What is Ignition Reporting and how do I buy it?
Ignition Reporting is a software solution for building custom reporting applications. It consists of the Ignition platform and powerful Ignition modules that add functionality to the platform. A standard Ignition Reporting package consists of these modules: Reporting, Vision, OPC UA (with drivers), and Tag Historian. You may need a different set of modules depending on what you’re trying to do; to find what you’ll need to create your ideal reporting system, call us at: 1-800-266-7798
Can I schedule reports to be emailed?
Yes, you can schedule reports to be sent out based on a triggered event or time of day.
How does Ignition’s free trial work?
You can download the full version of Ignition for free on our download page. Ignition only takes three minutes to install and it comes with all the core modules. By default, Ignition will run in trial mode which will timeout after two hours but you can manually reset it as many times as you wish, which allows you to build and test a full project in Ignition without buying a license. Once you’re ready, you can purchase and install your Ignition license key, which will take Ignition out of trial mode by removing the two-hour timeout. All your previous work will be saved with no additional installation required.
Which SQL databases does Ignition support?
Ignition supports all of the major SQL databases including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and IBM DB2.
Is Ignition compatible with other SCADA packages?
Yes, Ignition is based on open, non-proprietary, IT-standard technologies. Ignition is fully interoperable and compatible with other SCADA packages along with other industrial and enterprise systems. Ignition was designed to work great alongside other systems or on its own so it’s easy to fit into your existing solutions.
Is there training available to learn how to use Ignition?
Yes, we offer live Ignition training classes. To see when the next available class is, visit our Training page. We also have hundreds of on-demand training videos available for you to view whenever you want at: inductiveuniversity.com
Can we configure our own reports in the runtime?
Yes, you can dynamically create reports based on various parameters and filters. You can also configure the design of the report in the Ignition Designer.
What are Ignition modules and how do they work?
Ignition is a unified platform for connecting data, and designing and deploying industrial applications throughout an enterprise. The development power of Ignition is extensible through the addition of fully integrated software modules. Each module adds new functions to the Ignition platform, which enables users to create applications for SCADA, MES, IIoT, alarming, reporting, and more. Visit our Modules page to learn more.
What do you mean by “unlimited licensing”?
Ignition is sold by the server, so the affordable cost of one license gives you an unlimited number of clients, tags, and connections — the only limiting factor for Ignition is the performance of the hardware you install it on. Visit our Unlimited Licensing page to learn more.
What kind of devices can Ignition run on?
Ignition is cross-platform compatible so it can run on Windows 10 and 11, and Windows Server 2016, 2019, and 2022, as well as Linux and macOS. Ignition can run on any device including PCs, laptops, servers, tablets, smartphones, remote field devices, and even Raspberry Pi’s.
