Added to the groov View software for web and mobile visualization, and the open-source Node-RED development environment, the new release offers tools for edge deployment in industrial environments. These new embedded capabilities are made possible through partnerships with technology providers Inductive Automation and Cirrus Link Solutions, and are part of the Ignition Edge Onboard program. A typical application would be gathering data from plant floor devices or from remote plants. A customer places groov near a machine or process, uses the built-in drivers to connect to existing control systems, analyzes the data, and publishes the results back to a central server or broker on premises or in the cloud. Applications like Ignition Enterprise or any MQTT/Sparkplug-compliant software can subscribe to the data. Other applications include showing Allen-Bradley CompactLogix variables on a smartphone, sending periodically machine operational data to a central location for predictive analysis and machine learning; gathering of SCADA data over a cellular or other bandwidth-constrained network, or transferring energy use and HVAC status data to a cloud database for historical logging.
