Right now we are developing some new applications that need local panel behavior and storage, this thus server is a little slow and sometimes it disconnects, (we have an Ignition Gateway installed at the server).
The specifics in this project is as follow:
- HMI functionality connected to PLC, should be able to support server disconnection
- Process Data collection and storage on a server base SQL data base, works one week
I’ve been reading about Edge products and it seems something like the Hub-and-Spoke with Local Client Fallback works for my application, but i have some doubts.
- What’s the difference between using edge sync services and edge IIoT, it’s seems to me pretty similar, but also I’m not an expert in terms of the topic.
- Do I need Edge EAM installed for automatic system reconnection?, and this Edge EAM works for more than 1 edge client (If the project succeed this may be used as an standard in the factory)
Thanks in advance for your support
