Product Overview

The Siemens S7-200 driver works in conjunction with KEPServerEX to exchange data between OPC clients and Siemens S7-200 PLCs using the PPI (11 bit) or PPM (10 bit) protocol. It includes direct support for the EM241 Modem Module. KEPServerEX automatically optimizes data acquisition based on client demand and ensures data integrity through extensive error handling.

Added support for Communication Serialization.

The driver normally operates using the standard 11 bit PPI protocol. If the use of the EM 241 modem module is required, the S7-200 PPM model must be selected. The S7-200 PPM model allows the driver to operate in a 10 bit mode, which is more compatible with a wide range of off-the-shelf modems. The 10 bit PPM mode can also be used directly on the PLC's programming port. To enable the 10 bit PPM mode, set the S7-200 programming cable 10 bit mode.

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.
