To clarify the licensing issue with the Opto 22 groov EPIC and SNAP PAC driver module (Opto driver module) for Ignition and Ignition Edge:
- The Opto driver module was co-developed by Opto 22 and Cirrus Link Solutions
- The Opto driver module is not free: It is available for $200 list price from Inductive Automation or Cirrus Link
The Opto driver module is compatible with both Ignition and Ignition Edge.
NOTE: If you purchase a groov Box (GROOV-AR1) along with the groov Enterprise license (GROOV-LIC-ENT), you will receive upon request a license for Ignition Edge/MQTT from Opto 22. This license is for use with the embedded Ignition Edge software on groov Boxes, and when applied in this scenario, a license for the Opto driver module is included at no additional charge. However, for groov Server for Windows, the driver module is NOT included.
If you purchased Ignition or Ignition Edge from Inductive Automation, the Opto driver module is NOT included. All modules and pricing are available on their website (however, the Cirrus Link groov EPIC and SNAP PAC driver is not listed in the pricing table; note to IA Sales):
I hope this helps. -Benson
