KEPServerEX Drivers are communication drivers that KEPServerEX uses to communicate with PLC systems and other devices and programs.
KEPServerEX supports over 150 types of these drivers and can communicate through over 300 different communication protocols. Each driver is intended for a specific manufacturer and device. The most popular drivers include drivers for products from SIEMENS, Allen-Bradley, Modbus, Mitsubishi, Omron, Fanuc and other manufacturers.
The KEPServerEX platform collects data and is able to offer it to higher systems in many different formats, the most popular being OPC DA / OPC UA. These OPC specifications make KEPServerEX an OPC UA / OPC DA server. Apart from OPC, the platform can convert data into the ODBC format and log it to a database. It also supports such formats as REST, MQTT and SNMP.
All drivers are included in a single installation file – KEPServerEx.exe (about 400 MB). When installing the platform, you can install one driver only, several drivers or all of them. You can also opt for installing special driver suites for specific industries. The most popular suite is the Manufacturing Suite, which supports over 100 types of industrial automation's communication protocols.
In the Demo mode, each communication driver will run for two hours at a time. The demo period can be repeated at any time by stopping and starting the application, after which the driver will run for another two hours. If you're interested in a longer demo (up to 1 month), please don’t hesitate to contact our technical support.
