If you'd like to see the new groov EPIC system in action—or talk with us about any automation project—here are two opportunities coming up soon.
Opto 22's groov EPIC® system starts shipping on May 18.
You can start ordering now!
Pre-orders will ship first, and based on early feedback from several EPIC Roadshows, this new system will be in high demand. Customers are excited about the built-in features of groov EPIC, not only for IIoT applications but for all automation and data acquisition applications.
Here are just a few of these features:
Topics: Process control, Discrete control, groov, Internet of Things, PLCs, Remote monitoring, IoT, Machine builder, New products, Integrators, I/O, PAC Control, IIoT, Industrial Internet of Things, Node-RED, Data acquisition, MQTT, Ignition Edge, EPIC
If you ship Opto 22 products (or products containing Opto 22 parts) to countries within the European Union, you need to know about our changes to the Declarations of Conformity required for shipments.
We've recently heard about possible problems with shipments of industrial hardware to the European Union. EU Customs officials are more stringently enforcing requirements for Declarations of Conformity (DoCs) documents on these shipments.
To prevent delays in Customs, we recommend you use the new CE DoCs we have created for shipments to EU countries.
In part 1 we met two communication models for computers on a network: request-response and publish-subscribe. Now let's take a look at when you might want to use each, and why.
Request-response: proven and reliable
In a request-response architecture, each client opens a direct connection to each server, because the client requests data directly from the server.
In automation, typically clients are PCs and servers are PLCs or PACs. So each PC opens a direct connection to each PLC or PAC from which it needs data.
You've been asking for more details about our brand-new groov EPIC® system for the IIoT and automation, and here they are!
We just published a part numbers list and the first several data sheets, with preliminary descriptions, specs, wiring diagrams, and dimensions. So take a look and start planning the system you want.

When we announce a new product, we want you—our loyal customers and OptoBlog readers—to be the first to hear about it.
And this isn't just one product. This is EPIC: the world's first Edge Programmable Industrial Control system—a brand-new I/O and control system built for the future of automation and designed for the way you work.
