Looking for real-world examples of industrial edge computing in action? Several new case studies featuring groov EPIC and groov RIO have been added to the Opto 22 case study library over the past year.

Want to share your story?

As an Opto 22 customer or integrator, you can have your project featured in a case study that offers positive exposure for your business, products, and services.

Case studies are one of the most popular forms of engineering content. While we appreciate the chance to show the quality and capability of Opto 22 products, training, and support services, for you, a case study is a way to:

  • Create a sales tool to gain new business
  • Provide a proof-of-concept to prospective customers
  • Share design techniques and lessons learned
  • Gain recognition for implementing new technologies
  • Document your success in automation, control, and monitoring solutions

The Opto 22 Case Study Program is free of charge. While we do the work, you're involved at the level you want to be and have final say on what's published and where.

If you'd like to tell us how you're using groov products and edge technology, complete the form on this page. Someone from our marketing team will reach out to you soon!
