Introducing groov RIO: I/O for the IIoT™

Intelligent, multi-signal, multifunction, PoE-powered, remote Ethernet I/O for IIoT and automation applications


groov RIO is revolutionizing remote I/O by offering 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.

One device with over 61260 I/O combinations

Rio tápellátás



Powerthe unit and connected I/O with 802.3af PoE Class 0 switches, or a 10-32 VDC power supply.

Rio usb port

USB port


A USB host port, which can be used to connect additional devices
like a Wi-Fi adapter, a USB memory stick, or a USB-to-serial
adapter (none included).

Rio multifunkciós csatornák

10 software-configurable channels:

  1. Channels 0-3 support 10 different kinds of I/O circuits: analog input sensing (V/mV/mA), temperature input sensing (ICTD/TC/thermistor), simple discrete input sensing, powered switch discrete input sensing, and discrete output control.
  2. Channels 4-7 support 9 different kinds of I/O circuits: analog input sensing (V), temperature input sensing (ICTD/thermistor), simple discrete input sensing, powered switch discrete input sensing, analog output control (V/mA), and discrete output control.
  3. Channels 8 and 9 are Form C relays, so they support either normally-open or normally-closed loops.

groov Manage - a web app that gives you command
center-like access to your groov RIO - for I/O configuration and many other tools.

Rio biztonság



Protect with built-in security, including configurable firewalls, encryption, user accounts, LDAP centralized user management, and VPN client

Rio I_O funkciók

I/O features


Run optional distributed features independently on the processor, including counting, thermocouple linearization, digital totalizing, minimum/maximum values, ramping, and up to four PID control loops.

Rio Integráció



 I/O data directly with databases, HMIs, SCADA systems, cloud services, and IoT platforms, using embedded Node-RED.

Rio I_O switch



Two switched Gigabit Ethernet network interfaces that you can
connect in a daisy-chain configuration or in a standard star

Rio Vizualizáció



Develop user interfaces (UI) with Node-Red UI nodes and serve
them directly from RIO to any mobile or web-based device.

Rio Komm. protokollok



groov RIO supports the time-tested and pervasively implemented
protocols developed for OT, as well as IT-friendly protocols that are gaining traction: Modbus®/TCP, OptoMMP, MQTT, REST API

Rio industrial

lndustrial design


groov RIO can operate through a wide range of operating temperatures (-20 to 70 °C) and with its industrial design, it can be used in a large variety of applications and operating environments. groov RIO is UL/cUL listed and compliant with the ATEX, Low Voltage, and EMC CE directives.
