Product Overview

The Simatic/TI 505 Ethernet driver works in conjunction with KEPServerEX to exchange data between OPC clients and CTI 2500 Series PLCs (using on-board Ethernet port) or Siemens Simatic 545/555 PLCs (using the 2572 / 2572-A / 505-CP2572 / 505-CP1434-TCP Ethernet interface). KEPServerEX automatically optimizes data acquisition based on client demand and ensures data integrity through extensive error handling.

Release Notes



  • IP address octets are now properly constrained to a maximum value of 255.



  • Fixed an issue where CTI 2500 controllers did not support the CAMP protocol to access DCP address types. The CAMP+Packed Task Code protocol option fixes this issue.



Performance enhancement for Address Types X, Y, and C.


  • Added the following new models: CP2572, CTI 2572, CTI 2572-A, and CTI 2500 Series. These new CTI models are identical in behavior to the corresponding Simatic505 models.


  • Added Boolean type to V, WX and WY register bit access in hints.

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.
