OBSOLETE groov Plus upgrade to Enterprise License

Please call (800) 321-6786 to order.


Production Specification

GROOV-LIC-OPE provides the groov Enterprise license when added to an existing groov Plus license.

If you have already purchased groov Plus (GROOV-LIC-PLUS) in addition to either the groov Box appliance (GROOV-AR1-BASE) or groov Server for Windows (GROOV-SVR-WIN-BASE), this GROOV-LIC-OPE moves you up to an Enterprise license.

groov Enterprise lets you monitor, control, and share data with all kinds of OPC UA-compatible systems and equipment, plus the multiple Modbus/TCP devices, Data Stores, Opto 22 SNAP PAC controllers, and SNAP PAC I/O units you are already using in your groov View interface.

groov Enterprise links you to a wide variety of industrial automation, building automation, energy management, and other systems. An OPC-UA server is required. You can use either the built-in Ignition Edge OPC-UA server in the groov Box, or an external server such as Kepware Technologies' KEPServerEX

For more information on groov, see groov System.

Compare groov licenses.

*** NOTE: This product is obsolete as of May 18, 2018. To obtain a license to communicate with OPC UA-compatible systems and equipment, purchase a groov Enterprise license (GROOV-LIC-ENT). ***

An OPC UA server is required to communicate with OPC UA-compatible systems and equipment. You can use either the built-in Ignition Edge OPC-UA server in the groov Box or an external server. For an external server, we recommend Kepware Technologies' KEPServerEX.

NOTE: When activating your groov, activate the Box or Server first, and then activate the license.

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.

Setting Up groov Mobile Apps Technical Note

Opto 22's free groov View apps for iOS and Android allow you to use View for one or more groovs on your smartphone or tablet in full-screen mode without the address bar, toolbars, and other things you see in a browser. To get a groov View app for your mobile device, go to your app store and search for “groov View.”

This technical note describes how to set up the groov App on your mobile device.

Ignition Settings for groov Technical Note

NOTE: If you are using the internal Ignition Edge OPC-UA server and drivers in the groov Box, do not use the instructions in this technical note. See the groov Box User's Guide instead.

This short technical note provides Opto 22’s recommended settings in Inductive Automation's Ignition OPC-UA Server for successful communication with groov.

Building an HMI that Works: New Best Practices for Operator Interface Design

Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) are requiring a new standard in today’s automation industry. This white paper takes a look at the industry's new best practices for building an effective HMI. You'll find out what's wrong with most HMIs and why, see some of the research behind those that work, and learn specific ways to make yours better.

Whether you're starting an HMI from scratch or thinking about adding to or changing yours, the information in this paper will help you build an HMI that increases productivity, saves downtime, and avoids accidents.

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
