Visit Opto 22's two product demo sites for a hands-on learning experience.

I know, you're always on the hunt for tools that make your life easier and your projects cooler, and I've got something you might want to check out—interactive demos for groov View and Ignition Cloud Edition.

This is a chance to dive into what these platforms can really do for your visualization and overall SCADA needs. If you’re already familiar with Opto 22 products, you’ve probably heard of groov View—an intuitive, web-based HMI/visualization software that comes standard on every groov EPIC. You may not have heard of Inductive Automation’s Ignition—a versatile industrial application platform for SCADA, MES, IIoT projects, and more.

If you want to go straight to the source, scan the QR codes below to get to each demo site. Or read on for a better explanation of what to expect.


Discover groov View
When you hop over to demo.groov.com, you're entering the world of groov View, where creating sleek, effective HMIs doesn't have to be a chore. This platform is all about making your data not just visible, but actionable and easy to understand, no matter the complexity of your project.

Examples on demo.groov.com include a wind farm, a water treatment process, and even our own OptoStudio—showcasing groov devices interacting with other PLCs and video cameras along with real-time statuses and trends. Don't just take my word for it; visit demo.groov.com and start exploring. You might just find it's the easy solution you've been looking for.



Ignition Cloud Edition—ICE Cold!
Now let's switch gears and talk about the Ignition Perspective project, hosted by Ignition’s Cloud Edition (or as I've nicknamed it, ICE). Ignition by Inductive Automation is widely known for its flexibility and wide-ranging capabilities in SCADA, MES, and IIoT. What does ICE bring to the table? The ability to simply spin up and run Ignition projects in the cloud, opening a world of possibilities. This is next-level stuff, especially when it comes to scalability and accessibility.

Visiting ice.groov.com will take you to a project running on Ignition Perspective—a web-based interface module for scalable, mobile-responsive industrial applications. On the home page, you'll find a menu with a dozen groov EPIC systems around the world, each publishing Sparkplug B data in real time to a cloud-based MQTT broker. Have some fun and poke around. Feel free to push buttons and fire some of those outputs. 


No login is required to dive into the ICE demo, so take a moment. Whether you're looking to enhance data visualization, streamline operations, or simply explore the potential of cloud-based SCADA, ICE is worth a look.
