Product Overview

The CODESYS Ethernet driver works in conjunction with KEPServerEX to connect to operations utilizing CODESYS, a PLC runtime and development environment used by many PLC brands in the Automation Industry.

The CODESYS Ethernet driver is especially useful to the Pharmaceutical, Food and Beverage, and Packaging industries, where data must be collected from controllers across the factory for a number of applications—including traceability, monitoring and control, and plant-wide automation.

With the CODESYS Ethernet driver, KEPServerEX seamlessly connects to devices running CODESYS V2.3 and V3 to provide reliable and secure access to real-time industrial data.

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.
