EFM Exporter OPC Server

EFM Suite: Liquid Electronic Flow Measurement (EFM) Support

The EFM Suite for KEPServerEX provides communication drivers for collecting real-time and historical gas and liquid EFM data from flow computers and RTUs. With the KEPServerEX version 5.14 release, Kepware now provides liquid EFM support for existing Fisher ROC+ and OMNI Flow Computer drivers, as well as the EFM Exporter that has been engineered to create liquid CFX files.
OPC DataLogger

DataLogger Plug-In: Store and Forward Support

The new store and forward functionality for Kepware's DataLogger Plug-In stores data locally when connectivity to the SQL server is lost (or the server is busy or overloaded), and then forwards the stored data to the SQL server once the server becomes available again. Use the DataLogger Plug-In offered in KEPServerEX version 5.14 to guarantee delivery of valuable process data to your SQL server.
Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet Driver

Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet Driver: Automatic Tag Generation

KEPServerEX version 5.14 includes major usability improvements for the Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet Driver, including Automatic Tag Generation for S7 300 and S7 400 Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).
Allen-Bradley ControlLogix OPC Server

Allen-Bradley ControlLogix Driver: Performance Improvements

KEPServerEX now allows packet size configuration, which takes advantage of larger packet sizes allowed in the ControlLogix Controllers firmware revision 20 and higher and in newer Ethernet modules. Testing has demonstrated that Symbol Instance reads in KEPServerEX version 5.14 are as fast as Direct Memory Access (DMA) in KEPServerEX version 5.9⎯and in some cases, over 100% faster when leveraging higher packet sizes.
