In a previous tutorial on Ignition Edge, we utilized a Raspberry Pi as the hardware for the platform. As we built an application for one of our clients, the decision was to find a hardware solution that was adequate for a manufacturing environment. The Raspberry Pi is an excellent device but is not built to the same standards as to avoid potential breakdowns under higher temperatures, moisture, constant reboots, etc. We decided to investigate the Groov Epic Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) or the EPIC - Edge Programmable Industrial Controller.
