Ignition has been used to create industrial automation software systems covering the full spectrum between HMI, SCADA, MES, and industrial middleware. Our unique web and database-centric architecture lets the software be used across dozens of industries worldwide. Ignition is written in 100% Java, making it the first mature cross-platform HMI, SCADA, MES package available on the market.Top-to-bottom support for all major operating systems opens new dimensions of architecture flexibility.Companies are now free to use the system they want - not the system they're constrained to by outdated technology.
Data analysis is the key to improving efficiency and saving money. But analysis is only useful if the right people can see it. With Ignition, you get unlimited clients and unlimited data points, so you never have to choose only a select few who get the system on their desktop. You may have as many members of your company access the data as you need.
Our software has been met with accolades from IT departments across the globe. Ignition is based entirely on modern, cross-platform technology, such as web (HTTP+SSL), SQL databases, and Java.
Ignition has a drag-and-drop designer and uses familiar design paradigms such as the concept of "tags" for real-time control and status, as well as historian functionality. The server installation takes only a minute or two, and there is no client installation (they're web-launched!). Getting started using a new industrial software system has never been easier. Just install, browse your PLCs using the included OPC server, and drag your tags onto screens.
