Ignition Edge Sync Services
Easily Synchronize Data from the Edge of Network
Ignition Edge Sync Services acts as a limited remote server that synchronizes data from the edge of the network to a central Ignition server. It’s ideal for accessing Sync Services, remote tags and alarm pipelines, tag history sync, alarm history sync, and audit log sync.
Hub-and-Spoke with Store-and-Forward
Use Ignition Edge Sync Services as a limited remote server in a hub-and-spoke architecture with store-and-forward to a central Ignition Gateway.Architecture Diagram
Ignition Edge Sync Services, using Ignition's Gateway Network, can share information with other Ignition Gateways through Distributed Services, including distributed tags, history, and remote alarming.
Ignition Edge Sync Services 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.
OPC UA Connectivity
For easy PLC connections, all Ignition Edge solutions come with unlimited tags and are
equipped with native drivers. Ignition Edge acts as an OPC UA server when used with the
included Ignition native drivers and can connect to an OPC UA server as an OPC UA client.
External access (from a third party) to Ignition Edge’s OPC UA server requires Edge IIoT.
