Write Your Own Modules

Users of Ignition software can now write their own modules using the Ignition Module Software Development Kit (SDK), which is now available for free via the vendor’s Web site.

The SDK is based 100% on Java, so anyone who knows or wants to learn Java can write his or her own modules. It opens up what can be done with the Ignition platform. Developers can write device drivers for the free Ignition OPC-UA Module, create components for the Vision module, Authentication Profiles for a custom authentication scheme, or even a completely new module. When developing a new module, developers may use the module for themselves for free. Or, if they wish to resell the module, developers may apply to become a partner with the vendor to become a third-party module author. Interested users can visit the vendor’s Web site to fill out a developer form and sign up for a free developer key to download the Module SDK file.
