In this video workshop I'm going to show you how to activate your groov EPIC PR1
00:09
controller. Now you might be wondering why do I need to activate my controller?
00:14
Because the groov EPIC is an Edge Programmable Industrial Controller and
00:20
as such it can do far more than a traditional controller. Activation
00:25
enables you to get future software updates and receive automatic
00:29
notifications and access to any future firmware updates it also fully activates
00:34
groov view the HMI editor and visualization software that's built into
00:40
groov EPIC. You'll also need to activate your PR1
00:43
to manage additional licenses such as the Codesys runtime engine so that you
00:49
can run IEC 61131 code on your EPIC. The shell access license which lets you
00:56
have root access to the Linux OS or the Ignition Edge license to run that
01:02
software package from Inductive Automation. Now for how to activate. To
01:08
activate the processor you'll need to be on a computer with internet access.To
01:12
get started log on to your My Opto account on the Opto 22 website. If you
01:18
don't have an account go ahead and create one, and once you log in click on
01:26
the My Opto account. Next click on the manage groov option here on the bottom
01:32
left of this menu. This takes you to your manage groov portal. Over on the left you
01:39
can activate your groov product and activate premium factory training. On the
01:44
right you can manage all your existing groov products and any training classes.
01:48
Now if your groov EPIC is new then click on the activate button. If you need to
01:54
re-download a license file then click on the manage button. Every new EPIC unit
02:00
comes with an activation sheet. When you're activating a new system enter the
02:06
activation key that came with your controller. Next enter your groov EPIC
02:11
serial number. You'll find that on the white-label inside the front door of the
02:16
controller. Your activation key is now tied the serial number and you can go
02:25
ahead and download your license file. Now when you do this remember where you
02:29
saved it on your computer. Open a new tab on your browser and navigate to HTTP
02:38
colon slash slash and the host name or IP address of your groov EPIC and log in.
02:49
If it's your first time logging in create your first admin account by
02:55
entering your username and then the password twice. From the groov Manage
03:01
home screen click on system then license. Upload the license file that you just
03:07
downloaded and when it's done you'll see your installed licenses. Now that's it
03:15
you've registered your groov EPIC and activated groov View. You've now also set
03:21
up your My Opto groov portal with the details about your EPIC processor. You
03:26
can come back anytime to update any of the licenses you might need. For more
