Jan. 6, 2022

Electronic Drives and Controls Inc. (EDC), a control system integrator and field service company, announced Zack Fischer achieved the Core Level Certification for Ignition 8.0 in the Inductive University program by Inductive Automation.

“We are excited about adding this platform to our capabilities. Ignition fits certain applications better than some of the more traditional tools we have used,” said Chuck Dillard, vice president, Systems Group at Electronic Drives and Controls. “The software is easily scalable, so we have the ability to right-size the software for the application. We look forward to implementing this technology to benefit new and existing clients.”

Ignition by Inductive Automation is an industrial server software platform that can communicate with both SQL databases and equipment on the plant floor. With the extensive library of compatible brands and models, Ignition makes a great hub to connect production and IT.

To receive his certification, Fischer passed the core certification test. The core test covers the basics of Ignition, including UDTs, alarming, historical data logging and templates. The current certification level is for Ignition 8.0 and will update with each new version of Ignition.
