Video: Activate Ignition Edge on groov EPIC

 

This video introduces you to Ignition Edge software from Inductive Automation, one of several programming choices available to you on the groov EPIC system, and it provides many options for connecting to popular PLCs.

Secure and Simplify Your PLC Systems

One of the major advantages of running Ignition Edge on the groov EPIC is you don't have to buy, configure, and maintain an industrial PC and its security, software, drivers, and licenses to connect to and act on data from these PLC systems. Because groov EPIC is secure, and built for industrial use, you can place it anywhere you need it—in harsh environments or remote locations—and start securing and simplifying your automation systems today.

Activating an Ignition Edge license means you have drivers to communicate with many PLCs, like those from:

  • Allen-Bradley
  • Siemens
  • Schneider Electric
  • Modbus-based PLCs
  • groov EPIC
  • SNAP PAC

The video walks you through:

  • Starting Ignition Edge in groov Manage
  • Logging into Ignition Edge
  • Changing the default user name and password
  • Applying the Ignition Edge license key
  • Activating your two included modules

If you haven't purchased an Ignition Edge license yet (GROOV-LIC-EDGE), no worries. You can run Ignition Edge in
2 hour trial mode on your groov EPIC as often as you like.
