Extend Your Network, Not Your Budget

Capturing and visualizing critical data at the remote edge of the network can be difficult and expensive. Ignition Edge by Inductive Automation® is a line of lightweight, limited, low-cost Ignition software solutions designed specifically for embedding into field and OEM devices at the edge of the network. With Ignition Edge, edge computing is easier and more affordable than ever, so you can extend your data collection, visualization, and system management all the way to the edge of your network.

“Having the power of Ignition extend down to edge devices in the field offers a disruptive approach to how industrial network infrastructures are designed, deployed, and managed.”

– Arlen Nipper

Co-Inventor of MQTT

Major Features

Install on Virtually Any Device

All the Ignition Edge solutions share some powerful features that make them ideal for edge computing. The Ignition Edge solutions work on Linux, any version of Windows, on macOS, and more, so you can install them on virtually any industrial device, even on a Raspberry Pi. With support for ARM processors, Ignition Edge can also run on the latest generation of edge-of-network devices.

Access Data from PLCs &
OPC UA Servers

For easy PLC connections, all Ignition Edge solutions come with unlimited tags and are equipped with OPC UA, along with drivers for Modbus, TCP, and Siemens, and the Allen-Bradley suite of drivers. Other drivers supported by Ignition, such as DNP3 and Modbus RTU, can be added onto Ignition Edge solutions for an additional cost.

Poll Data at the Source

Ignition Edge makes edge computing easy. Install Edge right onto, or next to, devices on the plant floor or in the field so you can process data as close to the source as possible. This allows you to make device data the one source of truth, improving data reliability and reducing latency.

Works Seamlessly with Ignition

Ignition Edge is designed to be installed on devices at the edge of the network. The Ignition platform is designed to work on central servers and to be deployed to multiple clients. Using Ignition and Ignition Edge together, you can build scalable and affordable enterprise-wide systems.

Ignition Edge Solutions: Mix and Match

Edge has standalone edge computing solutions for remote HMIs and MQTT data transmission as well as solutions to easily extend large-scale enterprise architectures. With three powerful Edge solutions to choose from, you can use any one of them on a single device, or mix and match them to create powerful solutions tailored to your needs.
