Industrial automation manufacturer and Internet of Things platform developer Opto 22 has announced groov 3.4, an update to its mobile operator interface system. With this new version of groov, operators can trend a lot more data over a much longer period: up to 5 years. groov’s built in trend gadget now offers an interactive type of trend that handles many more data points.
This updated version of groov offers operators the option to choose between two trend types: classic and interactive.
- Classic is the original trend for a relatively small number of data points, collected over a period of up to 7 days.
- Interactive is the new trend for much more data over longer periods.
In the trend image above, operators see the preset tabs in the upper left. This trend is for 31 days, and the tabs are preset to show 1 week of data, 1 day, or All (the whole 31 days). The tab presets change based on the overall period of the trend.
In the image, operators also see the navigator at the bottom of the trend. The blue-gray block shows the data period operators are looking at now. Operators can grab the handles on either side of it to see less or more, or tap another spot on the navigator line to see the same amount of data at a different time or on a different date—all from a mobile phone, tablet or browser window on a PC.
In both Classic and Interactive trends, operators can download individual pen data for the entire trend period to log it, just by clicking the button in the upper right of the trend. Note that in an Interactive trend, operators are downloading data for the whole trend period, not just the section in view at the moment. All users except Kiosk users can download data.
