The Unlimited Platform for SCADA and So Much More

Ignition is unlimited, so for the low cost of one server license you can seamlessly connect all your data, design any kind of industrial application with ease, and instantly web-deploy unlimited industrial and mobile clients to anyone, anywhere — all from one universal platform for industrial automation.

Ignition is server software that acts as the hub for everything on your plant floor for total system integration. No matter what brand, model, or platform, it talks to your plant-floor equipment just as naturally as it talks to SQL databases, seamlessly bridging the gap between production and IT.

Ignition 8.1 adds amazing new features to Ignition Perspective to help you see and control your plant-floor processes more powerfully than ever before.

Powerful New Dynamic and Data-Driven Symbols

In 8.1, we’re adding powerful new dynamic symbols to the Perspective Module called Perspective Symbols. These symbols all have dynamic data models, so binding them to process values is a simple matter of drag-and-drop. They also have built-in animations so they will automatically change based on your data. With Perspective Symbols, creating beautiful HMIs is quicker and easier than ever.

Add Powerful Ad Hoc Charts to Your Projects Instantly

The Power Chart component for Perspective allows you to quickly and easily create runtime-configurable time series charts from Tag Historian data. Now you can easily generate “ad hoc” charts within a Perspective session. Power Chart is also mobile-optimized so it adapts itself automatically for small screens.
