groov RIO Learning Center 

Production Specification

Ready to learn about or experiment with groov RIO®, Opto 22's Ethernet-based edge I/O module?

groov RIO revolutionizes remote I/O by offering hundreds of thousands of unique, software-configurable I/O combinations in a single, compact, PoE-powered industrial package with web-based configuration, commissioning, and flow logic software built in, plus support for multiple OT and IT protocols.

The groov RIO Learning Center is packed with fully-functioning groov RIO hardware and software. The included processor is a GRV-R7-MM1001-10.

NOTE: If you're interested in exploring groov RIO MM2 (GRV-R7-MM2001-10), which adds Ignition and Ignition Edge® software from Inductive Automation®, see the GRV-RIO2-LC Learning Center instead.

The Learning Center is ideal for pilot projects, Proofs of Concept (POCs), demonstrations, or simply having a fully working system on your bench or desk for development.
