Good day. Ben here. With inductive Automation's Ignition pre-installed on
00:10
the groov box you now have many more options for connecting to popular PLC's.
00:15
And one of the great things about ignition edge is it allows you to
00:19
transmit data using the pub/sub architecture of the MQTT protocol. In
00:25
this video I'll walk you through setting up Ignition Edge for the very first time.
00:30
I'll cover starting Ignition Edge from the groov admin, logging into Ignition
00:36
Edge, and changing the default username and password, and lastly how to apply a
00:41
license key. Now if you haven't purchased any licenses yet remember you can run
00:47
both groov View with Enterprise options and Ignition Edge in trial mode for two
00:53
hours at a time. groov View with an Enterprise license
00:57
allows you to connect to OPC-UA servers including the OPC-UA server built into
01:04
Ignition Edge. Inductive Automation's Ignition Edge license activates Ignition
01:10
Edge in the groov box and includes drivers to Allen-Bradley and Siemens
01:15
PLC's, SNAP PAC controllers, and Modbus TCP devices. If you purchase the groov
01:21
Enterprise license you'll receive an Edge license. So that's the quickest way
01:26
to get up and running. But if you want you may also just purchase an Edge
01:31
license. Okay let's set up the groov edge appliance. Open a web browser and
01:37
navigate to your groov box by typing the following in your dress bar HTTP colon
01:44
slash slash your groov box hostname or IP address and port 10,000. Login with
01:54
your groov admin username and password, click on ignition edge menu option on
02:00
the left hand side. Here this overview page will show you the status of both
02:05
your groov Enterprise license and if Ignition Edge is running. If this is your
02:10
first time here go ahead and select the checkbox to enable and run Ignition
02:16
at startup. Click Save. Now go ahead and accept the license agreement. And Ignition
02:25
Edge is now starting up and being configured to start each time. Now, once
02:32
that's happened, go ahead and click back. Now that that's up and running we can go
02:37
to the Gateway by clicking open Ignition Edge or direct to Edge in your browser
02:43
by using the URL HTTP colon slash slash your groov box host name or the groov
02:54
box IP address and colon 8043.
03:04
Once you're here go ahead and sign in by clicking the sign in icon up in the top
03:09
right corner. The default username and password is admin and password. The very
03:19
first thing you should do is change these by clicking on configure. Then
03:24
under security select users roles, click on manage users, and then go ahead and
03:37
edit that user. Let's change the user name and check the box that you want to
03:44
change the password. And enter the new password twice. Scroll down and click
03:52
Save Changes. OK now let's log out by clicking the sign out icon up in the
03:59
very top right and let's log back in with that new username and password. OK
04:07
great now we can see that we're signed in with our new username. So now we can
04:12
go ahead and apply that license. Go ahead and click activate Ignition up in the
04:18
top right corner. If the groov box has internet access then go ahead and click
04:25
on activate online. Type in your license key and click activate. That's it. That's
04:36
all there is to it. Now if your groov box does not have access to the internet
04:42
then you're going to need to select the activate offline option and just follow
04:47
the three steps that are outlined on this page. Essentially what you're going
04:51
to do is download the offline activation request file and transfer that file to a
04:57
computer with internet connectivity, upload it to the URL shown, and then save
05:03
the returned license file, and then transfer that file to the groove edge
05:07
appliance. Now it's important to know that before you update groov admin or if
05:14
you need to reset your groove edge appliance back to
05:17
factory defaults for any reason you should first unactivate so that you
05:23
can reactivate it after the update or the reset.
05:26
You should also unactivate your license first if you need to move it to another groov
05:31
box. By an unactivating and then reactivating you avoid having to contact
05:36
Inductive to have the license reinstated. To activate click on the trash can icon
05:49
and then click yes to unactivate. And that's it.
05:55
The last thing to do is to activate the two modules that are included in
06:00
Ignition Edge on the groov Box. That's MQTT and the Opto 22 SNAP PAC driver. To
06:07
activate these two click on configure up in the top, then modules on the side
06:13
under system, scroll down until you see the two modules at the bottom of the
06:18
list. Go ahead and click on the install button next to the module that you want
06:25
to add, then confirm that you want to add that module, scroll down and accept the
06:31
license agreement. Next we need to check the box that we accept their security
06:39
certificate and we're done go back and follow the same process for the other
06:46
module. So that's it your groov box is now fully set up. Check out workshops. opto22.com
06:54
for other videos that show how to connect your groov box to an
06:59
Allen Bradley PLC and display its data on your mobile ready groov screen or how
07:05
to send data to an MQTT broker. Till next time cheers mate.
