Ignition Edge was revised and expanded significantly as of release 8.0.10. Deprecated pages for the plugins can be found here


Ignition Edge Panel enables standalone HMI functionality for one local client and one remote web-launched client at the edge of the network. Ignition Edge Panel gives you a choice between the Vision or Perspective modules. Ignition Edge Panel comes standard with the Ignition DesignerPanel provides up to two launchable clients for your Edge project, one local and one remote can be open at the same time.

Ignition Edge Panel includes one week of data buffering  for trending and local client fallback for mission-critical applications. The Panel plugin provides a remote terminal for operators, usually to act as a backup in case there is a network failure.

Ignition Edge Panel can send one-way alarm notifications by email through your company’s SMTP server, so you can stay alert to what’s happening at the edge of the network.

During the trial period, Ignition Edge Panel is available to use but is limited to a resettable two-hour trial window.


Visualization Module

An Edge Gateway with the Panel plugin 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 plugin 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:

  1. One the Edge Gateway go to Config > Gateway Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the Edge Settings section. 



  3. Under Visualization Module, click the Expand arrow then select the visualization module you want (Vision or Perspective). 

  4. Click Save Changes.

Running Vision on Panel

When the visualization module is set to Vision, only two clients are allowed: one local and one remote.  The Web Browser Module is included  with Vision. The following is an example of Vision running in Designer on Edge:

Running Perspective on Panel

When the visualization module is set to Perspective, only two sessions are allowed. The following is an example of Perspective running in Designer on Edge:


One-Way Alarm Notification

Ignition Edge Panel can send one-way alarm notifications by email through your company’s SMTP server, so you can stay alert to what’s happening at the edge of the network. Panel provides alarm notification in a limited form. This means the Edge Gateway has only one email notification profile and no alarm pipelines. Ignition Edge Panel includes one week of data buffering for trending and local client fallback for mission-critical applications.

Data buffer is limited to 10 millions rows, does not include database support.

To set up alarm notification, do the following: 

  1. On the Edge Gateway Webpage select Config > Alarming > Notification



  2. On the Alarming Notification screen, choose the SMTP profile and On-Call Roster
  3. Set the Alarm Criteria as desired. 
  4. Click Save.
