The latest video in our developer series is a quick-start guide for setting up OPC UA on groov RIO.

Terry Orchard shows you how simple it is. In his latest developer video, learn how to set up an OPC UA server on groov RIO to accept connections from OPC UA clients and request groov data.

The new embedded OPC UA server feature is now available on all 3 models of groov RIO:

You have options to collect and publish data the way you want:

Use any of groov RIO's OPC UA Server options to communicate data with OPC UA clients:

  • Downloadable OPC UA Server Node-RED nodes give access to Node-RED messages and flows.

Keep calm and groov on!
