Union Township Water & Sewer Department had used Opto 22 systems for over a decade, so when local Opto 22 distributor OptoSolutions showed groov View to Dearing and McBride, it was an easy decision. They promptly bought three groov Box appliances and started building new operator interfaces.
Results came fast.
“Considering the limited time we had between other projects,” says McBride, “we were surprised that we were up and running so quickly with a new product.”
The groov View interfaces provide equipment status, process measurements, and much more.
“For wastewater we monitor flows, power consumption, and tank levels,” says Dearing, as well as key metrics like dissolved oxygen levels, pH, and turbidity.
“groov View,” Dearing agrees, “was very easy to configure and set up.” Dearing and McBride kept the existing PCs running HMIs, which now provide detailed information for analysis.
And because the browser-based groov View interface runs on PCs, tablets, and smartphones—in fact on most devices that use a web browser—Dearing and McBride already have the smartphone support they needed.
