I have been tasked with learning ignition and eventually assist in connecting it to some of our critical production equipment. I am coming into this at ground level knowledge wise with this and there is currently no real SCADA system at our facility.
I have a few questions:
I feel it would be wise to purchase a PLC and assemble a test rig with a few sensors…etc of some sorts prior to trying to deploy to real production equipment. Would you agree?
If so what are some PLCs that play well with ignition? We have a lot of AB and Siemens PLCs currently. Perhaps a AB micro that uses CCW or something else? Ideally it would a PLC that is easy to connect to network and into ignition.
Any other pointers you’d want to know if you were in this situation? Any input in appreciated as this is very new and will be a long road to achieved the desired results with my current teams knowledge level.
Thanks in advance,
