Ignition by Inductive Automation® is a universal industrial application platform capable of unlimited extensibility through the addition of fully integrated software modules. All modules are hot-pluggable so they can be installed, removed, and upgraded without impacting your operations in any way, and they all work together seamlessly.
Ignition Core modules can be used to create virtually any kind of industrial automation solution, including
SCADA, IIoT, MES and beyond. With the Ignition Core modules, we can add features such as charts and
tables, mobile access, voice notifications for alarms, transaction management, sophisticated logic systems,
enterprise administration, and much more.
Use this module to launch an unlimited number of powerful Ignition Vision clients anywhere on the network. Display charts, graphs, trends, HMI screens, and more.
Easily bridge the gap between OPC data and SQL databases with the industry’s most flexible and powerful transaction manager. Easily log data, call stored procedures, and synchronize data bi-directionally.
Turn a SQL database into a high-performance time-series tag historian.
Create dynamic, database-driven PDF reports with pixel-perfect layout — with ease.
Configure the logic for how, why, and when alarm notifications are delivered, manage alarm notification for groups of users, and send notifications via email.
Get mobile access to your control system via smartphones and tablets.
The EAM provides a secure and intuitive way to manage many Ignition installations from one location.
Connect to most major programmable logic controllers (PLCs) with the Ignition OPC UA Module. This module serves as a totally cross-platform OPC UA server with an open, pluggable driver system.
Beyond the core Ignition modules, Inductive Automation has made several other
modules to help us add even more specialized features and
functions to your Ignition system.
Streamline the creation, organization, and visualization of robust logic systems.
Easily embed a web browser component into your Ignition Vision project.
Integrate Ignition with classic COM-based OPC Servers.
Enable both alarm notification and acknowledgment via a phone call.
Add text alerts with the SMS Notification Module for even more options.
Adds integration with Twilio via an SMS Alarm Notification Profile and scripting functions to send SMS.
Allows users to directly program against the web server inside the Ignition Gateway.
Adds the ability to send and receive information over a serial port to Ignition.
Enables Ignition projects and third-party applications to communicate with semiconductor fab equipment.
Ignition Edge by Inductive Automation is a line of lightweight, limited, low-cost Ignition software solutions designed
specifically for embedding into field and OEM devices at the edge of the network. Ignition Edge solutions
are not modules for Ignition and cannot be installed on standard Ignition gateways.
Ignition Edge can act as standalone edge computing solution or as an add-on
that integrates seamlessly with an Ignition system.
Enables edge-of-network HMI functionality with robust Ignition features, including: one local web-launched client, one remote web-launched client, and alarming features including one-way email notification. Ignition Edge Panel includes one week of data buffering for trending and local client fallback for mission-critical applications. Ignition Edge has a 500 tag limit.
Acts as a limited remote server that synchronizes data from the edge of the network to a central Ignition server. Edge Enterprise has powerful features such as distributed tags, history, and remote alarming built in. Additional features such as remote backup, restoration management, and centralized monitoring of performance and health metrics, are also available if the Ignition Enterprise Administration Module (EAM) is installed on the central Ignition server. Ignition Edge has a 500 tag limit.
Turn virtually any field device, such as a touch panel or a client terminal, into a lightweight, MQTT-enabled edge gateway that works seamlessly with Ignition IIoT. Ignition Edge MQTT uses the highly efficient MQTT protocol to transmit data to any MQTT broker and supports the Sparkplug data-encoding specification. Ignition Edge has a 500 tag limit.
Inductive Automation Strategic Partner program offers external software suppliers the opportunity to create
modules for the Ignition platform that they are specialized in. Inductive Automation has chosen to
include these providers in the program because of their strategic alignment with the Ignition
platform product. Products developed by these Strategic Partners are backed with a
commitment to the long-term success for our customers. You may purchase these
modules directly from us.
Cirrus Link Solutions is a strategic third-party module partner of Inductive Automation with years of experience
developing top-quality IIoT solutions. With software modules for transmitting data from the field via MQTT,
launching an MQTT server in the cloud, and connecting that data to industrial and business applications,
the Cirrus Link IIoT modules for Ignition empower organizations to create
one streamlined pipeline for all their IIoT data.
Bidirectionally communicate with edge-of-the-network devices securely via an MQTT Server. Create one pipeline for all your IIoT data that increases throughput and efficiencies of data acquisition throughout the enterprise.
Adds an MQTT server to the Ignition platform that enables MQTT clients to securely connect, publish, and subscribe to data. Enable MQTT clients for operational and business applications to connect to IIoT data throughout the enterprise. With a limit of 50 simultaneously connected clients and its ability to run as a module on Ignition, The MQTT Distributor Module is ideal for smaller solutions.
Enable Ignition to quickly and easily create connections to MQTT servers and start publishing TAG data via MQTT.
For multiple MQTT Server redundancies and a higher number of connected clients, the Cirrus Link Chariot MQTT Server is offered for on-premise or cloud-connected applications. The Chariot MQTT Server is delivered as per the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) which is an open standard for packaging and distributing virtual appliances; this enables it to be run for private on-premise or cloud applications. Chariot MQTT Server software is an OASSyS MQTT 3.1.1 compliant server.
The AWS Injector module enables end users of Ignition to select tag data from the Ignition platform to be sent into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure for analytics. With a simple configuration, tag data will flow into the AWS Kinesis Streams or DynamoDB using an easy to read JSON representation to take full advantage of AWS and all the benefits it offers.
The Azure Injector module enables end users of Ignition to select tag data from the Ignition platform to be sent into the Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure through the Azure IoT Hub. With a simple configuration, tag data will flow into the Azure IoT Hub using an easy to read JSON representation enabling the access of Big Data & Analytics of operational data.
Combines both OEE calculations and downtime tracking to give operations managers a robust software package that measures efficiency and insight into how to boost OEE.
This paperless, fully integrated solution can provide production control and track product from the raw materials to the finished state, access genealogy data, and set up a centralized operator interface for all MES information.
Reduce or eliminate late or missing sample collection, inaccurate sample data and other issues leading to quality problems and deliver and analyze your SPC data in real-time.
Expertly build, manage and monitor recipes and quickly and accurately changing machine, process or system recipes.
Capture raw textual data from instrument type devices via serial, text files, OPC devices and more, and parse out that data to Ignition, databases or other systems.
Extends Ignition client to detect and decode 1D and 2D barcode inputs using the built-in GS1 International Standard or custom defined barcode formats.
Connect multiple MES Ignition Gateways across your entire enterprise to form a large, centrally managed MES solution. Analyze MES data from multiple production facilities at the enterprise server.

To provide companies with a process that runs as smoothly as a Swiss watch. This in an affordable and socially responsible way.
Western Europe has high-end products in terms of quality, but it can hardly compete with low-wage countries. Process optimization makes it possible for companies to compete with these countries and to have their products produced on their own soil again.
