Partnership gives you simple solutions for remote equipment, cloud connections, brownfield applications, and more.

This week has been a busy one for the Opto 22 team at the annual Ignition Community Conference, hosted by Inductive Automation. It was also the perfect time to share some exciting news with our customers and media partners about our IA partnership status. Opto 22 has now been named a Solution Partner.


Opto 22 was one of the first hardware companies to embed Inductive Automation’s Ignition software in its industrial edge devices, and we've been a long-time member of the Ignition Onboard Program. Earlier this month, Inductive Automation ended its Onboard Program and named Opto 22 to its new Solution Partner Program, reaffirming the partnership between the two companies.

As a Solution Partner, Opto 22 will continue to provide bundled solutions like our edge devices with Ignition Edge pre-installed. The groov EPIC edge programmable industrial controllers (GRV-EPIC-PR1 and GRV-EPIC-PR2) and the groov RIO (GRV-R7-MM2001-10) edge device all have Inductive Automation’s Ignition Edge® built in.

Ignition Edge is designed and optimized for edge-of-network devices. It’s a lightweight version of Ignition that comes with unlimited tags, drivers for third-party PLCs, and a variety of data-transfer protocol options. Your groov EPIC or groov RIO with Ignition Edge can do things like enable data buffering, publish and subscribe to data with MQTT, model OT data with UDTs, and more. You can try Ignition Edge out for free, then order an Ignition Edge license from Opto 22 when you're ready to move ahead with your project.

Opto 22 groov products with Ignition Edge built in are an ideal solution for:

  • Remote monitoring and control
  • Connecting to cloud applications
  • Edge computing
  • Brownfield applications
