Now the groov EPIC IIOT 4 Company


The World's First Edge Programmable Industrial Computer

View Video Intro

 

groov EPIC® gives you guaranteed-for-life I/O, a flexible Linux®-based controller with gateway functions, high-resolution touchscreen, two independent network interfaces, USB and HDMI ports, and software including control programming, groov View for device-independent HMI, Node-RED for simple data flows, and Ignition Edge® for OPC-UA drivers and MQTT/Sparkplug communications.

 

"We got groov EPIC up and running in less than a day. Now when an alarm occurs, the guys get a text or email on their phones. They check out the live status remotely and make an informed decision to come in or not, saving time, money and hassle." - Gregg Martin, President, GMI Instrumentation

World's First Edge Programmable Industrial Contmputer

The GRV-EPIC-PR1 Edge Programmable Industrial Controller is an embedded Linux®, real-time controller with gateway functions. This groov EPIC® processor provides control, connectivity, data handling, and visualization at the edge of your network and is ideal for industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications or any automation application.

The modern design of the GRV-EPIC-PR1 offers a condensed and sturdy unit that features a resistive-touch, high-resolution LCD display for I/O and network configuration, trouble shooting, and system HMI. The LCD display lifts to provide easy access to the power button, power supply connectors, network interfaces, ports, and status LEDs.

Dual, independent Gigabit Ethernet network interfaces enable the processor to maintain separate connections to your back office network and your controls network.

Dual USB ports extend the capabilities of the processor so it can handle serial communications, communicate with touchscreen monitors, or connect to your network with approved WiFi adapters.

HDMI port displays configuration and groov View HMI on an external large screen, which is also useful for OEM applications where the EPIC system is built into a machine.

The GRV-EPIC-PR1 mounts on a groov EPIC chassis with a power supply and up to 16 groov I/O modules (analog, discrete, and serial) for real-time control, monitoring, and data acquisition.

Software included: groov Manage, PAC Project Basic, groov View, Node-RED, Ignition Edge®

Commission your system with web-based groov Manage, viewable by authorized users from the integrated touchscreen or from a computer or mobile device.

Program your EPIC using flowchart-based PAC Control with optional scripting.
Or
Build your own custom program with secure shell access (SSH). Future support planned for IEC 61131. (early 2019)

Easily build the HMI you need for all your systems, devices, and data using groov View. Then securely use your HMI locally on the EPIC's high-resolution touchscreen and from anywhere on any authorized computer or mobile device. You can also build a traditional Microsoft® Windows®-based HMI using PAC Display.

Create simple logic flows with Node-RED. Use pre-built nodes to exchange data with equipment, online services, and more.
Connect to Allen-Bradley® and Siemens® PLCs with the included OPC-UA drivers from Ignition Edge (a product of Inductive Automation®) (requires a groov Enterprise license).

Efficiently exchange data for IIoT projects using MQTT communications with Sparkplug payload, also provided by Ignition Edge Onboard (requires a groov Enterprise license).

The PAC Project Software Suite from Opto 22 provides all the software you need for industrial automation, process control, building automation, remote monitoring, data acquisition, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications in any field. One of four components of the SNAP PAC System, PAC Project software is fully integrated with SNAP PAC controllers, brains, and I/O, making it easy to understand, select, buy, and apply an automation system for your needs.

Easy to use and suitable for projects from simple equipment management to full industrial control, PAC Project Professional includes the following:

 - PAC Control Professional, a full-featured, flowchart-based tool for developing control programs to run on SNAP PAC controllers
- PAC Display Professional, for creating human-machine interfaces (HMIs) for operators and technicians to monitor and interact with the SNAP PAC System
- PAC Manager, a utility program for configuring and maintaining SNAP PAC controllers, brains, and I/O
- OptoOPCServer, a fast and efficient server for communication with all OPC 2.0-compliant clients
- OptoDataLink, for sharing SNAP PAC System data with commonly used databases, including Microsoft(R) SQL Server, Microsoft Access, and MySQL
- SoftPAC, a software-based programmable automation controller (PAC) designed for PC-based control

About controller redundancy: PAC Project Professional 9.0 supports controller-level redundancy. Controller redundancy is distinct from network link redundancy, which has been supported for some time.

 - Network link redundancy provides a backup network connection in case the network should fail; it provides a second communication route for the controller.
- Controller redundancy, in contrast, provides a backup controller that takes over running the strategy in the unlikely event that the first controller fails. In addition to PAC Project Pro 9.0, controller redundancy requires two identical S-series PACs and the SNAP PAC Redundancy Option Kit.

Developer and IIoT ready: Because Opto 22 SNAP PAC R-series and S-series controllers include an HTTP/HTTPS server and a RESTful API (application program interface based on the REST architecture), you can securely access I/O point and variable data in your PAC Control program using the language of your choice. Data is returned in JSON format. For complete information, see developer.opto22.com.

 NOTE: If you do not need complex network architectures, redundant controllers, support for legacy Opto 22 FactoryFloor systems, OPC communication, or database connectivity, you may find that the free PAC Project Basic Software Suite provides everything you need.

Compare PAC Project Basic and PAC Project Professional.
