIC can bring to your projects.

As an added bonus, both tools have easy to configure web-based HMIs that will be built and used during the presentation to help you visualize the data. After the live demonstration, the solution pricing will be provided and the participants will field your questions as a panel.


As with each IntegrateLive episode, a follow up discussion will occur one week later with all the tech providers who participated in the previous week's project. They'll provide personal insights, stories, and tips, as well as answer any additional questions. Details on how to join the follow up discussion will be provided during episode 8.

We hope to see you there!
