Product Overview

The Siemens Plus Suite for KEPServerEX bundles Kepware’s Siemens drivers with the OPC UA Client driver for users’ convenience. It provides an easy, secure, and reliable way to connect Siemens Ethernet and Serial-based PLCs and devices to client applications, including HMI/SCADA, MES/Historian, ERP, IoT, and custom OPC client applications.

In addition to the features supported in the standard Siemens Suite for KEPServerEX, the Siemens Plus Suite includes connectivity to Siemens S7-1500 controllers via the OPC UA Client driver. Supporting symbolic addressing and optimized data blocks, it enables quicker programming times, improved performance and memory utilization, and the ability to quickly change PLC programming.

The Siemens Plus Suite is especially helpful for Manufacturing Industry users who utilize OPC UA with Siemens S7-1500 controllers and other Siemens products in their machining and molding, process, assembly, robotics, packaging, and material handling process phases.

Kepware works closely with Siemens, a leading supplier of industrial automation, drive, and software solutions, to ensure continued interoperability and support. The Siemens Plus Suite utilizes the only Siemens-sanctioned method for third-party connectivity to Siemens S7-1500 controllers. With the Siemens Plus Suite, users can utilize the world-class connectivity features and tools available in KEPServerEX while retaining the Siemens S7-1500’s performance and security.

What Is a Suite?

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 suite is a collection of drivers and advanced plug-ins for KEPServerEX. These products have been bundled into suites by vertical industry, device manufacturer, or industrial application for the convenience of our customers.

Additional suites can be licensed on demand as connectivity needs evolve.
