Production Specification

When added to a groov product (GRV-EPIC-PR1, GROOV-AR1-BASE, or GROOV-SVR-WIN-BASE), this groov Enterprise license lets you monitor and control all kinds of OPC UA-compatible systems and equipment, in addition to multiple Modbus/TCP devices, Data Stores, Opto 22 groov EPIC and SNAP PAC controllers (SNAP PAC R-series, S-series, SoftPAC), SNAP PAC I/O units, and OptoEMU Sensor energy monitoring units. The Enterprise license also lets you use MQTT/Sparkplug in Ignition Edge, which is included in groov EPIC and the groov Box. 

This groov Enterprise license is required for:

  • Using the Ignition Edge internal OPC-UA server & drivers in groov EPIC or the groov Box 
  • Using MQTT/Sparkplug in Ignition Edge in groov EPIC or the groov Box 
  • Using any external OPC-UA server with groov EPIC, the groov Box, or the Microsoft Windows-based groov Server for Windows

To use GROOV-LIC-ENT, you must also have a groov EPIC processor (GRV-EPIC-PR1), a groov Box (GROOV-AR1-BASE), or groov Server for Windows (GROOV-SVR-WIN-BASE).

An OPC UA server is required to communicate with OPC UA-compatible systems and equipment. If you have groov EPIC or a groov Box, you can use the Ignition Edge internal OPC-UA server and drivers. If you need an external OPC-UA server, we recommend Kepware Technologies' KEPServerEX.

NOTE: When activating your groov, activate the EPIC, Box, or Server first, and then activate GROOV-LIC-ENT. 

If you have groov EPIC or a groov Box, then email Opto 22 at to receive your free license for Ignition Edge.

Using Commercial Off-the-Shelf Mobile Devices in Industrial Automation

"Russian Roulette" or the "New Normal"?

Automation engineers heatedly debate the pros and cons of using standard COTS smartphones and tablets in industrial settings. Meanwhile, industry analysts like Gartner and ARC Advisory Group forecast tremendous growth in BYOD (bring your own device) usage.

Are there reasons to use off-the-shelf mobile devices in industrial automation? What are the advantages and disadvantages, and what do you need to think about before moving ahead? This white paper discusses environmental, safety, security, connectivity, and other factors to consider and includes specific advice for choosing device types suited to your industrial application.

groov Demo

A fully-configured groov project demonstrating how to build and use both simple and complex gadgets.

In the demo you’ll see how to:
• Show the value from a temperature sensor in the submersible James Cameron used to explore the bottom of the Marianas Trench
• Control a tank level and an auger in a brewery
• Trend electrical demand data for a wind farm

We’ll also look at some more complex capabilities, like these:
• Show a rotating graphic in your interface, like a compass
• Show machinery states with animated GIFs, like the turbines at the wind farm
• Indicate changes with multiple images, like the fermenter’s tank level in the brewery
