One thing that sets Ignition by Inductive Automation® apart is its server-centric web-based deployment model. With Ignition, we can instantly
web-launch an unlimited number of zero-install, full runtime clients on virtually any device.
The central Ignition gateway can be on one central server or distributed across several servers, located on-premise,
in the cloud, or a combination of both. We can even put Ignition all the way out to the edge of the network.
In addition to being used for smaller, centrally managed single-server architectures, Ignition can scale gracefully for use in larger distributed architectures where one Controller Gateway is used to manage multiple Agent Gateways,
or in scale-out architectures where the workload is distributed between multiple Gateways.
Ignition installs on a server in just 3 minutes and it uses Java Web-Start technology to instantly deploy to an unlimited number of clients to any devices equipped with a web browser — desktops, panels or even mobile.
Updates in Ignition work like magic: just make changes on the server and push them to everyone, instantly, without creating any downtime or taking the system offline.
With the Ignition platform, we can connect multiple Ignition Gateways together to form a secure, high-performance Gateway Network. By utilizing the network’s powerful Distributed Services feature, we can also share data between Gateways including the ability to browse, get real-time values, and full read/write, and editing capabilities on tags from a different Gateway.
We also have the power to send, receive, and acknowledge all alarms from the Gateway Network on a central Gateway; as well as the power to query and store historical data on a different Gateway in the network.
Ignition comes with unlimited connections and uses the same code base to run on large cloud servers, small devices like Raspberry Pi, or edge-of-network field devices, so we can connect all your data and devices together on one platform.
With unlimited connections, we can connect all your industrial devices, databases, and business data together so we can drive operational intelligence throughout your enterprise from one central location.
Ignition is free to try and only takes 3 minutes to install.
Use it as long as you want. Start building your Ignition project today.
