groov EPICWhy groov EPIC?

Opto 22’s groov EPIC starts at the edge, where it collects, processes, views, and exchanges data at its source. It's programmable using flowchart-based PAC Control or any of the IEC-61131 languages.

This industrial strength system provides real-time control for a variety of industrial machines and processes. Check out the new system.

The groov EPIC processor runs on a real-time, open-source OS, industrial quad-core ARM processor. It has the features you need to control and communicate at the edge, now and well into the future.

A key feature is the integrated, high-resolution color touchscreen. This tightly integrated HMI closes the user-information loop through touch-sensitive pads, including a screen listing I/O module information. The feature-rich groov I/O is robust and guaranteed for life. A wide operating temperature range of -20 to 70 °C makes it suitable for installation in a variety of environments.

See why groov EPIC is the best choice for any industrial automation or IIoT application. Your votes are appreciated!
