Database Support

Ignition by Inductive Automation® supports most SQL databases. It has been used in production successfully with the following:

  • Microsoft SQLServer
  • Oracle
  • IBM DB2
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • Firebird
  • Microsoft Access (not an SQL database server)
  • Others

For others the differences between SQL syntax are easily reconciled in a database definition file.

1. Any Real-Time Tag may additionally be enabled as a “Historical Tag”. This provides easy, efficient logging including data compression, retrieval optimization and automatic table management, including table partitioning, in any SQL database you provide.
2. This is simple drag and drop data logger without compression or other optimization. Selected OPC items are represented as columns in a table of any SQL database you provide.
3. Transaction Groups provide powerful database /PLC connectivity and manipulation tools. This is the engineer’s “Swiss Army Knife” which enables the creation of sophisticated data intensive applications (which would otherwise not be possible without extensive custom programming and advanced programming skills).
Note: Bulk, OEM, site, and corporate licenses are available. Call for details.
