I need a little help here, I am new to Ignition , but am using the trial model to see if it provides me with information required for my decision making.
I have 3 different weighing scales setup on my production floor
They provide two simple pieces of information
I have connected these weighing scales via RS-232 to a Computer and I am getting the Data feed from them.
But it is configured on a vendor software that is not too good for me.
I want to replace it with Ignition Database and use it to get reporting on timely basis.
So for example I want to see a Process Control Chart ( Time and Weight ) for different Shifts in my production schedule.
There are three shifts
Shift A- 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
Shift B - 3:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Shift C - 11:00 pm - 7:00 am
Now I want to use Ignition to Add up all the weight`s measured and provide me an accurate output information.
How do I do that ? Starting from the basics ? Like How do I connect the DEVICES , I can use the DESIGNER
Any help would be highly appreciated.
