Welcome to Ignition by Inductive Automation, the next generation of accessible, scalable, and data-centric HMI/SCADA/MES software. Ignition was designed from ground up to be approachable, yet flexible enough to scale up to the largest projects.
Ignition supports many different system architectures. The manner in which Ignition is installed affects how it interacts with other key systems, such as databases and OPC servers. Most users begin using a standard architecture, where Ignition and all components are all installed on a single machine. As your system expands, you can explore other possible architectures.
Ignition can easily be installed and upgraded on any Java-enabled operating system, such as the Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
