Product Overview

The Advanced Simulator driver was designed to plug into our industrial based communications server product, KEPServerEX. This product supplies reliable data access to any HMI, SCADA, Historian, or Enterprise application supporting OPC, DDE, FastDDE, and SuiteLink. This driver provides single-point access to multiple ODBC data sources via ODBC. The driver simulates live data by traversing through all the records in a selected table at a rate set by the user.

  • Multiple connection sessions to multiple ODBC data sources
  • OPC DA
  • Tags updated regularly from the database
  • Drag and drop editing, and CSV import and export for manipulating large numbers of tags easily
  • New tags can be added to your application at any time, even at runtime
  • Dynamic table access method

What Is a Driver?

KEPServerEX is more than an OPC server—it's a connectivity platform for industrial automation and IoT. Simply download KEPServerEX, and then select from Kepware's library of more than 150 device drivers, client drivers, and advanced plug-ins to fit the communication requirements unique to your industrial control system.

A driver is a software component that enables KEPServerEX to meet the connectivity requirements of a specific device, system, or other data source. The driver handles all proprietary communications to the data source for KEPServerEX; the client interfaces handle all supported OPC, proprietary, and open standards connectivity to applications that monitor or control the devices.

Drivers may be licensed individually or in suites. Additional drivers can be licensed on demand as connectivity needs evolve.
