Kepware Expands KEPServerEX InteroperabilityNew Enhancements Improve Connectivity for Power Distribution, Extend OPC Support, and Simplify EFM Configuration

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 05 March 2013 Release date- 05032013 - Portland, ME - Kepware Technologies, a software development company focused on communications for automation, today announced new enhancements to its KEPServerEX platform, offering new solutions to simplify communications management.


Today's announcement underscores the company's commitment in listening to customers' needs and developing relevant solutions for a variety of the vertical markets it serves.

The new KEPServerEX 5.11 enhancements include support for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, in addition to the following new products and features: IEC 61850 MMS Client Driver: This new driver utilizes the Manufacturing Messaging Specification (MMS) of the IEC 61850 specification for sending data from substation automation devices (like switches and circuit breakers) to SCADA and HMI applications for analysis and reporting.

OPC XML-DA Client Driver: This new driver strengthens Kepware's OPC Connectivity Suite offering, and enables users to connect to any OPC XML-DA Server. The driver simplifies connectivity to other Third-Party servers and can circumvent proprietary protocols, thus enabling KEPServerEX to easily aggregate OPC data.

EFM Simulator: This new feature is an easy-to-use, Flow Computer simulator within the EFM Suite. The driver simulates EFM historical data in order to confirm that the EFM Exporter Plug-In configuration works properly. The EFM Simulator saves users time and money by eliminating the need to physically connect to flow computers when evaluating the server and exporter configurations.

'I'm excited to begin using Kepware's new IEC 61850 driver for the solar projects we will be working on in 2013 due to the ease of use and robustness I've come to expect with Kepware products,' said Xavier Vallespi, the Technical Information Officer of Green Power Monitor.

KEPServerEX is a flexible and scalable platform that connects, manages, monitors, and controls diverse automation devices and software applications. Kepware continues to evolve the platform's communication abilities to help companies improve their operations and decision-making by ensuring accurate and reliable data.

'Kepware realizes that learning new communication protocols or spending time to understand new applications is inconvenient and often slows business processes,' said Tony Paine, President and CEO of Kepware Technologies. 'To address this situation, we have developed a single server communications platform that enables customers to simply add multiple drivers as needed. The KEPServerEX 5.11 enhancements expand our offering for the quickly-growing Smart Grid and wind farm markets, as well as help simplify the communication needs of Kepware's existing customers.'
