An Edge Gateway with the Panel product can launch either Perspective sessions or Vision clients, but not both. Ignition Edge Panel comes standard with the Ignition Designer.
Licensed Edge Gateways that don’t have the product will refuse to launch either runtime. In addition, switching visualization to one module will fault the other, preventing the Designer from accessing resources to the faulted module (may require a Designer restart).
By default, the visualization module is Vision. To change the visualization module, do the following:
- One the Edge Gateway go to Config > Gateway Settings.
Scroll down to the Edge Settings section.
Under Visualization Module, click the Expandarrow then select the visualization module you want (Vision or Perspective).
- Click Save Changes.
Running Vision on Panel
When the visualization module is set to Vision, only two clients are allowed: one local client that must run on the same system as the Edge Gateway, and one remote client that can be launched elsewhere on the network.
Running Perspective on Panel
When the visualization module is set to Perspective, only two sessions are allowed. Both sessions may run on remote systems simultaneously.
