Dell IoT Solutions Partner logoIf you're looking to connect real-world signals and industrial "things" to Information Technology (IT) systems, cloud software, and mobile devices, you already know Opto 22 products will serve you well.

  • Reliable Opto 22 SNAP I/O translates the voltage and current in sensors and actuators into the digital language computers understand.
  • SNAP PACs (programable automation controllers) provide distributed control and include a RESTful API, so you can use common IT-compatible languages to access I/O point and variable data in the PAC.
  • groov puts your systems and equipment on your mobile device where you can securely monitor and control them, and even includes Node-RED for simple logic flows.

Now we're glad to announce that we've joined the Dell® IoT Solutions Partner Program. (See Opto 22's Partner Profile.)

Dell takes a pragmatic approach to the Internet of Things (IoT) by building on the equipment and data you already have and leveraging your current technology investments. Dell IoT Solutions Partners provide hardware, software, and services for IoT applications. 

Opto 22's groov Server for Windows is qualified on the Dell Edge Gateway 5100 model, purpose-built for the IoT to provide fast, responsive data solutions in extreme conditions.

In the image below, you can see how Dell and Opto 22 products work together.

groov Server for Windows runs on the Edge Gateway, along with other software programs (like Node-RED) you may want to use for your IoT application. An Opto 22 SNAP PAC System provides distributed control and direct connections through I/O modules to real-world sensors, systems, and equipment.
