Kepware Demonstrates Commitment to Communications Standards and Leading Hardware Providers with Updates to Flagship Product
KEPServerEX version 5.15 introduces new Omron NJ Ethernet Driver and updated BACnet/IP Driver with object support
PORTLAND, Maine, July 22, 2014 — Kepware Technologies, a software development company focused on communications for automation, today announced major product updates to KEPServerEX version 5.15. The release demonstrates Kepware’s unwavering commitment to communications standards and support of industry-leading hardware manufacturers. The updates are particularly relevant to customers in the Manufacturing, Building Automation, and Energy Management markets.
KEPServerEX version 5.15 introduces the
Omron NJ Ethernet Driver to its Omron Server Suite. The industry’s only
native driver, it provides connectivity to Omron Sysmac NJ controllers,
utilizing the EtherNet/IP protocol for fast and robust communications.
Recognized by Omron as a Vendor Endorsed Protocol, the driver enables
unimpeded communications to HMI, MES, and other client applications
through the KEPServerEX communications platform.
KEPServerEX version 5.15 also features
major enhancements to the BACnet/IP Driver to support schedule and
calendar objects for the Building Automation and Energy Management
markets. The driver supplies data access to clients outside of typical
Building Automation clients, including HMI, SCADA, Historian, and
Enterprise applications that support OPC standards.
In addition to the Omron and BACnet
drivers, KEPServerEX version 5.15 includes updates to 28 of its
supported drivers and plug-ins, including AES Version 3 encryption
support for the SNMP Driver. Kepware also recently released ClientAce
version 220.127.116.11, a .NET developer toolkit that enables applications
programmers to design custom OPC clients. Maintaining its highly
intuitive drag and drop development style, ClientAce now includes
support for Visual Studio 2013 and .NET 4.5 Framework.
