Opto 22's groov 3.0 is an update to the platform with added features like email event notifications, enhancements to the interface development environment, and options to select the platform most suitable for the user. Courtesy: Opto 22Opto 22's groov 3.0 is an update to the platform with added features like email event notifications, enhancements to the interface development environment, and a simulated tag database. groov is a mobile operator interface system that connects machines, equipment, and control systems with mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. The enhanced event notification allows industrial automation end-users, system integrators, and machine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to receive immediate email messages when a connected machine or system needs attention. Email messages can also be customized and sent to groups or individuals and messages can include equipment data, time/date stamps, and real-time visual data.

Additional features in groov 3.0 include an improved build interface development environment, where it’s easier to position, align, and group on-screen objects. Another feature is a data simulator that provides simulated dynamic values for onscreen gadgets. This feature can help test onscreen gadgets or simulate tags and variables during screen development. 

groov 3.0 also offers the users the ability to select the right groov platform for an application. Platform choice depends on how many Modbus/TCP-ready devices or SNAP PAC controllers will be connected to groov, and if an OPC UA server will be used.

The platforms are groov Solo, which connects to one Modbus/TCP device or one SNAP PAC controller and is useful for machine builders and OEMs. groov Plus connects to multiple Modbus/TCP devices and SNAP PAC controllers and is ideal for multi-machine or system applications. groov Enterprise connects to machines, PLCs, and other equipment and systems that support OPC UA, in addition to multiple Modbus/TCP devices and SNAP PAC controllers.
