Firmware and software updates were released this month to help you get the most from your groov systems.
January 2021 started off with some important new releases from the Opto 22 engineering team. There are significant groov View updates that affect the groov family of products: groov EPIC, groov Box and groov Server for Windows. We've even updated the PAC Project software suite to version 10.3003. Here's a quick recap of what you need to know.
See what Opto users were talking about as we look back at last year's Top 5 posts on the OptoForums.
There is no question that the Opto 22 forums are very much alive and kicking. The past 9 months of COVID lockdown did not even make the slightest dent in the activity level.
Get an up-to-date overview of the groov EPIC system in only two minutes with this new video.
Since its release in 2018, groov EPIC has continued to evolve, with new features that make it an even stronger choice for your IIoT and automation applications.
The nation's largest rotary heat-treating facility improves reliability, alarming, operator control, traceability, and data logging with groov EPIC.
When their PLCs began experiencing regular failures and the operating system of their HMI approached its end of life, American Metal Processing (AMP) knew it was "on borrowed time." In addition, the majority of system components were not integrated or automated beyond direct motor control. What was the best road to a modern system? How could the company achieve the data integrity, tracking, and connectivity required by their customers?
Watch these new groov EPIC videos for tips on using your Modbus TCP devices with groov View, PAC Control, Node-RED, and Inductive Automation's Ignition software.
Opto 22 engineer Ben Orchard is back in the Opto 22 studio with several new video lessons on communicating to Modbus TCP devices with a groov EPIC processor.
groov EPIC firmware version 1.5.0 is available now and has several great new features and a few bug fixes. While our groov EPIC Readme file has all the technical details, here's a sweeping look at the new features I'm most excited about.

What's new at Opto 22? We've had plenty to talk about this past month, so here's a recap of product, firmware, and software updates, as well as new groov I/O module releases!
Learn about new groov EPIC system capabilities, and make sure you are using the latest versions of firmware and software to optimize system performance.
New groov I/O modules available now
Three new groov I/O modules were released this week as we continue to expand the groov EPIC system to support your application requirements. These modules include designs for mixed signal types, signal isolation, channel density, and also meet precise requirements for temperature control.
How one integrator used the remote connectivity in groov EPIC and groov View to save his systems from Midwest storms.
Rainstorms have pounded Wisconsin this season, along with much of the Midwestern United States, producing strong winds, flood waters, and tornadoes. Opto 22 field sales rep Dave Engsberg calls this area home and shared a story last week about one groov EPIC system on a particularly rainy night.
His story is a great example of what secure remote connectivity can mean for your applications: the difference between continuing operations or being submerged under water.
See what the final day of Opto 22's factory training looks like from the inside.
As the resident engineer-in-training, I’ve taken on the job of communicating to the outside world what it looks like inside of Opto 22. I’ve started off by giving you a look into the mindset and technologies at work here through the lens of our on-site training. Follow these links if you missed part 1 or part 2 of the series.
Last time I left you hanging right when we were about to get into CODESYS® near the end of Day 2. Today I make good on that teaser, as well as looking at Day 3 content (including Node-RED, MQTT, and the groov View™ graphics library) before Ben and Norma wrap up the class with a lesson on design fundamentals.
