Control Engineering magazine hosts its annual awards program, which highlights some of the best new control, instrumentation, and automation products.
We're excited that Opto 22's groov EPIC (Edge Programmable Industrial Controller) is once again in the running for an Engineers' Choice award!
Major new features were added to the groov EPIC controller this year, making it a repeat contender:
1 - Programming options now include IEC 61131-3 compliant languages like:
- Function Block Diagram (FBD)
- Structured Text (ST)
- Sequential Function Charts (SFC)
- Ladder Diagram (LD)
2 - For greater security in data communications, you can now connect the GRV-EPIC-PR1 to a virtual private network (VPN), and configure the EPIC as a client to connect to an OpenVPN server.
3 - For Ignition users, you can now choose Ignition or Ignition Edge platforms. Full Ignition gives you access to more Ignition modules, external access to the OPC UA server (no need for a PC!), scripting, and database support.
But groov EPIC can't get the recognition without your help!
