OnLogic IGN800 is an industrial edge gateway based on the Raspberry Pi CM4 module pre-loaded with the Ignition Edge HMI, SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition), MES, and IIoT software platform from Inductive Automation.
The hardware is not exactly new, as the Onlogic IGN800 is simply the OnLogic Factor 201 industrial PC introduced earlier this year, but that ships with Ignition Edge in order to provide a cost-effective solution for automation projects.
OnLogic IGN800 specifications:
- SoM – Raspberry Pi CM4 with Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Arm Cortex-A72 processor @ up to 1.5 GHz, up to 8GB LPDDR4 RAM, up to 32GB eMMC flash
- Additional storage – Optional M.2 SATA SSD (See Expansion section)
- Video Output – HDMI port up to 4Kp60
- 2x Gigabit Ethernet LAN (Optional PoE PD Input) via Realtek RTL8153 controller
- Optional WiFi/Bluetooth module on Raspberry Pi CM4 module + 3x antenna holes
- Optional 4G LTE wireless module via M.2 socket
- USB – 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port, 2x USB 2.0 ports, 1x USB-C management port
- Serial – 5-pin terminal block with RS-232/422/485
- 1x M.2 3042/3052 B-key socket (USB 3.0)
- 1x M.2 2280 B-key socket (SATA)
- Misc – Reset button
- Power Supply
- 8~24 VDC via 3-pin terminal block
- Optional PoE PD 802.3at
- Dimensions (WxHxD) – 102.5 x 129 x 38 mm (Aluminum enclosure)
- Temperature Range – -20° ~ 60°C
- Humidity – 10% – 95% (non-condensing)
In combination with the Ignition Edge software, the IGN800 allows users to collect and analyze their data at the edge and “consolidate disparate systems into a customizable dashboard”. Some typical use cases include monitoring and controlling facilities, grids, or entire municipal infrastructures.
The Ignition IGN800 starts at $449.50 with a Raspberry Pi CM4 SoM equipped with 4GB RAM and no eMMC flash, plus a 64GB M.2 SATA SSD, or almost $100 extra compared to an Onlogic Factor 201 industrial PC with the same hardware configuration in order to pay for the Ignition Edge license that usually starts at $200 if purchased separately. Individuals and educational institutions can also use the Ignition Maker Edition for free on a Raspberry Pi or other hardware, as long as it is for personal projects or education only, and not for commercial endeavors.
The Ignition IGN800 arm computer is capable of handling up to 20,000 real-time tags, and if your application requires more performance, OnLogic also launched the Intel Celeron J3455-based IGN610 that can process up to 66,573 real-time tags, and the IGN210 with an Atom x6000E Elkhart Lake processor that can handle up to 192,380 real-time tags.
