Ready to get started? Here are some quick videos to see how it works.
1. Get iQagent Enterprise. You can get started for free here.
2. Install the software. You'll need a Windows 10, or Windows Server installation 2016 or higher. Run the iQagent installer; it will take about 10 minutes.
3. Create and deploy your first POI in our easy-to-use configuration editor, and associate live data, documents, videos, forms and other resources. Then, print the POI’s QR code and place on the equipment, or 'map' the POI to an existing equipment barcode.
4. Then simply rinse and repeat for your other equipment or process areas. you can also configure PUSH notifications and create maintenance, inspection or production forms which can be completed on any device with a standard browser.
Using iQagent, small to medium companies and OEMs reap the many advantages of digitalization, building a foundation on digital and mobile processes for future growth.
We can install, configure and maintain iQagent for your plant! Our team will work with you to develop and deploy your POI strategy, print and place your POIs, organize your digital resources and create your forms. Just contact us to set up a meeting to discuss.
iQagent was developed by industrial automation professions with over 20+ years' experience in SCADA, PLC, Networking, panel and Machine Design. We can integrate iQagent into your plant and provide services to update your plant floor automation systems if required. Just contact us to set up a meeting to discuss.
We can print your plant floor POIs on aluminum or other metals, on demand. Check out a video of the POI etching process on our videos page. After you have created your POIs in iQagent Enterprise, export them and send to us. We can work with you on specific designs and sizes. Contact Us to start the discussion!
iQagent Enterprise installs on Microsoft Windows. For testing, you can use Windows 10 or 11, however for production you should use a Server OS such as Windows Server 2016 or 2019. A VM solution is also OK to use. This will be your iQagent Server. If you will configure process values on your POIs, this server needs access to the SCADA network. You will also need a wireless connection available for the mobile devices to connect to the iQagent Enterprise server. You do not need an internet connection unless you are using PUSH Notifications.
About 10-15 minutes. Our installer will set up everything you need to get started with iQagent in your plant or lab. Check out our "Your First 15 Minutes with iQagent" Video to see the process.
iQagent can be installed locally on your private network, without any requirement to connect to the internet or external networks unless you are using the PUSH Notification feature, which will require some ports to be opened. Your friendly IT department can handle this.
No. Only the iQagent Enterprise Server will need to connect to the SCADA network; it will relay process values and resource links to mobile clients, which may be on a different network.
No. iQagent process data points are read-only by design. We don't allow writing to the PLC or SCADA from our mobile apps.
Yes. iQagent Enterprise allows you to configure 3 POIs, with a total of 10 Process values (OPCUA, OPCDA, ODBC) and 10 document links, and 1 form. This will allow you to create a pilot project or proof of concept for your application. It will run indefinitely in this mode.
Yes. We have decades of experience in process automation, including SCADA, PLC, Drives, and other automation skill sets. We can integrate iQagent in your plant and provide support for virtually any automation task. Just Contact Us and let us know what you need.

We can integrate iQagent in your plant and provide support for virtually any automation task. We have a laser etching Machine which we use to print high contrast iQagent POIs (QR Codes) from your configuration. Check out a quick video showing that process.
