Build your own custom applications using languages you know, and run them on an open, Linux®-based automation system.

If you use C/C++, Python, Java, or other languages, you can use what you already know to build custom applications and run them on the groov EPIC processor through Secure Shell access (SSH).

The SSH protocol (Secure Shell) provides a secure remote login from one computer device to another. With strong authentication options (including passwords and public key authentication), plus strong encryption protection for communication security and integrity, SSH offers secure access for both users and automated processes.

What makes it possible for an automation controller to run applications built in standard languages? The EPIC processor runs an open-source Linux OS. Opto 22's commitment to open, non-proprietary standards in automation gives you new options for control systems.  

Purchase SSH for groov EPIC (part number GROOV-LIC-SHELL) and use it with toolchains and interpreters for Java, C/C++, Python, JavaScript/Node.js and more.
