A Connectivity Platform
KEPServerEX is a single solution for collecting, aggregating, and providing secure access to industrial operations data.
Its platform design allows users to connect, manage, monitor, and control diverse automation devices and software applications from plant control systems to enterp rise information systems
KEPServerEX offers the broadest range of drivers available, supporting current and legacy devices across various verticals within the Industrial Automation Industry. Drivers support a variety of wired and wireless networks including Ethernet, serial, and proprietary networks and various telemetry mediums. KEPServerEX provides connectivity to databases, custom software applications, and other OPC servers, and supports simulation for implementation and testing prior to deployment.
Through data conditioning and reduction, customized load balancing, and protocol-specific communications optimization, KEPServerEX improves communications and reduces network and device load. It also features Machine-to-Machine linking and redundancy.
KEPServerEX maximizes data applications by supporting connections to thousands of data sources and providing information to hundreds of applications through a single architecture. This eliminates the need to purchase, operate, and maintain disparate applications for discrete connectivity.
KEPServerEX provides accessibility to leading automation, Big Data, and analytics software via OPC, proprietary protocols, and IT protocols (including MQTT, REST, ODBC, and SNMP). Historical data is accessed through OPC standards, trend logs, and Electronic Flow Measurement (EFM) for hydrocarbons.
Tools within KEPServerEX expand administrators’ abilities to control user access and regulate browse/read/write privileges for secure data communications. KEPServerEX supports a number of secure client standards including SNMP, OPC, and HTTPS to further restrict access to the server, as well as a number of secure device protocols to meet the requirements of DNP3, SNMP, and OPC UA data sources.
KEPServerEX provides robust communications diagnostics to easily isolate and troubleshoot device and application communications.
