Opto 22 Releases groov EPIC White Paper

May 17, 2019

Opto 22 announces the release of a new white paper, “Meet the Future: Edge Programmable Industrial Controllers,” which discusses howcontrols engineers can meet today's demands for obtaining, using and sharing data.

The white paper focuses on three main communication challenges: complexity, security, and expense. IIoT and other data-intensive automation applications typically requiremany steps and a lot of middleware: hardware, drivers, parsers, and custom software. These steps are time-consuming to set up, difficult to maintain and change, and create major security concerns. This white paper explains how a new kind of industrial controller—an edge programmable industrial controller, or EPIC—can simplify and secure automation and IIoT projects, while reducing cost and complexity. In addition to IIoT and data-based projects, EPIC devices can be also used to provide real-time control for all kinds of traditional automation applications.
 
Included application examples bring these concepts to life by demonstrating how automation professionals are using EPIC devices to improve operations.EPIC devices free youto focus on what you want to do: connect legacy systems and smart systems, get data, transform it into actionable information, visualize it when and where you want, and perform real-time control. 

Because EPIC systems are scalable, they can be applied to smaller applications and then expanded with virtually no limitation, allowing you to see how EPIC can work for you before committing significant resources. An EPIC device offers a simple, secure, maintainable, and cost-effective solution for data communication. If solving your latest challenge involves complex steps, expensive middleware, or security issues, take a look at an EPIC device. You may very well find it can shrink those steps, reduce your costs, and help provide the security you need.
