Software Delivers OPC-UA Promise

As a major update to the vendor’s line of industrial software products, Ignition provides support for OPC-UA, the next-generation standard for industrial data communication.

Ignition is billed as the first product on the market to fully deliver on the promise of OPC-UA by being 100% cross platform. “Using OPC-UA, we expand our connectivity options and allow our customers to use the platform of their choice. Best of all, we are proud to offer our end-users the Ignition OPC-UA server and drivers absolutely free,” says Steve Hechtman, president at the vendor. Ignition continues the vendor’s philosophy of open, accessible systems that are unhindered by traditional licensing restrictions. Unlimited tags, screens and no-install clients deployed using Web-Launch technology mean that customers can focus on making data available, without being hung up by cost. The ability to connect to any number of databases and the ability to open multiple Web-launched design clients at no additional cost further expand the software’s value. Ignition is fully backwards compatible with the vendor’s earlier Factory SQL and FactoryPMI products. New features like the SQL Tags Historian make the software easier to use and more efficient. Many diverse architectures are possible, from a stand-alone HMI to large-scale, geographically distributed installations.
