Ignition Edge was revised and expanded significantly as of release 8.0.10. Deprecated pages for the plugins can be found here.
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:
Scroll down to the Edge Settings section.
Under Visualization Module, click the Expand arrow then select the visualization module you want (Vision or Perspective).
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:
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:
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:
|Enabled||Whether notification is enabled. (Default is true.)|
|SMTP Profile||The SMTP profile that will be used to distribute the notifications.|
|On-Call Roster||The Roster of users that will be notified when an alarm meets the criteria set in this profile.|
|For a Notification to be sent from this Notification Profile, its priority must be equal to or higher than the priority specified on this property. (Diagnostic, Low, Medium, High, Critical)|
|Maximum Priority||For a Notification to be sent from this Notification Profile, its priority must be equal to or lower than the priority specified on this property. (Diagnostic, Low, Medium, High, Critical)|
