The New Ignition Edge

Share

Edge computing, or the “Edge”, plays a significant role in Industry 4.0 by enabling real-time decision-making, reducing latency, and data processing at the source. It refers to computing infrastructure that brings computational power and intelligence closer to where data is generated, typically near the network’s edge.

A Stronger and Simpler Ignition Edge

Capturing, processing, and visualising critical data at the remote edge of the network has never been more accessible or affordable. By adding the updated line of Ignition Edge® products to field and OEM devices, you can extend your data collection with unlimited tag and device connections, see your data at the edge with state-of-the-art visualisation tools, run scripts, interface with applications, and extend your system to the edge of your network with data syncing and system management.

We’re excited to introduce the new Ignition Edge, with a streamlined product line to enhance your IIoT and edge-of-network capabilities. Below are the latest offerings and how to upgrade your Ignition Edge software.
