Ignition Edge MQTT
Ignition Edge MQTT by Cirrus Link is software that turns virtually any embedded PC or field device, such as an industrial PC or even a Raspberry Pi, into a lightweight, MQTT-enabled, edge gateway¹ that works seamlessly with Ignition IIoT and Sparkplug enabled applications. It is an affordable, lightweight, limited version of Ignition with its tools and environment supplied with the MQTT Transmission Module targeted for the edge providing the connectivity to data from PLCs, RTUs
and other sensors.
Ignition Edge MQTT uses the highly efficient MQTT protocol to transmit data to any MQTT broker and supports the open source Sparkplug data-encoding topic and payload specification.

Access Data from PLCs & OPC-UA Servers
For easy PLC connection, all Ignition Edge products come with up to 500 tags and are equipped with OPC-UA along with the Modbus, Siemens, and Allen-Bradley suite of drivers. Other drivers supported by Ignition, such as DNP3, are available to add onto Ignition Edge products for an additional cost.
Ignition Edge Panel & Enterprise
There are two other Ignition Edge software products that can be mixed and matched in any combination with Ignition Edge MQTT². These are Ignition Edge Panel and Ignition Edge Enterprise. Adding the Ignition Edge Panel software component provides an embedded HMI functionality with robust Ignition features. Features include, one local client, one remote web client for mobile access, and alarming features including email notification. The Ignition Edge Panel includes a client fallback feature for mission-critical applications requiring fail safe measures.
The Ignition Edge Enterprise offers local data buffering³ functionality at the edge of the network, with a limit of up to 500 tags. If a network connection between Ignition Edge and the central Ignition server (with EAM installed)4 is severed, Ignition Edge Enterprise will continue to collect historical data for up to one week. When the connection is restored, Ignition Edge Enterprise will synchronize data back to the central Ignition server to maintain data integrity.
