What Is Edge Computing?

Two Ignition Edge Solutions

IGNITION EDGE IIOT

Ignition Edge IIoT transforms almost any field device, like touch panels or client terminals, into a lightweight, MQTT- enabled edge gateway.

It works well with Ignition IIoT and other IIoT platforms, making remote data collection and secure feedback easier. It is perfect for gathering data at the source and sending it to an MQTT server that a business system can access.

Ignition Edge Panel

Ignition Edge Panel is ideal for standalone HMIs and for  backing up local – client options during network outages.

It includes Ignition Edge IIoT and local visualisation for HMIs. Choose between Perspective (2 sessions) or Vision (1 local client, one remote client) for visualisation on the Edge Panel. It’s  excellent for creating robust,  future-ready local control ready local control systems that are compliant with Industry 4.0.
