The world's first.
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
This is EPIC.
Collect, process, view, and exchange data where it's produced—at the edge of the network. Securely share data among databases, cloud services, Allen-Bradley® and Siemens® PLC systems, and other equipment using tools like Ignition Edge® by Inductive Automation®, Node-RED, and MQTT. Visualize data on the integral touchscreen, an external HDMI monitor, or from any web browser or mobile device.
Options for programming include flowchart-based PAC Control™and future support for IEC-61131.
Optional shell access lets you run your own custom-developed application on an open, Linux-based automation system.
From plant floors to remote sites, the edge demands industrially hardened equipment—like solid-state drives, UL Hazardous Locations approval, and ATEX compliance.
Reliable real-time control and guaranteed-for-life I/O provide the solid base for all other functions.
Ready to tackle any application.
