Thanks for the reply mstjohn.
In response to your questions back:
1: No I do not need to use IE. (This is an easy response)
For the next answers the best way is to describe in more detail our layout here. We are a chemical manufacturing plant that has a no cell phone or wireless connectivity policy.(except for several Honeywell wireless instrument networks connected to Opto via Modbus) A large portion of our plant is CL1 Div2 and we have several remote locations that could use an Opto Display interface that meets this classification in the field. These requirements pretty well eliminate most options I can find out there except for a full blown CL1 DIv2 PC. The big benefit With Groov is you do not need a PC such as we have in one location that is under a N2 purge in a special enclosure.
2: We prefer touch screen in the field due to the harsh conditions and dirty hands that would damage keyboards and a mouse. There are extremely durable touch screens out there that meet all these conditions but do not have the embedded small operating system and built in browser.
3: I am looking for a permanently mounted touch screen “DEVICE” that has a browser, runs on 120V or 24V, and has Ethernet connectivity.
It appears your product may be at the leading edge allowing for user display interfaces in harsh environments to become more cost effective than the current options of full blown PC’s with monitors.
