Although many smart wireless sensing devices have begun appearing at the edge, the majority of I/O switches, sensors, and transmitters use wired connections. Traditional remote I/O requires an industrial controller or gateway in order to propagate these signals to other systems, which limits
their availability to enterprise consumers.

By contrast, a groov RIO unit can be installed and operated independently, using its embedded software tools and protocols to share data instantly
across the organization.

LEDs, NETWORK INTERFACES, PORTS, AND CONNECTORS
The LEDs, network interfaces, USB port, and connectors (terminal and power supply) on the groov RIO offer features to help you review the status
and health of your groov RIO, as well as connect it to a power supply, a network, and field devices.

groovRIO

New from Opto 22, the groov RIO®, a family of intelligent, distributed input/output (I/O) for industrial internet of things (IIoT) and automation applications.

groov RIO represents a first-in-class solution for its ability to quickly connect traditional wired switches and sensors directly to Ethernet networks, software applications, and cloud platforms without intermediary control or communication hardware, such as PLCs, PACs, or PCs.

groov RIO is the next step in transforming the industry for the industrial internet of things (IIoT), extending connected applications directly to traditional wired sensors and switches.

The first unit in the groov RIO family, GRV-R7-MM1001-10, provides 8 multi-signal, multifunction, software-configurable channels and 2 Form C relays, supporting over 52,000 unique signal combinations: analog or discrete, input or output.

Combined with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and embedded tools for configuration, data processing, and publishing, groov RIO makes connecting I/O to cloud IoT platforms, control systems, and databases easier than ever before.

 

Whether you need simple, fast connection to a handful of I/O or large-scale IIoT-ready infrastructure, groov RIO has the flexibility to handle a wide range of applications.

For an interactive view of what groov RIO can do for you, take a look at the groov RIO Configurator.
