Video series gives you tips for using Modbus TCP devices with groov EPIC

Posted by Janice Colmer on Jan 7, 2020 9:09:43 AM

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.

For each lesson, Ben is using a groov EPIC Learning Center (GRV-EPIC-LC) along with a Modbus SATEC P130 power meter, which is measuring the voltage and frequency of the mains power in our studio. 

Watch and learn now:

Use a Modbus TCP device with PAC Control

Use Modbus TCP device with PAC ControlThis time, you'll use PAC Control to create a control program on the
groov EPIC PR1 to communicate with a Modbus TCP device.  You'll want to confirm that PAC Control is already downloaded on your Windows computer.
