groov View on a tablet

Suddenly, visualizing data is simple.

 


"Our operators and users LOVE this system as they monitor it remotely all the time. Our systems text or email operators when there is a problem, and the operators can start/stop samples, or whatever they choose. groov has been one of the best options we have purchased."

-William Jacob, Group Leader, Amalgamated Research LLC


 "groov was very easy to configure and set up.”

– Michael Dearing, WWTP Superintendent, Union Township Water & Sewer Dept. (Michigan)

Give your users what they need to see


From pumps and processes, to production data, to the weather, your world is full of things you need to view, monitor, or control. With browser-based groov View, you can easily build an operator interface to see and interact with exactly what you need.

Show data from sensors and automation systems, cloud applications, databases, web services, and more. Put the data and controls from different sources together in the way that makes sense for your application and your users.

An uncluttered interface

Put a full-fledged HMI on a small screen, and you won’t be able to use it.

But put in just the data and controls you really need to use, and you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it.
 

Because you develop the interface yourself, your HMI includes only what you need—and everything you need.
  • Start small. It’s easy to add another indicator or control if you find you want it.
  • Keep it simple. If your interface is used on computers or web-enabled TVs and on phones, choose which gadgets to show on each.
  • Include what’s important. Mix data and controls from any manufacturer or software maker on the same page, as needed.
  • Give your authorized users access only to screens they should see. An operator may need to control part of a process, while a manager may only need production data.

groov was designed on high-performance HMI principles, so the HMI you build is understandable and effective. At the same time, you have complete control over screen appearance.

Updates are simple, too

It’s even easier to change your operator interface, anytime you want. Just save your changes, and the interface is automatically updated for all users.

  • No need to refresh the screen
  • No user or device keys
  • No reinstallations
  • Pretty much instant gratification
 

“I love the way that I can change screens and it gets pushed to all the devices.”

– Dan Berghorst, Facilities manager, Schipper Eggs (Michigan)
