Opto 22's groov RIO - remote Ethernet I/O for industrial internet of things (IIoT) and automation applications - solves two main problems with most remote I/O today: 1. specifying all the required components (rack, power supply, bus coupler, module types, and more) is time-consuming, difficult, and requires significant domain expertise; and 2. communicating data among field devices, control systems, company software, and cloud services is complex and costly, requiring PLCs, programming, and middleware.
Powered by either 10-32 VDC power supply or Power over Ethernet (PoE) (star topology only); 10 channels of multi-signal, multifunction inputs and outputs (GRV-R7-MM1001-10 model); Analog I/O, temperature, discrete I/O, and mechanical relays; Two switched Gigabit Ethernet network interfaces for wired networks; supports star or daisy-chain topologies
Embedded web-based applications including groov® Manage, Node-RED, and MQTT USB port for adding devices like Wi-Fi adapter or USB memory drive (user supplied); Built-in security with encryption and authentication
