Welcome to Ignition by Inductive Automation
Ignition is not like any other HMI / SCADA system you've seen before! Ignition is a single install, runs from a single location, is server based, and is sold by the server not by the client. It uses current web-based technology and allows you to bring the IT department and the plant floor closer than ever. Ignition uses Java for fast secure runtime clients, and that means it can be used on any system, any version. Windows 10, Mac OSX, Linux or Cloud servers. You can switch between systems or use one type for the server and a combination of types for your runtime clients. If an IT department wants to use Windows servers to host and the Operations groups want to use their new MacBooks, Ignition can handle it.
What can Ignition do for you? It has built-in, drag and drop functionality for just about anything you can imagine. Ignition does HMI/SCADA controls, Dashboards, Historical Trending, Database access, Reporting, Alarming, Security, Sequential Function Charts, Redundancy, Failover control, Enterprise Administration, and more. Ignition does all this well because of its Modular Architecture. You choose the features and functionality you need. Want to try some of the other features? You always have a full version of Ignition with a resettable timer to try new things. Play around as much as you like and decide for yourself what you want.
