PLC Lab Receives Software from Inductive Automation

The College of Computing’s Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), in EERC 427, has received a generous software donation valued at $590,320 from Inductive Automation.

The software consists of 16 licenses of IGNITION, an excellent Supervisory Control and Data Acision (SCADA) package.

“I am excited to incorporate IGNITION software training into my introductory and advanced PLC courses starting Fall of 2024,” says Nathir Rawashdeh, Applied Computing. “This addition will enhance the student learning experience towards Industry 4.0 and beyond.”

Rawashdeh thanks the following for their work to make this happen: Annabelle Haley (Inductive Automation), James Clevenger (Mercury Marine) and Department of Applied Computing chair Dan Fuhrmann.
