Ignition Edge Compute
Bringing Intelligence to the Edge
Ignition Edge Compute allows you to run scripts and create REST APIs for interfacing with third-party applications from the edge. It’s ideal for adding powerful intelligence and web services to your edge-of-network device.
Intelligence at the Edge of the Network
Unlock the power of scripting on your edge-of-network device. Ignition Edge Compute gives your edge devices the ability to run scripts without the need to depend on the central server.
Leverage Web Services
Ignition Edge Compute includes features which allow you to program directly against the web server in the Ignition Edge Gateway. This will give you the ability to host web pages and create full-fledged REST APIs allowing external systems to interact with the Ignition server.
OPC UA Connectivity
For easy PLC connections, all Ignition Edge solutions come with unlimited tags and are
equipped with native drivers. Ignition Edge acts as an OPC UA server when used with the
included Ignition native drivers and can connect to an OPC UA server as an OPC UA client.
External access (from a third party) to Ignition Edge’s OPC UA server requires Edge IIoT.

With support for ARM processors, Ignition Edge can also run on devices like Raspberry Pi or the latest generation of efficient edge-of-network devices.
