Easy Automatic Data Collection

SPC data can come from a variety of sources so Ignition SPC comes with the tools you need to collect it. Ignition SPC was built with support for automatically collecting data from PLC devices, OPC-connected devices, lab instruments, RS232 devices, USB devices, data files, web services and external databases. When automatic data collection is not possible, the SPC Module supports manual data entry. In cases when there is no network connectivity, offline data collection is possible using mobile iOS or Android devices.

Lab Instruments

A built-in instrument interface module allows for data collection from a large assortment of lab instruments.

Additional Factors

Ignition SPC supports the collection of data not typically associated with quality, but that can directly impact it. These factors can include raw material vendors, maintenance, humidity, temperature and much more.
