Using the Instrument Interface Module provides a seamless solution to eliminating hundreds of lines of code and extracting only the meaningful values from devices connected to your SCADA system.

Unparalleled Collaboration

The Instrument Interface Module can be used as a stand-alone module, but it also seamlessly collaborates with all Ignition instrument devices.
