Central Server Management
Create a scalable, centrally managed SCADA system using Ignition's server-based architecture. Do more with unlimited connections to PLCs, databases, and web-launched clients.

The Ignition Gateway supports dual-Ethernet servers, and will launch clients on both a corporate network and an isolated control network.
Independent Ignition Gateways provide local control and SCADA functionality. Corporate wide area network (WAN) plus client retargeting provides secure and seamless access across multiple facilities.
Connections between a database and remote PLCs are usually unreliable. The Ignition SQL Bridge Module installed on embedded data logging computers uses store-and-forward to ensure that data is never lost.
Using redundancy, two Ignition installations can be linked together, so that when one fails, the other takes over and continues executing. All of the clients connected will be redirected to the backup machine, and historical data will continue to be logged.
Ignition can operate as an OPC server with just the OPC-UA module installed. OPC-UA clients can then access the PLC data.
