FactoryPMI Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:22)

FactoryPMI is a legacy software product by Inductive Automation. It is now encapsulated in the Vision module for Ignition. It is a sophisticated HMI/SCADA package that uses any SQL database as the primary data store. Runtime and Design environments are web-launched, rather than being installed by hand on each workstation. PMI stands for Plant Management Interface. FactoryPMI had a similar Gateway, Designer, and Runtime (client) to what Ignition has now.

FactorySQL Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:22)

FactorySQL is a legacy software product by Inductive Automation. It is now encapsulated in the SQLBridge module for Ignition. It is a sophisticated communication bridge that synchronizes and/or logs data between PLCs and SQL databases.

failover Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:22)

  • fail over

To failover is to automatically switch to another copy of your client or device. This should only happen when something has gone wrong with the primary object. A failover device (or piece of software) is a second copy that will be used when the primary fails.

file server Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:22)

A file server refers to a computer that holds files that are available to the network. Often Ignition will save reports onto a file server, or access files from a file server and load them into a database or display them for users.

focus Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:22)

When a component has focus, you are able to interact with it through the keyboard. Only one component at a time can have focus. Clicking on a component or pressing tab takes focus away from one component and grants it to the next.

Any components that you can interact with can hold focus, for example, input fields like a numeric text field or drop-down menu, tables, and some chart components. Static components like images or tanks cannot hold focus.

FTP Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:22)

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard way for programs to upload and download files from a computer or service. Generally, this implies you are going through the internet to connect to the computer hosting your files.

Federated Identity Management Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:22)

Federated Identity Management (FIM) is an arrangement made between two or more trusted domains, to allow users of these trusted domains to access applications and services using the same digital identity. An identity such as this is known as federated identity. The use of such a system is sometimes called identity federation.
