Using this free driver, connection to a bar-code scanner, for example, can be done in minutes. From there the data is parsed by the driver and exposed via Inductive Automation’s free OPC-UA server to the rest of Ignition or 3rd party OPC-UA clients. This means that the data could be handled by the Ignition SQL Bridge module for data-logging or redistribution to one or more PLCs in near real time. May be used by the Ignition Vision module to display this information in SCADA clients.
