With groov's new Modbus/TCP support, thousands of industrial devices can now be monitored and managed using effective, scalable operator interfaces on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Modbus/TCP is a communications protocol used in level sensors, rotary encoders, drives, meters, and industrial controllers and I/O, plus thousands of other devices deployed in a wide variety of industries. Industrial automation end-users, system integrators, machine OEMs, or any authorized person can quickly and securely monitor and control these devices, as well as automation, building, and other control systems, all from a mobile device.

Acting as a Modbus/TCP master, groov communicates directly with Modbus/TCP slave devices over standard, non-proprietary Ethernet networks. No intermediary servers, protocol converters, or communications interfaces are required. This is designed to simplify hardware planning, reduce initial hardware costs, and streamline device setup and configuration.

groov is a zero-programming, web-based way to build, deploy, and view operator interfaces to monitor and control systems and equipment from mobile devices. These operator interfaces can be viewed on almost any mobile device or computer regardless of its manufacturer or screen size, including smartphones, tablets, PCs, and even smart high-definition televisions. groov can augment existing human-machine interfaces (HMIs) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems by making important information available at any time and in any location. groov is available as either the standalone groov Box hardware appliance or the PC-based groov Server for Windows software.
