Moxa Fanless PCs with Ignition Edge Onboard™
Save time and money when using Ignition with edge devices like PLCs, flow computers, meters, and RTUs. Fanless PCs with Ignition Edge Onboard™ are a fast, easy, and scalable way to connect these edge devices and make them accessible to your Ignition Gateway server, or to use that data in an Ignition-powered HMI. These rugged little PCs are easy to deploy and come with Ignition Edge™ already installed and licensed. Even better - you’ll save on the retail cost of Ignition Edge™.
Moxa + Ignition™
One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to get data from remote equipment is to use an industrial fanless PC with Ignition™. Moxa’s rugged and proven fanless PCs are already heavily used for edge computing applications and unmanned operation in thousands of outdoor and industrial sites. With Ignition Edge Onboard™ these units are a powerful platform for PLC data collection within a modern MQTT or Ignition™ architecture. Together, you have a highly flexible solution to collect and share data from remote devices in any location, regardless of manufacturer or vendor.
Since Ignition Edge™ IIoT includes driver support for Allen Bradley™, Siemens™, Modbus RTU/TCP, Omron™, DNP3, OPC UA, UDP/TCP, and serial devices, you no longer need to maintain separate protocol converters or proprietary communications modules for specific devices. Ignition’s™ easy-to-use tools allow you to quickly generate tags and publish those tags to an MQTT or Sparkplug™ broker. The modern publish/subscribe architecture is far easier to deploy and scale to hundreds of sites compared to traditional polling methods. Ignition Edge Onboard™ also supports one-week local storage of tag history, alarms, and audit logs, which can be optionally expanded. The Store and Forward feature ensures data will be published even if cellular coverage drops out unexpectedly.
With thousands of units already in the field making equipment data available on demand, Moxa fanless PCs are a proven commodity for industrial users. They have been specifically designed for the industrial edge, so they are completely at home in hot, dusty panels alongside PLCs and other equipment. Board-level thermal design with low power consumption allows units to support an astonishing -40 to 70°C operating temperature range without additional cooling fans or heaters. International hazardous location certifications such as Class 1 Div 2 are also available on many models.
With Moxa fanless PCs, you have full and unrestricted control of the unit via direct access to the operating system. Simply plug a keyboard and mouse into the USB ports and connect a monitor to the HDMI or VGA port. With zero proprietary restrictions or licensing fees, you are free to program the unit yourself, purchase a unit with Ignition Edge Onboard™, or install other software of your choice.
