Opto 22 groov RIO I/O system

Monday, 17 February, 2020 | Supplied by: Systems 22 Pty Ltd



Opto 22 has announced groov RIO, a range of intelligent, distributed I/O for IIoT and automation applications. groov RIO is said to provide the ability to quickly connect traditional wired switches and sensors directly to Ethernet networks, software applications and cloud platforms without intermediary control or communication hardware, such as PLCs, PACs or PCs.

The first shipping version of groov RIO is the GRV-R7-MM1001-10, a standalone, 10-channel, multi-signal, multifunction I/O unit for signals including thermocouples, integrated circuit temperature devices, voltage inputs, current inputs, millivolt inputs, discrete DC inputs, self-wetting discrete inputs, discrete DC sinking outputs and Form C mechanical relays. In addition, two channels provide special features like pulse counting, on- and off-time totalisation, software latching and frequency measurement. The GRV-R7-MM1001-10 is completely standalone and software-configurable through a browser-based interface.

Although many smart wireless sensing devices have begun appearing at the edge, the majority of I/O switches, sensors and transmitters use wired connections. Traditional remote I/O requires an industrial controller or gateway in order to propagate these signals to other systems, which limits their availability to enterprise consumers. By contrast, a groov RIO unit can be installed and operated independently, using its embedded software tools and protocols to share data instantly across the organisation.
