It’s a PLC! It’s a PC! It’s a smartphone! No, it’s the industrial controls system you’ve been waiting for: Opto 22’s groov EPIC—the world’s first Edge Programmable Industrial Controller.

What is groov EPIC?

Why groov EPIC? Simpler, less expensive, more secure

You’ve got ideas—to improve processes, reduce maintenance costs, provide better data for business decisions—but it’s hard to implement them. Learn how you can simplify your systems and make your ideas come to life.

Why groov EPIC?

EPIC hardware.  More power, more possibilities.

From state-of-the-art quad-core processor to guaranteed-for-life I/O, groov EPIC hardware has everything you expect from Opto 22’s 45 years of experience in automation—and a lot more.
Here’s why you’ll appreciate what we’ve done to the hardware.

World’s First Edge Programmable Industrial Computer

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.
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.

OPTO 22 products translate the data between computers and other machines. This translation works inexpensively because Opto 22 designed products to run on non-proprietary communication standards like Ethernet and the Internet Protocol (IP). also BACnet, OPC, Modbus, dnp, EthernetIP etc

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).

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.
