Ignition Edge Enterprise
Bring the Power of the Ignition Gateway
Network to the Edge
Ignition Edge Enterprise acts as a limited remote server that synchronizes data from the edge of the network to a central Ignition server. Add edge computing to your network with the ability to remotely collect historical data, get data visualization and control, and manage your system from a central location.
Use Ignition Edge Enterprise as an Agent Gateway in a hub-and-spoke architecture with store-and-forward to a central Ignition Gateway.Architecture Diagram
Local Client Fallback
Use Ignition Edge Panel plus Enterprise to create local client fallback, with store-and-forward functionality at the edge of the network.Architecture Diagram
When acting as an Agent Gateway in a secure, high-performance Ignition Gateway Network, Edge Enterprise can share information with other Ignition Gateways through Distributed Services, including distributed tags, history, and remote alarming.
Seamless Integration with EAM
Additional features such as remote backup and upgrades, central project and restoration management, and centralized monitoring of performance and health metrics, are available on Edge Enterprise if the Ignition Enterprise Administration Module (EAM) is installed on the central Ignition server that Edge is connected to.
Edge Enterprise comes with up to one week of data buffering so it can be used to store-and-forward your data to a central server in case of network failure.
When used in tandem with Edge Panel, Edge Enterprise has the ability for local-client fallback with a one-week data buffer, providing local data visualization and limited trending in case of network failure.
Access Data from PLCs & OPC-UA Servers
For easy PLC connections, Ignition Edge solutions come with unlimited tags and are equipped with OPC UA along with Modbus, TCP, and Siemens drivers, 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.
Ignition Edge works seamlessly with Ignition1 and on Linux, any version of Windows, on macOS, and more, so you can install it on virtually any industrial device2. With support for ARM processors, Ignition Edge can also run on the latest generation of efficient edge-of-network devices.
Mix and Match with Other Ignition Edge Solutions
