I’m at the final stages of evaluating HMI/SCADA software for my department. Based on the scoring model that I created, Ignition came in first place. I’ve had two web demos, I’ve played with the software quite a bit, and I’ve been lurking here for about two months. Still, I have a concern.
From what I’ve read here, most of the questions revolve around how write a script to accomplish something. While most of those questions are resolved fairly quickly, I can’t help but wonder if I’m getting into something a little more complex that I need. While I value the ability to script myself to a solution when necessary, I much prefer to avoid it whenever possible to keep the project simple enough for others to maintain.
How much scripting is really required? Can I create an entire project connected to ControlLogix processors with little to no scripting?
