On-the-rack processor for the groov EPIC system.

Production Specification

The GRV-EPIC-PR1 Edge Programmable Industrial Controller is an embedded Linux®, real-time controller with gateway functions. This groov EPIC® processor provides control, connectivity, data handling, and visualization at the edge of your network and is ideal for industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications or any automation application. 

The modern design of the GRV-EPIC-PR1 offers a condensed and sturdy unit that features a resistive-touch, high-resolution LCD display for I/O and network configuration, troubleshooting, and system HMI. The LCD display lifts to provide easy access to the power button, power supply connectors, network interfaces, ports, and status LEDs.
  • Dual, independent Gigabit Ethernet network interfaces enable the processor to maintain separate connections to your back office network and your controls network.
  • Dual USB ports extend the capabilities of the processor so it can handle serial communications, communicate with touchscreen monitors, or connect to your network with approved WiFi adapters.
  • HDMI port displays configuration and groov View HMI on an external large screen, which is also useful for OEM applications where the EPIC system is built into a machine.
The GRV-EPIC-PR1 mounts on a groov EPIC chassis with a power supply and up to 16 groov I/O modules (analog, discrete, and serial) for real-time control, monitoring, and data acquisition. 

Software included: groov Manage, PAC Project Basic, groov View, Node-RED, Ignition Edge®
  • Commission your system with web-based groov Manage, viewable by authorized users from the integrated touchscreen or from a computer or mobile device.
  • Program your EPIC using flowchart-based PAC Control with optional scripting. Or build your own custom program with secure shell access (SSH). Future support planned for IEC 61131. 
  • Easily build the HMI you need for all your systems, devices, and data using groov View. Then securely use your HMI locally on the EPIC's high-resolution touchscreen and from anywhere on any authorized computer or mobile device. You can also build a traditional Microsoft® Windows®-based HMI using PAC Display.
  • Create simple logic flows with Node-RED. Use pre-built nodes to exchange data with equipment, online services, and more.
  • Connect to Allen-Bradley® and Siemens® PLCs with the included OPC-UA drivers from Ignition Edge (a product of Inductive Automation®) (requires a groov Enterprise license).
  • Efficiently exchange data for IIoT projects using MQTT communications with Sparkplug payload, also provided by Ignition Edge Onboard (requires a groov Enterprise license).

groov EPIC User's Guide

This user's guide shows you how to assemble, initialize, configure, and maintain a groov EPIC system. It explains how to mount the power supplies, processor, and groov I/O modules onto the groov chassis, the first configuration steps to take after you turn it on, and how to keep the system up-to-date through system updates.

groov View User's Guide

This user's guide shows you how to set up, configure, and use groov View to easily build an operator interface to monitor, control, and see data from your automation systems, equipment, databases, and software.

The web-based operator interface you build can be securely viewed by authorized users on any brand computer or mobile device.

Modbus/TCP Protocol Guide

This document shows you how to set up communication between Ethernet-based Modbus systems (using Modbus/TCP) and the groov EPIC system or SNAP PAC System.

In addition to groov I/O and the SNAP PAC System, the guide also covers Modbus/TCP communication with older Opto 22 Ethernet-based devices, including SNAP Ethernet, SNAP Simple, and SNAP Ultimate I/O; and E1 and E2 brain boards.

Case Study: FCI Watermakers

Question: What do a yacht owner, an island resort, and a Las Vegas chef have in common?
Answer: They all need a reliable source of good fresh water—and they all count on FCI Watermakers to
provide it.

Read this case study to see how FCI Watermakers, an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), designs large-scale seawater reverse osmosis and other water systems to provide the water quality their customers need. Hint: They use Opto 22's groov EPIC (edge programmable industrial controller) and I/O to control processes within their systems and provide a custom HMI viewable both locally and remotely.
