a PLC! Its a PC! Its a smartphone!
No, its the
industrial controls system youve been waiting for:
Opto 22s groov EPIC the worlds first Edge
Programmable Industrial Controller.
View Intro to groov EPIC Webinar
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.
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.

Now you can collect, process, view, and exchange data where it's
producedat the edge of the network. When you work with
data at the edge, you dont have to worry about latency,
and you have one single
source of truth.
Securely share data among databases, cloud platforms, web services,
PLC systems, and other systems
and equipment, using open, modern communication standards.
Move data efficiently, decrease network load, and reduce IT reliance
by using MQTT/Sparkplug communications.
Visualize data on the controllers
integral touchscreen, an external HDMI monitor, or from any
web browser or mobile device.
Now you have new programming options:
+ Program with the field-proven, flowchart-based,
multi-chart control language PAC Control.
+ Use the IEC 61131-3 compliant CODESYS
Development System and CODESYS runtime.
+ Exchange data using the visual, flow-based
editor and runtime Node-RED, with its free pre-built nodes for
databases, web services, and more.
+ Run your own C, C++, Java, Python, or
other custom-developed application on an open, Linux-based automation
system, using secure shell access.
From plant floors to remote
sites, the edge demands industrially hardened equipment. Now
you dont have to worry about processing power in challenging
groov EPIC has:
+ Stainless steel processor and I/O chassis
with a secure, screw-down design
+ Industrial quad-core ARM processor and
+ Industrial high-resolution color touchscreen
+ UL Hazardous Locations and Class 1 Div
+ Wide -20-70ºC temperature range
+ ATEX compliance
You can rely on real-time
control and I/O from an automation manufacturer with 45+ years
of experience. Opto 22s worldwide reputation for quality
was built on solid state relays and I/O, and all their experience
is poured into the design of groov EPIC.
