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: EPIC, MQTT, Ignition Edge, Data acquisition, Node-RED, Industrial Internet of Things, IIoT, PAC Control, I/O, Integrators, New products, Machine builder, IoT, Remote monitoring, PLCs, Internet of Things, groov, Process control, Discrete control
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.
Topics: groov, EPIC, I/O, PACs, PLCs, Data acquisition, Industrial Internet of Things, IIoT, Integrators, New products, Machine builder, OEM, IoT, Remote monitoring, Internet of Things, Discrete control, Process control
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.
Topics: MQTT, Ignition Edge, Data acquisition, Node-RED, IIoT, Industrial Internet of Things, PAC Control, PAC Project, I/O, Integrators, PACs, New products, OEM, Machine builder, IoT, Remote monitoring, Water & wastewater, groov, Internet of Things, Process control, Energy management, Discrete control, Food & beverage, PLCs, Building management, Oil & gas, EPIC
If you're a manufacturer interested in improving overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), you may find it difficult to integrate OEE with your manufacturing execution system (MES) or enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
Why? Because the IT (information technology) software systems traditionally used for MES and ERP don't interface with the PLCs and I/O systems used in production and manufacturing.
- How do you get machine data without interfering with the process?
- What's an easy way to monitor temperature in a server room?
- How can you control the flow of heating and cooling water in your HVAC system?
These are the kinds of fundamental questions that come up over and over in automation applications, and our new Automation 101 video series aims to answer them.
One of the main promises of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is advanced data analytics. As I research what exactly this means and look for use cases, one thing that comes up often is anomaly detection. At first glance, the question that comes to my mind is, "But wait, don’t we already have this?"
