Ignition IIoT

Ignition IIoT empowers your company to set up an IIoT solution on a secure MQTT Message-Oriented Middleware (MOM) infrastructure that increases data availability and efficiencies while reducing latency at the same time.
  • Cirrus Link MQTT Engine Module for Ignition: Bidirectionally communicate with edge-of-the-network devices securely via an MQTT Server.
  • Cirrus Link MQTT Distributor Module for Ignition: Adds an MQTT server to the Ignition platform that enables MQTT clients to securely connect, publish, and subscribe to data.
  • Cirrus Link MQTT Injector Module for Ignition: Emulates edge gateways and simulates live PLC data to aid in testing the functionality and throughput of IIoT solutions.

Enterprise Administration Module

Enhance the reach of Ignition with the Enterprise Administration Module (EAM).

The EAM provides a secure and intuitive way to manage many Ignition installations from one location. It is ideal for large enterprises that deploy multiple Gateways across vast geographical distances, but even companies with a few Ignition Gateways on a single plant floor can benefit from its ability to synchronize projects, monitor performance, and automate backup and recovery from a central location.
