groov RIO - remote Ethernet I/O for industrial internet of things (IIoT) and automation applications
Opto 22's groov RIO solves two main problems with most remote I/O today:
First, all the required components (rack, power supply, bus couplers, module types and more) must be specified. This is time consuming, difficult, and requires significant expertise.
Then, data communication between field devices, control, systems, enterprise software and cloud services is complex and costly, requiring PLCs, programming and middleware.
groov RIO revolutionizes remote I/O by solving both problems:
One component: a single part number provides built-in multi-function, multi-signal I/O; an I/O processor; Power over Ethernet; and mounting without the need for a rack or enclosure in a compact industrial package.
Built-in processing and communications. Web-based configuration, flow logic software, efficient data communications, methods and Multiple Operations Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) protocols simplify any IIoT or automation application.
OPTO22 has been production market leader in the fields of automization and controlling for over 30 years. OPTO22 is located in Temecula, USA and offers E/A switch modules and innovative, Ethernet based modular PAC/SPS control systems.
With easy to learn programming language using flow diagrams combined with standard language, all systems can be put into operation quickly, easily and effectively. The powerful visualization software is available royalty-free. Company-wide data exchange is implemented using standard IT protocols. Solutions for data visualization, on standard web browsers, even mobile versions, round off the complete system.
