Meet more groov EPIC graduates

Posted by Janice Colmer on Jul 31, 2023 2:01:40 PM

Another full class of students learned about groov EPIC in the July 2023 Premium Factory Training class.

Another full class means word is getting out, and classroom PLC training is in demand. Are you considering a system upgrade or just curious how groov EPIC compares to other systems you've used?  Do you need help configuring and programming hardware and software for your industrial automation or IIoT application? 

Then consider spending a week with us at Opto 22 headquarters learning all the programming options and features of groov EPIC, the Edge Programmable Industrial Controller.

July's group of students represented a variety of industries and provided some great feedback on their training experience. Take a look at what they said.

Here are some comments taken directly from the July class training surveys:

  • Fantastic team, and fantastic training material! You guys know what you're doing. Keep it up!
  • Very engaged and knowledgeable presenters. Great pace. Enjoyed the factory tour. I like that there was room for questions. The topics were easy to follow.
  • I wish I took this class before I got my hands on my groov RIO. This has made me much more aware of the product and what I need to do to move forward.
  • I enjoyed the training, and I think it did a very good job explaining all of what the EPIC can do, how each application fits with the others, and why it is important that the EPIC does all that it can.
  • Wonderful experience here at OPTO. I have attended several trainings dating back to Factory Floor. 


So why else should you attend? 

When you're not learning new technologies like MQTT, Node-RED, Ignition, or CODESYS, you'll also be treated to some great lunchtime meals, and you can even play a quick round of golf on the putting green during break time.

You'll also get a personal tour of Opto 22's factory and see how and where groov EPIC is built. 


Take a look at the 2023 training class schedule, and register to attend one of the 4 remaining classes we're hosting in 2023.

Your four-day groov EPIC System Premium Factory Training includes:

  • Hands-on instruction for the groov EPIC system (Edge Programmable Industrial Controller). Just as the acronym describes, you will learn how to collect, process, view, and exchange data at the edge, explore new programming options, and use industrially hardened equipment to control applications in real time.
  • System components and configuration, networking capabilities, diagnostics, troubleshooting, and communication methods that you can apply to your industrial automation application to build solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
  • Breakfast snacks and full lunch every day
  • Opto 22 T-shirt
  • Duffel bag with gifts inside

Prerequisites: Students must have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows, but no prior Opto 22 knowledge is required.

Class starts with lunch on Monday at 12:00 noon and instruction starting at 1:00 p.m., through 5:00 p.m. On Tuesday and Wednesday, class starts promptly at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Thursday's class starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends with lunch served at 12:00 p.m.

Each class is limited to 12 students and costs $995 per seat. See Class Details for the complete course description. Some course topics you can expect: 

  • Select, install, and connect hardware and field devices
  • Initialize and configure the groov EPIC processor
  • Create control programs and choose programming functions
  • Create HMIs
  • Collect data from cloud services, databases, and other PLCs

We hope to see you soon!
