You've heard us talk about groov, the one tool that makes it easy to build an operator interface to your automation system that you can use on virtually any mobile device, regardless of manufacturer, operating system, or size.
Our new Mobile Made Simple video shows how you can monitor and control both Opto 22 and other automation systems through the same mobile app. Watch Opto 22 Engineer Ben Orchard quickly build a simple interface that includes a control tag from an Opto 22 controller and an indicator from an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC.
With no programming and no coding, you can be managing your system(s) on your device before you know it. Watch the Mobile Made Simple video.
Here's a great new visual tool to help you set jumpers on E1, E2, B1, and B2 brain boards—or read current jumper settings on boards you already have in place.
The new E1-E2-B1-B2 Jumper Configurator is especially helpful if you have questions while replacing a B1 or B2 brain board with a newer E1 or E2.
As you know, B1s and B2s have reached their end of life due to the unavailability of essential parts. E1s and E2s are field-tested drop-in replacements:
- The digital E1 replaces the B1.
- The analog E2 replaces the B2.
More information about B1 and B2 migration:

Are you as fascinated as we are by the variety of "smart" devices now becoming available—and affordable?
One of these is Belkin's WeMo switch. Plug the switch into an electrical outlet, plug in a light or appliance, and you can remotely turn it on or off with your smartphone.
Our own OptoMary couldn't resist writing a little PAC Control code for the WeMo so she could add it to her groov mobile operator interface. She explains how she did it and includes her sample WeMo flowchart in this Control "smart" devices - WeMo Example OptoForum post.
Ben Orchard wanted to try out Mary's code on his home automation system, which is based on a SoftPAC programmable automation controller. Easy! So here's Ben to show you how he added a WeMo switch to his system, which of course he monitors and controls using groov.
Read the WeMo control OptoForum post.
Watch the groovHeads video.
Don't forget: If you've developed sample code or charts you think others might be able to use, be sure to share on the Code Samples & Tips OptoForum.
