SCADA, IIoT and MES in a Single Platform

Ignition is a universal software platform for developing industrial applications such as SCADA, IIoT, MES, HMI, condition monitoring and more. What does it enable you to do?

  • Connect to control systems
  • Connect data across the plant
  • Easily design any industrial application
  • And scale it up and down without limits
  • Instantly web-enable an unlimited number of clients on their computers, mobile devices and HMI panels


No limitations

You only pay for the server, with no limit on the number of users, tags or projects.


Applications are fully responsive for mobile and tablet devices.

Runs on any major OS

Supports Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS and Android, so it is suitable for everyone.

Scalable solution

Designed for architectures of any type or size



Create large-scale solutions for entire production units, halls and plants. Do not limit yourself and connect all the data you need to Ignition.

Ignition has no limits on the number of connected PLC devices, OPC servers, MQTT values, databases, etc.

clients and screens

Data collection projects often start as small solutions for a few users but later grow into large, plant-wide systems that hundreds of employees need to connect to.

Ignition is sold by the server, so an unlimited number of clients can connect to a single Ignition server licence.


With Ignition, many people can develop projects at the same time, whether on the integrator side or perhaps your entire team. The price is not based on the number of project developers – their number is unlimited.

Some industrial automation software companies still charge for each client, and the price also depends on the number of tags.

But Ignition's policy is different. We have your interests at heart, so we want you to be able to add more devices to Ignition and share your information with more people. This is, after all, the idea behind the Internet of Things.

You can get started by using Ignition to monitor one machine and eventually be using the platform to manage your entire business at a fraction of the cost of other solutions. There are no buts or hidden fees. See for yourself and check out our price list.

Ignition licences are sold per server.


Ignition Features

Being modular, the Ignition platform offers many possibilities. Build your project on a suitable architecture and choose the features you need. The possibilities are endless. What can the platform do?

  • Communication with PLCs
    You can connect to control systems via OPC UA (e.g. using the KEPServerEX platform) or Ignition's integrated drivers, such as Siemens Driver, Modbus Ethernet Driver, Allen-Bradley Driver Suite, Omron Driver and UDP and TCP Drivers.
  • Visualisations, HMIs and dashboards
    Make informed decisions, driven by user-friendly visualisations on PCs, mobile devices and HMI panels.
  • Mobile devices
    Build mobile- and tablet-responsive industrial applications using HTML5. You can also download the Ignition Perspective App for iOS and Android.
  • Redundancy and data security
    Achieve maximum reliability. Ignition is built on proven industrial-grade security technology and offers many redundancy options.
  • Alarms
    Create alarms to promptly notify staff of any event or status change via email, text or voice.
  • Dynamic reports
    Easily create and deliver dynamic database-driven industrial reports.
  • Scripting language
    Program specific tasks using the Jython language, which is an implementation of the Python language for the Java platform.
  • Integration with IIoT platforms
    Ignition supports full integration with other IIoT platforms, for example Microsoft Azure, AWS IoT, Watson IoT, etc.
  • Read/write operations
    With Ignition, you can read as well as write data, allowing you to monitor and control your production.

IIgnition as SCADA HMI

A comprehensive set of tools for data acquisition, real-time status and process control, an optimised HMI interface, alarms, reports and analytics make Ignition the ideal platform for SCADA HMI applications. Ignition's affordability, scalability and other features make it a world leader.

Ignition for machine condition monitoring

Ignition offers fast monitoring of physical quantities, for example pressure, consumption, quality, vibrations and temperatures. The integrated scripting language gives you the ability to look for connections among the quantities measured and detect anomalies in machine behaviour. Based on the requirements of your maintenance, we will create a user-friendly dashboard for you that will display all the required information on your computers and mobiles.

Ignition for facility condition monitoring

Many factories are looking for a platform to monitor the operation of the production hall itself – energy, water, heat and air consumption, faults on the plant floor, temperatures in shops, how many times a gate has opened, etc. With Ignition, you can put data on the production hall and its surroundings in context, correlate it with data on production or a machine's condition and look for possible connections. For instance, in summer, it gets hotter on the shop floor. Control cabinets may overheat, and some machines may not like that. It is thus important that you monitor your plant environment and prevent this situation.

Ignition as MES

Collect data from machines and use Ignition to monitor your production and create systems that will streamline your production operations. Tracking orders, machine availability and downtime is the foundation, which can be enhanced with monitoring the specific causes of machine downtime through machine health monitoring. As Ignition supports an unlimited number of users and runs on various operating systems (Windows, Linux, iOS and Android), you can equip each machine with a tablet or a panel PC with an application for the machine operator.


Where to install Ignition?

The central Ignition Gateway can be:

  • On one central server
  • Distributed across several servers
  • Located on-premise / in the cloud / a combination of both
  • Put all the way out to the edge of the network


The US company Inductive Automation was founded in California in 2003. It released the Ignition platform in 2010. It has over 2,200 integrators worldwide.

Today, Inductive Automation is a leader in the development of HMI, SCADA, MES and IIoT software applications.
