Kepware Releases KEPServerEX® Version 6.2

Kepware announced the release of the KEPServerEX® version 6.2 industrial connectivity platform. Significant enhancements include localization of core server components and top-tier drivers into simplified Chinese, a new TIA Portal Exporter utility, new functionality for the CODESYS Ethernet driver, improved interoperability with the ThingWorx® IoT Platform, and Configuration API support for the EFM Exporter. With KEPServerEX version 6.2, core server components and top-tier drivers including the Allen-Bradley Suite, Mitsubishi Suite, Omron Suite, and more have been localized into simplified Chinese. KEPServerEX version 6.2 also includes the following: New TIA Portal Exporter Utility: Customers with Siemens S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, and S7-1500 controllers that utilize the Siemens TIA Portal can now gain immediate access to their data. Used with the Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet driver, the TIA Portal Exporter Utility enables users to automatically generate the specific tags they need for their KEPServerEX projects. million CODESYS Ethernet driver: KEPServerEX version 6.2 provides real-time read/write data access to devices running CODESYS V3. Customers with smart, connected operations using devices that run on CODESYS (a common PLC runtime and development environment) can now easily collect industrial data from disparate devices across their plant. Enhanced ThingWorx integration: Customers utilizing KEPServerEX with ThingWorx can now quickly and easily find and utilize industrial data in augmented reality experiences, machine learning models, mashups, or other ThingWorx tools. In conjunction with ThingWorx 8, KEPServerEX version 6.2 contains new functionality that gives users easy access to all of their KEPServerEX data within ThingWorx Composer, the ability to quickly associate that data with new or existing things in the ThingModel, and the ability to view mapping and critical diagnostic information from the ThingWorx platform. Configuration API support for the EFM Exporter: Customers can now make programmatic changes to the EFM Exporter via third-party applications (such as SCADA, HMI, IoT applications, and simple web applications) enabling project standardization and simplification. KEPServerEX version 6.2 also includes updates to 19 other server components, drivers, and advanced plug-ins.

Kepware Announces Release of KEPServerEX® Version 6.1 Connectivity Software and CODESYS Ethernet Driver for Connectivity to Devices Running CODESYS V2.3

Kepware announced the release of KEPServerEX® Version 6.1 connectivity software. The new release is a natural evolution of Version 6, further strengthening the industrial connectivity platform's core server functionalities that support operational intelligence and the rapid development and deployment of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions. Key updates include an enhanced OPC UA Client driver, expanded Configuration API capabilities, and new connectivity mapping features. Building upon the global connectivity, usability, and performance enhancements provided in Version 6, KEPServerEX Version 6.1 includes the following: OPC UA Client driver updates and new Siemens Plus Suite: Customers now have full access to controllers with embedded OPC UA Servers. For example, customers with S7-1500 controllers or next generation B&R devices can now access their data using high-performance OPC UA connectivity. Updates to the OPC UA Client driver include support for OPC UA Nano profile servers as well as complex data types. As packaged with new Siemens Plus Suite, these enhancements provide the only Siemens-approved method for third-party communication to S7-1500 PLCs using optimized data blocks. Configuration API updates: Customers using the Configuration API to remotely Create, Read, Update, and Delete (CRUD) configuration objects in KEPServerEX can now perform these actions on the IoT Gateway advanced plug-in. The Configuration API has also been enhanced to support access to Event Log messages without the KEPServerEX configuration client. Enhanced KEPServerEX integration with the ThingWorx® Industrial IoT Platform: Enables customers with smart, connected manufacturing applications or products that leverage industrial controllers to seamlessly map tags within KEPServerEX to properties on devices connected to ThingWorx. In addition, the KEPServerEX V6.1 release introduced the new CODESYS Ethernet driver for connectivity to devices running CODESYS V2.3. It also features enhancements to 34 key drivers and advanced plug-ins, including improved performance for the Mitsubishi Ethernet and Omron NJ Ethernet drivers and connectivity to Amazon Web Services IoT Platform through the IoT Gateway's MQTT Agent. The major release of KEPServerEX V6 was designed to address the industry's need to produce and analyze greater types of data to supply a wider, more diverse set of client applications. KEPServerEX V6 is enterprise-ready, IT-friendly and secure software that enables remote configuration, support for critical industrial automation markets in Asia and Europe, and a simplified user and licensing experience.
