Modules are additional files that allow Ignition to do more. Much like adding a new tool to the workbench, adding new modules extends Ignition's capabilities while offering new ways to approach and solve problems. Most of the main features of Ignition are actually provided by different modules such as the Vision and SQL Bridge modules.
Modules integrate seamlessly into the system and provide things like new Designer workspaces, new Gateway settings, new drivers, and much more. Newly installed modules immediately integrate with other modules, so installation is quick and painless.
The modules in Ignition offer many benefits.
Modules are what drive Ignition's functionality and allow for unlimited possibilities. Here are some common examples of what modules can do:
In addition to the modules provided by Inductive Automation, several third-party companies have developed their own modules using our Module Software Development Kit. These modules add even more possibilities and functionality to help you design any project.
Modules from our Strategic Partners can be found on our downloads page.
Want to help make Ignition better? Check out our SDK documentation where you will find all of the resources necessary to develop your own module. Modules can be as simple as adding scripting functions or components, or as complex as creating whole new systems for Ignition.
