Welcome to the New Home for Ignition Documentation!
Welcome to Ignition by Inductive Automation, a true Industrial Application Platform. It is the next generation of accessible, scalable, and data-centric HMI/SCADA software. Ignition was designed from the ground up to be approachable and easy to get started with, but highly flexible and capable of scaling up to the largest projects.
In this manual, you will find reference information along with step-by-step instructions. The final goal of the content and information provided here is to help you gain understanding in regards to Ignition concepts and accomplish tasks within Ignition so that you can be productive and effective while working on your own projects.
The table of content is organized so you can easily find answers to your questions on all the Ignition features, modules, and scripting functions. The Feature section is closely tied with the Inductive University so you can have conceptual understanding from this manual and a visual fast walk-through of the feature in the videos. The Modules section provides information relating to each Module. And finally, in the Appendix, you can easily search to find the specific function you are looking for.
Some of the things you will learn in this manual are: how to install the software, connect to PLCs and databases, create your own projects, create tags, launch clients, set alarms, and generate reports.
Let's get started!
