Ignition, by Inductive Automation, is a powerful web-based Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) development platform. It empowers businesses to easily control their processes allowing users to track, display and analyse data, all in one scalable web-based deployment platform.
The Ignition OPC UA Module can connect virtually any PLC and client functionality to an Ignition system and SQL database. It also has the power to transform an SQL database into an industrial historian and connect to Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices through Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol.
Those who already use the system talk about how easy is to track for example KPIs, ingredients consumption, critical downtimes or how many finished goods were transferred to a warehouse. Operators say that it is easy to create modules and templates, data and reports can be analysed and viewed on any type of mobile devices (cellphone, tablet, laptop) and overhead screens.
