OEE Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) quantifies how well a manufacturing unit performs relative to its designed capacity, during the periods when it is scheduled to run. OEE is a measure of availability, performance, and quality.

OEM Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

An Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is a company that manufactures a product (typically a hardware product) that is then duplicated with little or no changes as it is sold to many customers, i.e., a company that makes printing presses is an OEM and sells to facilities that use the printing presses.

Omron Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

A type of device that Ignition can connect to. Often you hear reference to connecting to an Omron device using Ignition's Omron driver.

On-Call Roster Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

An On-Call Roster is a collection of users that get notified when an alarm notification is sent out. The users are selected from multiple User Sources.

on-demand Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

  • on demand

On-demand usually refers to accessing historical (or stored) data whenever you want. You can generate screens that show charts and reports on-demand, or based on the inputs of the user instead of pre-determined daily or weekly reports.

OPC Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

Open Process Connectivity (OPC) is the name of a technology standard used to write to PLCs. OPC allows information exchange between gauges, databases, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and more.

OPC Server Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

An OPC Server is a software application that acts as an API or protocol converter. An OPC Server can connect to a device such as a PLC, DCS, and RTU or a data source such as a database or HMI to translate the data into a standard OPC format.

OPC Tag Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

Often referred to as just 'Tags', OPC Tags are Ignition Tags that specify an OPC server and address which drives their values. The OPC address will be subscribed at the rate of the tag's scan class during configuration, and values written to these tags will be pushed to the PLCs.

OPC-UA Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) is a communication protocol for interoperability developed by the OPC Foundation. The foundation's goal for this project was to provide a path forward from the original OPC communications model (namely COM/DCOM) to a cross-platform service-oriented architecture (SOA) for process control, while enhancing security and providing an information model.

Using the OPC-UA module, Ignition acts as an OPC-UA server, serving data collected by its built in drivers to other Ignition modules and third-party OPC-UA clients.

Operating System Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

An Operating System (OS) is the underlying software that runs on a computer and provides the user an interface to that computer. Common examples are Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Oracle Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

A relational database that Ignition connects to easily and uses to store or retrieve data.

Open Process Connectivity Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

See OPC.

Original Equipment Manufacturer Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

See OEM.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

See OEE.

OPC-DA Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

OPC Data Access (OPC-DA) is an OPC Foundation specification that defines how real-time data can be transferred between a data source and a data sink (for example, a PLC and an HMI) without either of them having to know each other’s native protocol. In Ignition, the OPC-COM module provides the ability to connect to OPC servers that only communicate using the older COM based OPC-DA standard. OPC-DA is a Windows technology that uses DCOM so it cannot be used cross-platform.

OIDC Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an authentication protocol, based on the OAuth 2.0 family of specifications. OAuth 2.0 allows computing clients to verify the identity of an end-user based on the authentication performed by an authorization server. The standard is controlled by the OpenID Foundation.

OpenID Connect Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)


OpenID Connect Provider Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)

An OpenID Provider (OP) holds the credentials (like a username/ password) and information about the subject. It uses the OIDC authentication protocol. In Ignition, OP is one of the available IdP types.

OP Created Oct 8, 2020 (12:16)
