Ignition Explained Edge Licensing

Welcome to Ignition Explained. We’re going through the Ignition Modules one by one and talking about what you get with each of them, and how Corso uses them to build a project. And we learn a few things along the way!

There always seems to be questions about what each module does, and doesn’t do. So we’re going through them one by one. If you missed the first video on Vision Module, then check it out here. Want to see more? Check out the rest of the series.

Edge Licensing

This can easily be broken down into three sections. We’re going to make the IMPORTANT NOTE that you can use any/all of these on the same machine at the same time.

Ignition Edge Panel

Local HMI with one week of data storage. Unlimited tags, which makes this extremely useful for local backups on machines. Standard drivers, one local web-launched client, one remote web-launched client, and alarming features including one-way email notification.

Ignition Edge Enterprise

This basically adds the Enterprise Administration Module functionality to the Ignition Edge Panel. If you don’t know about EAM, check it out. We absolutely love it. This allows you to connect directly into your main gateway and give you amazing functions like store and forward, remote backup, restoration management, and health metrics.

Ignition Edge MQTT by Cirrus Link

First, do you know what MQTT is? If you don’t check out MQTT and IIoT, also, we made a super awesome video of setting up MQTT on Ignition. This easily allows you to use the MQTT Broker that supports  Sparkplug (B), such as the Cirrus Link Modules that (seamlessly) work with Ignition.


We go into it more in the video above, so check that out, or feel free to give us a ring with any questions.

For most people, this is part of a much larger architecture conversation. So if we do a good job, we’ll link it here when that’s up and running. Otherwise, you’re going to need to use the search function and see what we’ve been talking about.
