groov Server for Windows lets you serve groov View, Opto 22’s web-based operator interface tool, from a Microsoft Windows PC.
(NOTE: If you are serving groov View from a groov EPIC processor, you do not need to purchase this product. groov View is included with your purchase of an EPIC.)
groov View gives you visualization into your system with an HMI that is simple, mobile, and connects easily to automation systems, software, databases, and devices of all kinds.
You build your groov View interface—your own custom application—using any computer with a web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE10). No programming or coding is required. You can mix devices, equipment, and data from different sources in the same interface if you wish. There are no user or tag limits. The pages you build are served to authorized users through groov Server for Windows.
The interface you build can be used on any brand computer or device with a web browser—even a web-enabled HDTV. Or you can view the same interface on an Apple or Android mobile device with the free groov View app.
